CPRs and Rural Poor

This paper attempts to determine the contribution of common property resources to the biomass requirements of the rural people in four villages in Dharwad district of Karnataka. The study finds that overexploitation has resulted in the degradation of the CPRs, which are increasingly unable to meet the needs of the rural communities. Measures to ensure retention, regeneration and sustainable utilisation are needed if a CPR crisis is to be avoided.
