This publication illustrates the development of several ecological networks
around the world. It demonstrates the benefits of these networks, not only for
conservation purposes, but also for sustainable development. Although the
concept is relatively new and needs more time to fully crystallise, these examples
indicate that investments in ecological networks yield benefits, not only because
of the biodiversity they conserve but also because of the essential ecological
services they provide to local communities, thereby contributing to poverty alleviation.
