Not Just Trees in the Ground:The social & economic benefits of community-led conservation projects

Posted on

This report is about how New Zealanders lives improve when they start caring for their environment.

We knew through anecdotes that when communities decided to improve their environment, their lives improved. But we didn't have anything to back this up apart from stories from the projects. They were great stories, but still, just stories. So we commissioned Corydon Consultants to produce a qualitative report to analyse the social and economic benefits of community-led conservation projects. The result is Not Just Trees in the Ground.

It examines three community-led conservation projects that have been part-funded by WWF-New Zealand's Habitat Protection Fund, and documents exactly what the benefits have been to people’s livelihoods and to their social networks.
