9781844075638: Partnerships for Empowerment: Participatory Research for Community-based Natural Resource Management

Participatory research has emerged as an approach to producing knowledge that is sufficiently grounded in local needs and realities to support community-based natural resource management (CBNRM), and it is often touted as crucial to the sustainable management of forests and other natural resources. This book analyses the current state of the art of participatory research in CBNRM. Its chapters and case studies examine recent experiences in collaborative forest management, harvesting impacts on forest shrubs, watershed restoration in Native American communities, civic environmentalism in an urban neighborhood and other topics. Although the main geographic focus of the book is the United States, the issues raised are synthesized and discussed in the context of recent critiques of participatory research and CBNRM worldwide. The book's purpose is to provide insights and lessons for academics and practitioners involved in CBNRM in many contexts. The issues it covers will be relevant to participatory research and CBNRM practitioners and students the world over.

Review:

'This text presents models of research sorely needed in the literature and for work in communities.' Kathleen Martin, assistant professor of ethnic studies, California Polytechnic State University 'Moving beyond a presentation of orthodoxy and idealized goals of participatory research, this book provides honest and critical accounts of efforts in the US to apply participatory research to natural resource management. The case studies and synthesis chapters provide invaluable lessons to aid better understanding of the complexities and challenges involved in this very important approach to research and resource management.' Jill M. Belsky, professor, Dept of Society and Conservation and director, Bolle Center for People and Forests, University of Montana
