Conflict and Cooperation in Participatory Natural Resource Management (Global Issues)

Conflict and Cooperation in Participatory Natural Resource Management (Global Issues) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Over the past 100 years, there has been a steady process by which natural resources have been increasingly managed by centralized institutions. Governments and other national agencies have argued that this promotes efficiency and equity. Recently this orthodoxy has been challenged by experiments that show how centralized management tends to fail. Global, national and local goals are more likely to be met, at lower cost and with other benefits (such as promoting better democratic institutions) by involving local populations in collaborative management agreements. This volume, based on detailed case studies from around the world, subjects some of these experiments to critical study, and suggests limits to the participative approach as well as ways it can be improved and made suitable for new contexts.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 227-240) and index.
