A comparative analysis of two contrasting strategies in the implementation of Community Natural Resource Management (CNRM) programmes in Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh
This book examines whether the introduction of CNRM schemes in rural India made an impact on poverty alleviation. These programmes were implemented in various phases and manners in different states over the last two decades and their comparative performance as well as successes and failures are analysed. Inspired by the Millennial Development Goals established by the United Nations in 2000, the book focuses on participatory irrigation management, watershed development, joint forest management, and inland fishing cooperatives.
This book is indispensable to scholars of development studies, environmental studies, community resource management, and sociology.
