Discussion Meeting - Wildlife Wood: Timber and Bushmeat

The decline of forest-dwelling species in West and Central Africa is both a major conservation concern and a livelihoods concern for people who rely on bushmeat.

A range of management interventions has been suggested to reduce the shooting and trapping of wildlife, but the effectiveness of different management options depends on the habitat being considered: farm-fallow areas, or forests.
This meeting will focus on production forests that supply timber to African, Asian and European markets. New logging roads open areas to hunters, rapidly increasing bushmeat consumption. Prohibiting hunting in these forests is problematic as local people have long relied on this resource and have a livelihood need for bushmeat, and many mammal species are not protected in these areas. The focus will be on the political context for reducing international trade in illegal timber, timber management systems and marketing to support certification, and forest certification systems that support wildlife management.
