Freshwater biodiversity and poverty in eastern Africa

Year: 2005 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Red areas where high percentage of children with stunted growth - used as a proxy for poverty - coincide with a high freshwater biodiversity index - a proxy for biodiversity - likely indicate areas in which poor people have no other choice than to unsustainably extract resources, in turn threatening biodiversity.
