CCI Workshop Report: Exploring the linkages between biodiversity and poverty

This workshop discussed biodiversity in the context of poverty alleviation and provided a forum for conservation and development researchers and practitioners to meet and discuss recent and planned work within the field of conservation and poverty interactions.
