Enabling local success: A Primer on Mainstreaming Local Ecosystem-Based Solutions to Poverty-Environment Challenges, October 2011

— sector: Conservation and biodiversity, Forestry and natural resource management
— theme: Environment and climate
— country: Global

This primer assembles current knowledge and illustrative case materials on the benefits of and enabling conditions for local ecosystem-based initiatives. It documents how nature-focused activities and enterprises originated and executed by local actors, can sustain ecosystems and improve the livelihoods and well-being of the rural poor. The primer is designed to help PEI practitioners and others engaged in the mainstreaming challenge communicate to policy makers the positive poverty and environmental outcomes that can result at the local level when environmental mainstreaming efforts at the national and sectoral levels succeed.
