Environment-Poverty linkages in West Africa: Household dependence on renewable natural resources in Central Burkina Faso

By Mariève Pouliot


Objective

“To estimate the contribution of renewable natural resources to rural household income in central Burkina Faso”


Study area


National Park

155,000 ha

Study area

  • Semi-arid tropical climate

  • Mostly open/fragmented dry forests with parklands and savannah in between

  • National park Kaboré-Tambi

    • Strategy of pure conservation (no access rights for population)

    • Forest products harvested illegally

  • 9 villages / 323 households sampled

Conclusions

  • Forest and other environmental income = 26%

    • Poorer households are significantly more dependent on environment than richer households

  • Fuelwood, shea, fodder and thatching grasses most important products

    • Account for 70% of all forest and other env income

  • Little seasonal variation in environmental income

    • Important source of cash during lean period (gap filling)
