Wildlife law can contribute to the legal empowerment of the poor to varying extents by granting local and indigenous communities clear and secure rights to conserve and use sustainably wildlife and benefit from it, particularly through community-based wildlife management schemes; recognizing and supporting sustainable traditional use; and requiring participatory wildlife management planning and impact assessment processes. This publication systematically explores the conditions, approaches and options in drafting national wildlife laws that ensure environmental sustainability and empower the poor.
