This Good Practice note reveals the changes brought about by an effective NGO-community partnership, in the landscape of a typical dry-land ecosystem in four districts in Rajasthan (Ajmer, Bundi, Bhilwara and Udaipur) by increasing fodder biomass, grasses, shrubs, trees, water levels and positively impacting on overall livestock productivity.

The note documents how initiatives related to building and strengthening community dialogue processes, creating awareness, identifying local solutions and building technical acumen can facilitate community ownership and equity in common property resource management. It emphasizes how strong institutional arrangements and investments in common property resources can contribute to livelihood improvement of poor livestock keepers.
