Non-timber forest products provide multiple livelihood benefits. They are mainly harvested from the wild until their value increases and over-harvesting incentivises cultivation. Markets have driven cultivation, but are also frequently negatively associated with maintaining populations of wild species. A forest-to-farm transition can maintain and enhance sustainable livelihoods as well as help maintain genetic resources aided by species specific regulation, customary traditions and support from research and development initiatives.
