This is one of 280 summaries describing key outputs from the projects
run by DFID's 10-year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy
Summary for Project titles: R7973: Policy implications of Common Pool
Resources (CPR) knowledge in India, Zimbabwe and Tanzania and R8280:
Understanding stakeholder perceptions in participatory forest management
In India, Tanzania and Zimbabwe, participatory forest management
projects have conducted studies to help us better understand how and in
what way the poor depend on shared resources. The results of this
research can be used to improve policy and prevent future conflicts
arising over shared resources. The projects involved produced a range of
useful outputs. Examples include conflict management strategies that
were developed in partnership with local target institutions and an
analytical framework to help decision makers recognise and understand
the implications of possible policy options. The outputs produced by
these projects are now being used by a range of in-country partners.
