This case study examines the results of a pioneering project, implemented by the RSCN, which has attempted to sustain biodiversity conservation in Jordan’s protected areas through the development of community based, market-driven income generation and tourism programmes. It describes how income generation schemes can be used to help regulate damaging resource-use practices and promote more positive attitudes towards conservation initiatives. It also draws attention to the benefits of institutional strengthening for enabling community based approaches to be effectively implemented and sustained.
