Natural Resources Management publications from Practical Action Publishing

Comanagement of Natural Resources
This book draws on more than a decade of research across the developing world and presents case studies from Bhutan, Cambodia, China, Ecuador, Lebanon, and Vietnam.

Living with Wildlife
This Working Paper presents detailed analysis of two case studies and then addresses the question of whether the problematic situations which emerge can be addressed.

Cultivating Biodiversity
The book draws on the experience of demonstration sites that are the farmers' own enterprises, combining superior production along with enhancement of biological diversity.

Communities, Livelihoods, and Natural Resources
This book presents cases from some of the poorest parts of Asia to illustrate how local innovations in participatory natural resource management can strengthen livelihoods, build capacity for local governance, and spark policy change.

Climate Change and Threatened Communities
It explores human interactions in environments ranging from subarctic tundra to equatorial rain forest, from oceanic lagoons to inland mountains.

Livelihood from Fishing
This book is the result of reflection, meetings and discussions since 1984 when the FAO organized the World Conference on Fisheries Management and Development and is also the fruit of close ties with fishworker organizations in both North and South.

Sailing Against the Wind
This book aims to convey the atmosphere of the diverse unspoiled shipping on the inland water routes of Bangladesh, and so aims to preserve the rich cultural heritage that the traditional country boats represent in Bangladesh.

Productive Water Points in Dryland Areas
This book shows how research in Southern Africa has shed light on why conventional wells and boreholes fail, on the potential of the groundwater resource to support production through improved siting and selection of more appropriate well designs, and on the positive impacts and some problems that can emerge at productive water points.
