EcoLogic understands that in order for communities to focus on conservation, their basic needs must be met. According to the UN, indigenous peoples are estimated to make up only 5% of the worlds population-but comprise 1% of the word's poor and 33% of extreme poverty.
We take the time to research and understand the unique issues that each community faces in order to identify or connect with existing incentive programs that align with their ways of living, address their needs, and creat eactiviteis that are effective, meaningful, and above all generate income sustainability.
We partner with local communties to co-create or tap into incentive programs that encourage conservation and produce income at the same time. Not only do these incentives generate income but also they build the communtiy's capacity to oversess activity, monitor progress and report successfil conservation efforts. At the heart of the programs are a host of tangible benefits for protecting the resources, cultural values, and ways of life most impartant to rual and indigenous communities.
