Over the past 10 years, the Equator Prize has been awarded to 127 outstanding local and indigenous community efforts to reduce poverty through the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. On its 10-year anniversary, the Equator Initiative has developed detailed case studies on each of these leading grassroots initiatives, and undertaken a comprehensive analysis of the commonalities, trends and lessons across the pool of winners. This book presents the results of this analysis. Its objective is to distill key lessons on successful community-based action in environment and development. The book limits itself to a treatment of twelve key lessons with the greatest relevance for understanding and catalyzing effective ecosystem-based action at the local level. Examples are deployed to illustrate lessons and sub-lessons, and are hyperlinked to full case studies hosted online in the Equator Initiative case study database.
