Notes to broadcasters on forest products:

This story provides an example of how farmers can earn an income from forest products without endangering the forest itself. In fact, many livelihood activities can provide communities with an economic incentive to conserve woodlands. The following stories from past issues of FRW offer other examples:

“Butterfly farming takes wing” (FRW#17, April 2008)
“Conservations groups save trees, earn profits” (FRW#16, March 2008)

For more examples, see the Script of the Week: Forest communities generate income while conserving the environment.
