The Conservation & Livelihoods Digest

About The Digest

The link between conservation strategies and livelihoods has been identified as crucial for
effective conservation outcomes. The Conservation & Livelihoods Digest serves as a platform to discuss this link in more detail.

In order to present different views, we publish easy-to-read research articles, conference reports, book reviews or commentaries on a quarterly basis.

Irrespective of your stance regarding the role livelihoods play for conservation, if you wish to contribute to The Digest, please send an email to:

We are looking forward to your contributions to stimulate further discussion!
