See Elinor Ostrom, Governing the Commons: The Evolution of Institutions for Collective Action ( Cambridge, 1990) Michael Redclift and Colin Sage, Strategies for Sustainable Development: Local Agendas for the Southern Hemisphere ( Chichester, 1994). Alan R. Emery notes that indigeneons peoples still occupy 20 percent of the world's land mass. "Their use of the land," he says, "is both for subsistence and as a part of their cultural roots and sense of identity." By contrast, Western societies view natural resources as wasted if not extracted and put to use. See Alan R. Emery , "The Participation of Indigenous Peoples and Their Knowledge in Environmental Assessment and Development Planning," a report from the Centre for Traditional Knowledge ( December 1996), 2.
