Winners & Losers
Investigating the human and ecological impacts of the commercialisation of
non-timber forest products (NTFPs)
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), project R7795.
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.
The Winners and Losers project team is made up of a number of international researchers and practitioners with extensive knowledge and experience in NTFP use and commercialisation.
