Financial and economic values of bushmeat in rural and urban livelihoods in Cameroon: Inputs to the development of public policy

Traditional wildlife hunting has been described mainly from studies of local practices and from the monitoring of urban bushmeat markets. However, the overall value chain connecting hunters to end consumers remains largely unknown, thus preventing any estimate of the actual socio-economic importance of the bushmeat sector. On the basis of existing literature, this talk provides an order of magnitude for the financial and economic benefits of the bushmeat commodity chain in Cameroon. This presentation was given by Guillaume Lescuyer and Robert Nasi of CIFOR at the 53rd Annual Meeting of the Association of Tropical Biology and Conservation.
