VDM Publishing House, September 2010, Pages: 124
Conflict between livelihood security and conservation needs resolution for any sustainable development.This book suggests a model wherein social and economic capital augment ecological capital. The model is a result of salient inputs from the interviews with political leaders, bureaucrats, forest officers, media persons,academicians actively engaged in policy making. Experiences from existing models practised all around the world have been assimilated to arrive at a viable conservation model.The model certainly has potential of application in other developing countrries with widening gap between reducing forest cover and growing demand of local people for forest produce. The thesis evoked keen interest in the participants when this was presented in the International Conference at Maxwell School at Syracuse University, NewYork State[USA] during October 2004.Synergy between the conservation and livelihhod security is the sole hope for any sustainable development in developing nations.
