Community-based natural resource management in the Southern Africa region: an annotated bibliography and general overview of literature, 1996–2004
MetadataShow full item record
This bibliography is aimed at collating information relating to community-based natural resource management (CBNRM) in the Southern African region across different sectors and themes. It was primarily compiled to offer material support to researchers participating in the ‘Breaking New Ground’ – People Centred Approaches to Natural Resource Management and Development Programme – a joint venture of the Centre for Applied Social Sciences, University of Zimbabwe (CASS) and the Programme for Land and Agrarian Studies, University of the Western Cape (PLAAS). It is also aimed at providing a resource to practitioners, policy- and decision-makers and researchers in southern Africa. The bibliography includes references to a variety of previously undocumented sources of information. The focus of this work, whilst including annotations on wildlife, moves beyond this traditional view of CBNRM to include other sectors. It embraces second or third generation issues ranging from the contribution of CBNRM to rural livelihoods and resource condition, to investigating policy issues around CBNRM and issues of power and authority over land and natural resources.
