Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Los Angeles Sage Publications 2007Description: xv, 362 p.ISBN: 9780761935742.Subject(s): Natural resource - Management | Ecology | Human resource managementDDC classification: 333.70954 Summary: NGOs today, as part of civil society, have come to play a prominent role in South Asia in the context of community-based natural resource management (CBNRM). This book examines the theory and practice of NGO-driven CBNRM within the framework of emerging critiques of dominant discourses of development, the micro-politics of decentralization, and the projection of community development. The book breaks new ground by situating these critiques within six detailed cases of CBNRM initiatives. The book concludes that though these CBNRM efforts have made significant contributions to livelihood enhancement, the results gained are limited in collective action for sustainable and equitable access to benefits, continuing resource use, and in terms of democratic decentralization.
