Do conservation efforts aimed at slowing deforestation and improving local wellbeing work - and how do we know?
Professor Julia Jones, Bangor University

Wednesday 17 October 2018, 17:00-18:00
Large Seminar Room, Level 1, The David Attenborough Building.

This talk will draw on a Randomised Control Trial analysis of the impact (on deforestation and water quality) of a Payment for Ecosystem Services scheme in Bolivia, quasi experimental analyses of the impact (on deforestation and economic wellbeing) of Community Forest Management outcomes at the national scale in Madagascar, and a participatory impact evaluation of the impact (on subjective wellbeing) of Protected Aras and CFM in Madagascar. I will highlight the pros and cons of the various approaches to impact evaluation.

This talk is part of the CCI Conservation Seminars series. For more information, see: http://talks.cam.ac.uk/show/index/79090
