KIT dossier on natural resource management

The Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) has published a new dossier on natural resource management and land tenure.

KIT states  <quote> “This dossier deals with the management of natural resources and the governance of land, which determine access to and control of assets that play a key role in rural livelihoods and often also in power relations. Due to population growth, depletion of resources, poor land potential and climate change, pressure on land and natural resources is growing, resulting in competing claims. The emergence of local governments in rural areas is changing the institutions that influence access, control and management, and thus the sustainable use of these resources” <unquote>

The resources types that are available for consultation in the dossier are comprised of three types: audio-visual, documents and websites.

Some of the research areas that the dossier focuses  include:  local governance, international land deals, best practices, rural community involvement and access to land.

Access the dossier here.
