This project studied how natural capital functioned as a form of insurance for poor households facing income variability and shocks and whether income from natural resources could be used by poor households to accumulate physical, financial and human capital. Researchers also analyzed how wealth, gender, and market conditions affect household dependence on natural resources. This project was done in collaboration with the SANREM CRSP.
