This publication examines the nature of the linkages between rural poverty and the environment in developing countries, with particular respect to the causes of degradation and approaches to its mitigation. It also considers gaps in knowledge, research needs and policy implications for environmental management and poverty reduction. In so doing, a conceptual framework is developed for more generally guiding understanding of the environment–poverty nexus in rural situations.
