This is one of a number of PLOW learning resources designed to support
the professional development of DFID livelihoods advisers. Each learning
resource comprises an overview of the subject in a briefing note; key
texts; a summary of recent policy debates; points on where to find other
resources; and a glossary of key terms used in the briefing note. This
briefing note discusses the political economy of natural resource use,
the implications of good and bad NR governance on livelihoods,
governance in the forestry sector, governance in the fisheries sector,
and governance in the non-renewable sectors. Finally common themes and
lessons are highlighted.
This resource was produced by the Programme of Advisory and Support
Services (PASS) in partnership with Livelihoods Connect at the Institute
of Development Studies (IDS). PASS was a Resource Centre for Livelihoods
Advisers that was funded by DFID and managed by HTSPE Limited. The
Resource Centre closed in 2007.
