Title Sharing Power. A global guide to collaborative management of natural resources
Contributor International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED)
Author Ashish Kothari, Grazia Borrini-Feyerabend, M. Taghi Farvar, Michel Pimbert, Yves Renard
Content The collaborative or ‘co-management’ of natural resources – whether between states and local communities or amongst and within communities themselves – is a process of collective understanding and actions by local communities and other social actors. The process brings about negotiated agreements on management roles, rights and responsibilities, making explicit the conditions and institutions of sound decentralized governance. At heart, co-management is about sharing power.
