Negotiating Local Governance

Natural Resources Management at the Interface of Communities and the State

Edited by: Irit Eguavoen, Wolfram Laube

The Center for Development Research (ZEF) is an international and interdisciplinary research institute of the University of Bonn, Germany. Local governance of natural resources implies the transfer of administrative duties from the national to the regional level, as well as the day-to-day management by local users. The case studies range from forests in Vietnam and Africa, African wetlands, to water in Afghanistan and land in Malaysia. The book illustrates the dynamics in the local arena under consideration of national administrative and legal re-organization and analyses the dynamics of this conflict-prone interface.
