Participatory Research in Conservation and Rural Livelihoods : Doing Science Together starts from the understanding that all people create knowledge and that the creation of sustainable livelihoods and of conditions that protect and sustain rural ecosystems are interrelated. Here local experts and professional researchers write independently about the participatory research processes through which they created new knowledge together. They demonstrate that interdependent science can produce more accurate and locally appropriate data, while frankly addressing persisting issues such as unequal power, whose knowledge and what ways of knowing count, whose voice can be heard or appear in print, and other dilemmas of this practice. Conservation scientists and practitioners will both benefit from reading this book. First book to examine community participatory research techniques that focuses on conservation aims Unique book in that it is written from the perspective of participating community volunteers and researching scientists Part of the prestigious Conservation Science and Practice series published in association with the Zoological Society of London " Participatory Research in Conservation and Rural Livelihoods is brilliant, passionate, and inspiring..."
