About this book

Language: English

The present book examines the current laws and management strategies in forest reserves and their effectiveness in conserving dwindling biodiversity resources. Case studies from biosphere regions, marine regions, as well as terrestrial regions by various scholars reflect constraints and threats and argue that a management approach at the landscape level that involve local people's ‘real participation’ with improving livelihoods and well-being might be the best possible alternative for a viable conservation strategy in developing countries like India. This book would be of interest to anthropologists, socioiogists, geographers, environmental scientists, natural resource managers, foresters, human rights activists and above all policy makers and others who wish to preserve the remaining habitats of the country.

These papers were presented at the national conference on 'Potential of Diverse Biodiversity Conservation Approaches and Livelihood Concerns in India', held at Institute of Development Studies, Kolkata, India, during 11-12 March 2011.
