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.
Our approach involves thorough research and comprehension of the distinct challenges that each community confronts. By doing so, we can identify and establish connections with existing incentive programs that align with their ways of living, address their requirements, and implement initiatives that foster sustainable income generation.
We collaborate closely with local communities to either co-develop or tap into incentive initiatives that promote conservation while concurrently generating income. These incentives play a dual role by not only bolstering financial resources but also by enhancing the community's ability to supervise activities, track progress, and document successful conservation endeavors. Our objective is to harmonize the imperative for livelihood sustenance with the preservation of vital resources, cultural values, and traditional ways of life that hold paramount importance for rural and Indigenous communities.
