Product Description

Review

'This study, led by world renowned scholars and scientists, sets new standards for efforts to understand rural life, poverty dynamics, human-environment interactions, and development outcomes. A key output from the ambitious 'Poverty Environment Network (PEN)', this brilliant collection of analyses will have lasting impact on how scholars and students of poverty and environment conduct research and collect data, manage interdisciplinary collaborative work, and present policy-shaping results.' Arun Agrawal, University of Michigan, USA

'This volume provides an invaluable guide to the relationship between poverty, environment and how people benefit from natural resources. It presents practical advice on how to undertake rigorous field-based investigations and meticulously covers each stage in the research process.' Professor Katrina Brown, University of East Anglia, UK

'Household income surveys traditionally underestimate how much rural families depend on nature to earn their living. This book shows how researchers can do it right and why everyone should care.' David Kaimowitz, Director, Natural Resources and Sustainable Development, Ford Foundation

'This book provides a solid methodological foundation for designing and implementing household and village surveys to quantify rural livelihoods, with an emphasis on environmental income and reliance in developing countries.' Bruce Campbell, Director, Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) of the CGIAR

Provides very clear guidance and information for every step of planning, designing and executing social surveys. Although it pays special attention to livelihoods and dependence of communities on natural products, it provides foundation applicable for other environment/conservation/development -related social studies. An excellent textbook.
