Non-governmental organisations today, as part of civil society, have come to play a prominent role in South Asia in the context of community-based natural resource management (CBNRM). This book examines the theory and practice of NGO-driven CBNRM within the framework of emerging critiques of dominant discourses of development, the micro-politics of decentralisation and the projection of community development. The book breaks new ground by contextualising these critiques using six detailed cases of CBNRM initiatives.

The authors delve into the extent to which CBNRM offers a vision for the future and question what role, if any, could NGOs paly in this. They seek to understand the insights into CBNRM that intervening agencies generate through their work, by examining the outcomes of the interventions and the strategies used to achieve them.

The book concludes that though these CBNRM efforts have made significant contributions to livelihood enhancement, the results gained are limited in the equitable access to benefits, sustainability of resource use, and in terms of democratic decentralisation.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The book attempts to analyse the potential as well as limitations of NGO-driven CBNRM endeavours across agro-climatic regions of South Asia with emphasis on four intrinsically linked normative concerns, namely sustainability, livelihood enhancement, equity and democratic decentralization...consists of well-written chapters based on rigorous synthesis of CBNRM case studies, which will serve as good references for students, researchers and practitioners in the years to come.

-- Current Science

The book is based on thorough research and gives valuable insights into the NGOs-led CBNRM besides listing some innovative experiments by these agencies. It not only gives a critical theoretical perspective within a comparative framework of the diverse forms of works undertaken by these NGOs but also presents a perspective on the future role and aspirations of these NGOs.

-- The Tribune
