USAID/EGAT/ Economic Growth Office Technical Briefing, Volume V, #5, December 2008. Impacts of the on-going economic crisis for the NRM sector, bio-diversity, and competition over resources in general are likely to be mixed. However, government budget shortfalls in developing countries and straitened circumstances of households, especially poor households in rural areas, certainly will tend to have a negative impact on NRM. Coupled with ongoing massive losses from destruction of natural capital and ecosystem services to economies, this suggests consideration of increases in economic assistance for integrated NRM-EG-PR activities in developing countries during this period is warranted.
