Winners & Losers - Investigating the human and ecological impacts of the commercialisation of non-timber forest products (NTFPs)

Summary
Winners and losers in forest product commercialisation is a project led by the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) and funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) as part of their Forestry Research Programme (FRP). The purpose of this project is to examine the economic and social impacts of the commercialisation of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) on different user groups, and on the financial, natural, human, social, and physical capital of the rural poor. Case studies look at the distributional impacts of Marula and Crabwood use.
