Participatory Research in Conservation and Rural Livelihoods: Book

Description:   "Participatory Research in Conservation and Rural Livelihoods starts from the understanding that all people create knowledge and that the   creation of sustainable livelihoods and of conditions that protect and sustain rural ecosystems are interrelated. Interdependent science, that is, science undertaken collaboratively by local and professional   scientists, can create new knowledge to achieve conservation goals.   Local experts and professional researchers demonstrate that   interdependent science can produce more accurate and locally appropriate data. Conservation scientists and practitioners will both benefit from  reading this book."
