Socioeconomic information is critical for effective marine and terrestrial management as community attitudes towards and uses of, associated resources have serious implications on the biophysical health of these systems. The management of these resources also has equally serious implications for the socioeconomic health of the community.
Effective management of biodiversity and natural resources requires a balance between sustainable use, resource protection, and conservation with their community’s need for food security, livelihoods, and the fair use of resources. A close link exists between how a community uses resources and the socioeconomic context of the community.
