Knowledge of how ecosystem services affect the lives of the world’s poor is crucial in management strategies. Such knowledge is essential to making a meaningful impact on food and nutrition security while conserving vital ecosystems. The project aims to build a knowledge base on the intersection between communities and their environment and the relationship between agriculture and forest ecosystems. It will focus on food security and environmental degradation in the lower Caqueta Basin in the Colombian Amazon, the Ucayali region in the Peruvian Amazon, and the Lake Chilwa catchment in Malawi with a goal of delivering evidence to inform policy making.
