just a quick question...

the CBD has stated that it 'is committed to persuing market creation for biodiversity as a policy tool for conservation' and i was wondering if there is any evidence as to whether this is a good way to use funds for biodiversity conservation?

or whether community based conservation is a better option?

thanks
Ali

As far as I know, ecotourism often goes hand in hand with community based conservation - the income from ecotourism offering further incentives.

For all it's drawbacks, and there are many, ecotourism does bring in much needed funds and helps to highlight problems, which might otherwise go unnoticed by the wider community.

As long as they walk or cycle to the area, I'm fine with it.
