Natural resources for pro-poor economic growth

Year: 2008 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
To alleviate rural poverty, one way is to sustainably use the natural resources available to the people and the communities. By supporting and expanding fisheries, small-scale mining, forestry, ecosystem services and other similar activities and making it easier to run a businesses out of these, economic growth can be gained. This illustration symbolizes this in the form of a tree, with different natural resources as leaves and the trunk being made up of a bar code, as a key for economic markets.
