While species conservation (bio‐diversity) is a global public good, it can be frustrated by populations living at subsistence level whose condition of life precludes such environmental concern. However, this apparent trade‐off between poverty reduction and bio‐diversity conservation is largely false. Moreover, it could be avoided, or at least much reduced, by the introduction of some basic policy reforms relating to land management and conservation.

Keywords:   bio‐diversity, conservation, land management
