This book has critiqued natural resource management from a gendered perspective. Almost all of the contributors are concerned with people's changing livelihoods and resource base. They examine the overlapping strands that cut across the issue of engendering community rights in natural resource management. The volume tries to grasp the complexity of the interlinkages between gender and natural resources.
