The state of vulnerability and powerlessness in making meaningful choices about livelihood development defines poverty; this state is complemented by restricted tangible assets for livelihood development and goods for consumption (Fisher et al., 2008). Herewith, we meet what the World Bank (2001) refers to as three dimension of poverty: (i) powerlessness, (ii) vulnerability, and (iii) lack of assets. In the current chapter we explore the three dimensions of poverty as a means to disentangle the relationship between community biodiversity management (CBM) and community resilience.
