The book provides practitioners with models of “good practice” in participatory, community-based resource management and demonstrates how site-based research contributes to broader learning in the field of natural resource management and policy. In addition to its uses for practitioners, this book will also be a valuable resource for graduate students in development tudies and for applied researchers in government or private research organizations interested in development programs and policy analysis.

Read what some prominent reviewers have to say:
