Livelihood alternatives for the unsustainable use of bushmeat
The report describes examples of success stories and lessons learned in Africa, Latin America and the Asia-Pacific region, and offers recommendations for action at the regional and global levels. Key recommendations include: implementation of community wildlife management and other improved wildlife-management approaches, such as game-ranching and hunting tourism; increase of raising of “mini-livestock’”(wild animals such as cane rats raised in small farms); and support of sustainable harvesting of non-timber forest products, such as bee-keeping. The report also recognizes the need to clarify and define land-tenure and access rights, improve monitoring of bushmeat harvesting and trade, and enhance bushmeat-related law enforcement.
