Are alternative livelihood projects effective at delivering conservation results

  1. 1. 1 Barbara Trapani 26/06/14Francesca Booker 06/08/2015 Are alternative livelihood projects effective at delivering conservation results? Francesca Booker @BookerFrancesca IIED Associate International Institute for Environment and Development francesca.booker@iied.org
  2. 2. 2 Barbara Trapani 26/06/14Francesca Booker 06/08/2015 What is an alternative livelihood? Define alternative livelihoods as an: 1. Alternative Occupation 2. Alternative Resource 3. Alternative Method
  3. 3. 3 Barbara Trapani 26/06/14Francesca Booker 06/08/2015 What do we know? • Alternative livelihood projects are used in a variety of contexts to achieve conservation objectives • Concern that the approach is not working… E.g. FFI (2013) ‘Why NOT alternative livelihoods’ • BUT alternative livelihood interventions continue to be used… E.g. CARPE 2010 – 2020 includes an objective to ‘expand alternative livelihood opportunities to rural communities’
  4. 4. 4 Barbara Trapani 26/06/14Francesca Booker 06/08/2015 Why now? • IUCN WCC 2012 passed Resolution 111 calling for ‘a critical review of the biodiversity benefits of alternative livelihood projects’ • Our response: Systematic map - provides an overview of the existing evidence Systematic review - analyses and syntheses the existing evidence • Partners include IIED, CIFOR, & ZSL
  5. 5. 5 Barbara Trapani 26/06/14Francesca Booker 06/08/2015 What we did… • Extensive literature search & stakeholder engagement • Searches were conducted in English & French • Captured over 20,000 documents • Inclusion criteria used to screen titles, abstracts and full texts • For more detail see our Protocol available at: http://www.environmentalevidencejournal.org/
  6. 6. 6 Barbara Trapani 26/06/14Francesca Booker 06/08/2015 Systematic map – a description of the evidence 106 projects included in the systematic map (97 documents) • 69% alternative occupation, 7% alternative resource, 8% alternative method • 18% standalone initiatives • 8% had a contractual agreement to secure conservation outcomes
  7. 7. 7 Barbara Trapani 26/06/14Francesca Booker 06/08/2015 Systematic map – a description of the evidence
  8. 8. 8 Barbara Trapani 26/06/14Francesca Booker 06/08/2015 Systematic map – a description of the evidence
  9. 9. 9 Barbara Trapani 26/06/14Francesca Booker 06/08/2015 Systematic review – a synthesis of the evidence • 106 projects included in the systematic map (97 documents) • 21 projects included in the systematic review (20 documents) • No measure of effectiveness for 66 of the 106 projects
  10. 10. 10 Barbara Trapani 26/06/14Francesca Booker 06/08/2015 Systematic review – a synthesis of the evidence • 9 alternative livelihood projects assessed as having a ‘positive outcome’ E.g. Homestays, Guatemala • 9 alternative livelihood projects assessed as having a ‘neutral outcome’ E.g. Seaweed farming, Philippines • 3 alternative livelihood projects assessed as having a ‘negative outcome’ E.g. Micro-credit, Indonesia
  11. 11. 11 Barbara Trapani 26/06/14Francesca Booker 06/08/2015 So, are alternative livelihoods projects effective for conservation? • Insufficient evidence to answer the question! • Important shortfalls in the evidence base…
  12. 12. 12 Barbara Trapani 26/06/14Francesca Booker 06/08/2015 Implications… ... for policy and management • We need Theories of Change • What’s the biodiversity outcome? • Encourage reporting of positive AND negative experiences … for research • Capture project implementers’ experience • Third party evaluations
