Reviews

...this book is an excellent attempt to provide practical guidelines for 'sustainable resource use'.' Forest Policy and Economics 'Overall the book, which is based on the outcome of DfID-funded projects in Asia and Africa, will be useful to anyone interested in participatory modelling, adaptive collaborative management and action research.' Forest Policy and Economics 'The book will be valuable to non-academics, communities and practitioners involved in natural resources management. It is easy to follow and accessible to all kinds of readers yet well informed and fully referenced. The authors illustrate their arguments with a multiplicity of case studies, frequent use of day-to-day simple stories, popular quotes and extracts of poems.' Forest Policy and Economics '...with the list of useful references, links to internet resources, examples and further information on modelling software along with an accompanying book website (www.cifor.cgiar.org/RealizingFutures), practitioners interested in community participation will find this study a useful resource.' Forest Policy and Economics 'The authors bring a wealth of knowledge and know-how borne of extensive practical experience of resource management in industrial and developing countries to bear on the challenge of how to enable ordinary people to participate effectively in the planning and decision making necessary for their own developmental futures. The book also provides a much-needed source of proven methodology for professional development assistance practicioners who, despite oceans of goodwill towards those they are trying to help, often lack sufficient skills and the tools necessary. This is a book for everyone concerned with natural resources development for people, by people.' Ian Bevege, Principal Advisor ACIAR (retired); advisor to international development and research agencies including CGIAR This book is an excellent attempt to provide practical guidelines for 'sustainable resource use'. The ideas and experiences gained can be used in many cases of community natural resource management. It is easy to follow and accessible to all kinds of readers yet well informed and fully referenced. Valuable to non-academics, communities and practitioners involved in natural resources management.
