Notes
  • Purpose – This paper seeks to evaluate different approaches to forest conservation in the areas outside the national parks of south-western Madagascar. Design/​methodology/​approach – Data from a household survey in the area are employed to analyse farmer strategies towards conservation of local forest resources, and present conservation strategies are evaluated in this light. Findings – It is argued that the prospects for future forest conservation in the area are dim at best, and that any policy proposal intended to remedy this situation must as a first priority establish alternative livelihood opportunities for the local population in order to ensure a minimum of incentives for conservation on their behalf. Originality/​value – The paper is of value to all those interested or involved with sustainability issues.
