Common Pool Resources and Fisheries Management (1) Key Sheet No. 1
The purpose of these Key Sheets (Nos 1-4) is to ensure the effective dissemination of the findings of a research project funded under the DFID Fisheries Management Science Programme (FMSP) entitled 'Incorporating Common Pool Resource (CPR) Issues into Fisheries Management in Developing Countries: Key Lessons and Best Practice' (No. R8467). The main target audience are policy-makers and their advisers throughout the world with a responsibility for CPR management, especially fisheries.
In this first Key Sheet, the relationship between people and CPR will be explored using fisheries as a case study (termed 'CPR (Fisheries)' hereon), with particular reference to livelihoods and poverty.
