Zambia: Community Markets for Conservation (COMACO)
MetadataShow full item record

Although not a very direct incentive scheme (it pays for biodiversity-friendly activities, not conservation results), it is an example of economic incentives that clearly tie wildlife conservation to improved livelihoods.
