Managing resources sustainably on the local level is essential for achieving the global goal of sustainable development. The importance of people's participation for sustainable development has recently become increasingly acknowledged yet there is little understanding of the multiple dimensions that such participation involves.
Grassroots Environmental Action questions the viability of traditional management systems. Case studies from Latin America, Asia and Africa focus on areas where local people are vigorous actors in the determination of their own future and that of their environment.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This collection of essays demonstrates powerfully that popular participation is an essential element of resource management in the Third World . . . It is an important collection not only for development specialists, but for anyone interested in the fate of environmental movements."
-"Environmental Politics
." . . a stimulating book containing much information of great value."
-"International Journal of Environmental Studies
..." refreshing ... [W]hat should especially interest ... readers ... is the volume's contention that grassroots organization for environmental action in the so-called Third World is not only a necessary condition for sustainable development but a long enduring institutional mechanism in indigenous societies."
-Adil Najam, MIT
