Linking poverty and the environment: participatory community-based approaches, games of imperfect information and the Convention on Biological Diversity

Carlos Potiara Castro


This paper discusses the linkages between the agendas of poverty alleviation and of environmental protection through initiatives adopting participatory community-based approaches. These actions intend to strengthen and increase the effectiveness of policies focusing local and traditional populations that are in a situation of vulnerability. The challenges they face are presented here in the form of games with the purpose to show models explaining them. And finally, a participatory instrument, raised in the Convention on Biological Diversity and based on customary law, is brought to the reader.
