Community management: an integrated approach toward sustainable livelihoods

Community management: an integrated approach toward sustainable livelihoods The paper draws on a case study of a conservation project in the Annapurna Himal in northwest Nepal. Through focusing on environmental, economic and social challenges of the region, the paper highlights the need for a holistic interdisciplinary approach to environmental conservation and sustainable development in mountain regions. Supported by primary research in the Annapurna, the paper builds on the argument that only when traditional community resource management is recognized and integrated into the development model can conservation be realized. The paper concludes with recommendations for a participatory evolution towards conservation and sustainable development with the goal of securing sustainable livelihoods on steep slopes. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Interdisciplinary Environmental Review Inderscience Publishers

The paper draws on a case study of a conservation project in the Annapurna Himal in northwest Nepal. Through focusing on environmental, economic and social challenges of the region, the paper highlights the need for a holistic interdisciplinary approach to environmental conservation and sustainable development in mountain regions. Supported by primary research in the Annapurna, the paper builds on the argument that only when traditional community resource management is recognized and integrated into the development model can conservation be realized. The paper concludes with recommendations for a participatory evolution towards conservation and sustainable development with the goal of securing sustainable livelihoods on steep slopes.
