000014646 520__ $$aThe world is in the midst of a biodiversity crisis. For those in the  North, that can seem abstract; for the rural poor in the  developing  world, it&rsquo;s all too real. Their absolute dependence on the bounty of  forests, deserts and coasts means &lsquo;biodiversity loss&rsquo; can mean losing  all: food, fuel, building material, medicine, forage, livelihoods and  culture. <br /><br />The good news is that it can work the other way. Poor  communities, as long-term stewards of the South&rsquo;s natural riches, are  steeped in profound knowledge about them. As this pocketbook shows,  working with them can reverse the downward spiral of environmental  degradation. By banking on biodiversity, we can protect our natural  legacy while tackling poverty locally, nationally and globally.
