Environmental Rehabilitation and Livelihood Impact

Since Common Pool Resources (CPR) forms a primary source of livelihood support for the poor, efforts to rehabilitate these could form a viable strategy for livelihood improvement. This paper is an attempt to find out the extent to which Area Enclosure (AE) programme in Ethiopia and JFM in Gujarat have been able to incorporate and address various issues concerning the livelihood security of the local people. If AE and JFM are to contribute significantly for livelihood security, they need to address issues like ensuring equity in participation, increasing biomass productivity and reducing uncertainty over sharing long-term benefits.
