Whose Eden? An overview of community approaches to wildlife management
Report/paper, 124 pages
Challenges the traditional practice of separating the management and conservation of wildlife from the livelihood of local communities. It shows there is a growing recognition that a community's rights to ownership and tenure of wildlife resources is integral to sustainable wildlife management. Wildlife management will only be sustainable ecologically, socially and economically if it can be made sufficiently attractive to local communities for them to adopt the practice as a long-term livelihodd strategy.
