Abstract:

The livelihoods of the rural poor are nested within ecological communities. The poor rely heavily on their immediate natural environment for subsistence and suffer high morbidity and mortality due to infectious diseases. We show how the dynamics of poverty can be modeled, focusing on four exemplar drivers: infectious diseases, renewable resources, land - use change and population growth.

Interactions between these ecological processes and economics can create reinforcing
