Determinants of Success of Collective Action on Local Commons Peter Lang AG

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The growing recognition of the potential of local institutions to assure the sustainability of natural resources has motivated the devolution of the management and responsibility over local commons from the state to local user groups. In Ghana, farmer management of irrigation systems has become an important component of policies for irrigation development and reform. While numerous examples of successful local irrigation management exist in different parts of the world, there are several cases of failure that sometimes lead to a complete system breakdown. Using a dataset from community managed irrigation schemes in northern Ghana, this study examines the reasons why communities differ in terms of economic, distributional and environmental outcomes of the devolution program. Among others, the study finds the resistance of landlords to a land redistribution policy to have a detrimental effect on the success of collective action for local management of the irrigation schemes. The ability of the user groups to tackle local asymmetries for promoting equity and forming appropriate institutions to motivate cooperative behavior is essential for achieving sustainable local management of the irrigation schemes.

Legal Pluralism and Development - 2854300601

Legal Pluralism and Development Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Previous efforts at legal development have focused almost exclusively on state legal systems, many of which have shown little improvement over time. Recently, organizations engaged in legal development activities have begun to pay greater attention to the implications of local, informal, indigenous, religious and village courts or tribunals, which often are more efficacious than state legal institutions, especially in rural communities. Legal pluralism is the term applied to these situations because these institutions exist alongside official state legal systems, usually in a complex or uncertain relationship. Although academics, especially legal anthropologists and sociologists, have discussed legal pluralism for decades, their work has not been consulted in the development context. This book brings together, in a single volume, contributions from academics and practitioners to explore the implications of legal pluralism for legal development.

If Pakistan is to preserve all that is good about its country - the generosity and hospitality of its people, the dynamism of its youth - it must face the deterioration of its social and political institutions. Sidestepping easy headlines to identify Pakistan's true dangers, this volume revisits the major turning points and trends of Pakistani history over the past six decades, focusing on the increasing entrenchment of Pakistan's army in its political and economic arenas; the complex role of Islam in public life; the tensions between central and local identities and democratic impulses; and the effect of geopolitical influences on domestic policy and development. While Ian Talbot's study centres on Pakistan's many failures - the collapse of stable governance, the drop in positive political and economic development, and, most of all, the unrealised goal of securing a separate Muslim state - his book unequivocally affirms the country's potential for a positive reawakening. These failures were not preordained, Talbot argues, and such a fatalistic reading does not respect the complexity of historical events, individual actors, and the state's own rich resources. While he acknowledges grave crises still lie ahead for Pakistan, Talbot's sensitive historical approach makes it clear that favourable opportunities still remain for Pakistan, in which the state has a chance to reclaim its priorities and institutions and re-establish political and economic sustainability.

Redefining Diversity and Dynamics of Natural Resources Management in Asia, Volume 2 ELSEVIER SCIENCE

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Redefining Diversity and Dynamics of Natural Resources Management in Southeast Asia, Volumes 1-4 brings together scientific research and policy issues across various topographical areas in Asia to provide a comprehensive overview of the issues facing the region. Upland Natural Resources and Social Ecological Systems in Northern Vietnam, Volume 2, provides chapters on natural resource management in northern Vietnam tied together by the concept that participatory local involvement is needed in all aspects of natural resource management. The volume examines planning for climate change, managing forestland, alleviating food shortages, living with biodiversity, and assessing the development projects and policies being implemented. Without the involvement of local communities, households, and ultimately individual people, the needed action will not be effectively taken. Upland Natural Resources and Social Ecological Systems in Northern Vietnam, Volume 2, goes beyond just Northern Vietnam to address the issue of transboundary natural resource managementâ

International Law and the Arctic Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Climate change and rising oil prices have thrust the Arctic to the top of the foreign policy agenda and raised difficult issues of sovereignty, security and environmental protection. Improved access for shipping and resource development is leading to new international rules on safety, pollution prevention and emergency response. Around the Arctic, maritime boundary disputes are being negotiated and resolved, and new international institutions, such as the Arctic Council, are mediating deep-rooted tensions between Russia and NATO and between nation states and indigenous peoples. International Law and the Arctic explains these developments and reveals a strong trend towards international cooperation and law-making. It thus contradicts the widespread misconception that the Arctic is an unregulated zone of potential conflict.

Radical Bureaucracy Shards Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Drawing on the author's qualifications and career experiences in teaching, local government, and senior management in political environments, it is not partisan, but shows how a lifetime in the public service at the political interface can radicalize opposition to the State among indigenous, law-abiding professionals, such as this particular "Jobsworth". Neither a textbook nor a work of personality politics, the book aims to be a thought- provoking polemic for intelligent laypersons, students, and professionals in both the public and private sectors, argued from scientific, rational, and philosophy standpoints. It is essentially pessimistic about the human condition and the likely outcomes of politicians' even altruistic efforts to ameliorate it, citing as it does a plethora of barriers and complexities sadly not usually over-considered during political life .It is critical of all institutions, defeatist about how we might escape from ideologies, and points up the many weaknesses of even the most systematic attempts to make social progress. It is corrosive on the subject of the political class, whilst also concluding that public attitudes and behaviour contribute in no small measure to our getting the very many quite mediocre politicians we probably deserve. The book is lively, and likely to polarise opinion, both winning converts and engendering opposition. It seeks for the truth, which is often less than comforting. In so doing it draws on many an illustration from the current political scene. Much of the discussion is topical, and all is germane to building the (perhaps mythical) good society. This has to be founded on massive restructuring to eradicate the terrible and inhumane weaknesses of contemporary capitalism, as well as the development of a genuine democratic society, where a reformed public sector could play a respected and morally significant role. Its relevance is likely to endure for many years to come.

Agroforestry Research Developments Nova Science Publishers Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Today, agroforestry ranks high among the significant land-management initiatives that have undertaken the world over the past few decades. Indeed, it is now recognized as an important approach to ensuring food security and rebuilding resilient rural environments. Recent studies have shown that more than one billion hectares of agricultural land have more than 10% tree cover. Of this, 160 million hectares have more than 50% tree cover. Agricultural ecosystems can be further improved through agroforestry to ensure environmental restoration, greater farm productivity, and realization of ecological services, including climate change mitigation and adaptation for improved rural livelihood. Now, agroforestry is considered synonymous to climate smart agriculture and a remedy for many modern environmental challenges, and acts as a mitigating process for climate change. Consequently, the knowledge base of agroforestry is being expanded at a rapid rate as illustrated by the increasing number and quality of scientific publications of various forms on different aspects of agroforestry. Making full and efficient use of this upsurge in scientific agroforestry is both a challenge and an opportunity to the scientific community, particularly in the scenario of climate change. In order to help prepare themselves better for facing the challenges and seizing the opportunity, agroforestry scientists need access to synthesized information on multi-dimensional aspects of scientific agroforestry. It is believed that widespread scaling-up of agroforestry innovations during the next decade will greatly facilitate the success of global commitments and conventions such as the UN Millennium Development Goals, Convention on Biological Diversity, Framework on Climate Change, and the Convention to Combat Desertification. This book will be useful for engaging more stakeholders, including students, foresters, farmers, local communities, indigenous people, civil society institutions, the media, private sectors, scientists (working in the fields of Agroforestry, Forestry, Life Sciences, Animal Husbandry Dairy, Social Science, Food Science and Environmental Sciences), policymakers, leaders, and the public.

Organizational Theory: The importance of Stakeholders in Project Management GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, Atlantic International University, language: English, abstract: Contemporary project management recognizes the importance of stakeholder involvement in project initiation, planning and execution. This is particularly so as stakeholder s interests, involvement and expectations all influence project execution as well as its impact. Project management is the planning, organizing, directing and controlling of resources for a relatively short-term objective that has been established to complete specific goals and objectives . Stakeholders refers to any individuals, groups, or institutions who have a vested interest in the natural resources of the project area and who potentially will be affected by project activities and have something to gain or lose if conditions change or stay the same . Thus in the context of project management, stakeholders are all those who need to be considered in achieving project goals and whose participation and support are crucial to its success. Stakeholders can be internal to the project or external. The major stakeholders in project management are the project managers, project team, sponsors of the project, customers or project beneficiaries, government, local communities among others. In project management, stakeholders are identified through stakeholder analysis. Stakeholder analysis identifies all primary and secondary stakeholders who have a vested interest in the issues with which the project or policy is concerned . The main aims of stakeholder analysis are to identify the interests of stakeholders and potential areas of conflict as well as ways to reduce negative impacts on vulnerable and disadvantaged groups . The importance of stakeholders is in project management is evident at different levels. Firstly, it gives the concerned people say over how projects may affect their lives. Secondly, it is essential for project sustainability. Thirdly, it generates a sense of ownership if initiated early in the development process. Fourthly, it builds capacity and enhances responsibility. Fifthly, it provides opportunities for learning for both the project team and stakeholders themselves. This paper thus examines the importance of stakeholders in project management informed by the view that all the important decisions during initiation, planning and execution stages of the project are made by these stakeholders.
