Natural Resource Management and Institutional Change

Synopsis

Examining the effects of recent changes in the management of natural resources and supporting services, the authors analyze the rights and responsibilities of resource users in developing countries in Asia, Latin America and Africa.

Excerpt

This book represents the culmination of a three year programme of research conducted within the Natural Resources Group at the Overseas Development Institute, London. The Rural Resources and Poverty Research Programme took place between 1993-6. It examined the changing role of the state and the changing rights and responsibilities of individual users of natural resources within the new climate of reform. It embraced the areas of agricultural services (notably agricultural research and extension), forestry, water resources management and pastoral resources management, and extended to three continents (Asia, Africa and Latin America). The Rural Resources and Poverty Research Programme comprised a number of different, but interlinked, activities including literature reviews, case studies, international networking and workshops. This book draws on all these sources and supplements them with the findings of further relevant research undertaken by ODI during this period, to present conclusions of broad relevance to developing countries.
