State, Society and the Environment in South Asia

Contemporary thinking favours local participation and local stake-holding under a decentralized, democratic framework as the just and efficient solution to contemporary South Asian environmental dilemmas and crises. In a series of case studies and more extensive audits, a group of mainly Nordic and American authors seek to substantiate, qualify or criticize this formula. Covering both urban and rural environments, the hills and the plains, the book provides insights into the actual management and mismanagement of resources in India and Pakistan. Contents Income Distribution and Environmental Degradation, The State and Local Management in Colonial Irrigation, Oral Histories of Environmental Change in Rajasthan, The Van Gujjars and the Rajaji National Park, Implementing International Regimes in India, Forest Contractors as Intermediaries in Pakistan's Forestry, Tragedy of Collective Action among farmers in South India, International production of Pesticides, Voluntary Organisations in Environmental Service Provision, The Use of Metaphor in Himalayan Resource Management.
