Rural common property resources: a growing crisis

Rural common property resources: a growing crisis

Gatekeeper Series Sustainable Agriculture Programme, International Institute for Environment and Development ( 24): 16pp.

Common property resources (CPRs) are being fast depleted in the developing world. This paper documents micro-level evidence on the contribution of CPRs to standards of living among low income groups, while drawing on data from India. The environmental degradation that has resulted from the mismanagement of natural resources has led to steep declines in acreage and agricultural production.
