Commercialisation of non-timber forest products: a reality check

By Brian Belcher and Kathrin Schreckenberg

Abstract

This article challenges the pervasive view that commercialisation of non-timber forest products can (easily) achieve ecosystem and species conservation as well as improving livelihoods. Following a brief review of who and what is involved, it focuses on the main ecological and livelihood risks of unconsidered promotion of NTFP commercialisation, drawing on a wide range of case studies from around the world, and concludes with some recommendations for useful interventions
