    Abstract

    Bio-rights is an innovative financing mechanism which provides micro-credits for sustainable development to poor communities in return for their active involvement in the protection of the natural environment. Successful community involvement leads to conversion of micro-credits into definite payments, enabling sustainable development and environmental conservation to go hand in hand.
