Securing Community Tenure over Common Lands
This Good Practice challenges the misconception that community managed commons are more degraded than privatised ones.
Working in the most arid areas of Madhya Pradesh, Tree Grower Cooperative Societies secure community tenure over common land, build local social capital though multi-stakeholder village institutions to fulfil the Community based Natural Resource Management dream. This leads to a significant increase in biomass, vegetative cover, fodder and water availability that provides a boost to livestock development and establishes the importance of village institutions in Common Property Resource management.
