2 This research has received funding from the European Community’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/ ) under grant agreement No Protecting biodiversity - what’s in it for us? Living near biodiversity-rich areas in Vietnam, Costa Rica, India and South Africa Professor Geoffrey D. Gooch Linköping University and University of Dundee Green Week 1st-4th June 2010 LiveDiverse

3 The challenge is to improve Livelihoods for local people while at the same time protecting Biodiversity Can it be done?

28 What are the central issues of the Livelihoods and Biodiversity Interface? Bio-physical conditions Socio-economic conditions Cultural and spiritual conditions Technology – science, engineering, management The communication of information – knowledge Public and stakeholder participation Perceptions, values, norms and attitudes Legal systems Institutions Combining nature, science, politics and society

29 Interface Stakeholders Science Policy

30 INTERFACES IN LIVELIHOODS AND BIODIVERSITY MANAGEMENT Interface of what? Interface through what? Interface for what reason? Interface for what outcome?

31 1. The creation of a multidisciplinary knowledge base and vulnerability mapping. 2. Construction of way/methodology to identify public perceptions, beliefs, values towards biodiversity and sustainable livelihoods. 3. Identification and mapping of the areas vulnerable –Natural science criteria –Socio-economic, legal and political –Cultural-spiritual perspective How We work in LiveDiverse

32 LiveDiverse 4. The construction of a GIS vulnerability data base 5. The identification of the biodiversity and sustainable livelihoods ‘hot-spots –a high risk (according to the natural science criteria) –and a low capability to manage those risks (according to the socio-economic, cultural-spiritual and political criteria). 6. The use of the knowledge gained in these processes to construct biodiversity and livelihood scenarios.

33 LiveDiverse 7. The formulation of policy recommendations through analyses of existing and possible strategies

35 Combined GIS Mapping Combined Scenarios Policy recommendations and project proposals
