dc.description.abstract "Giao Lac village is a largely Catholic coastal community located in Giao Thuy district of Nam Dinh province, which lies at the mouth of the Red River. The villages land covers an area of about 481 hectares and it population during the period of this study, 2000-2001, was about 9000. Four out of the 5 ponds and all of the intertidal area belong to the District, which, in turn, mandates the village to manage the ponds and the mudflats. The next sections will explore the ways in which policy reforms and other factors have affected the villagers management of mangrove forests in response to national policy reforms in the village. The analysis examines national policy reforms led to rapid changes in local land use systems and in both the ownership and management practices of these mangrove forests at the village level. It also pays explicit attention to the dynamics of social differentiation in the village, in terms of different access to and control over mangrove resources and different management practices by the rich and the poor as well as by men and women. Typhoon environments pose various kinds of natural uncertainties to communities living within them. The various coping strategies used by villagers are described in the paper. The next section discusses the ways in which mangrove forests in Giao Lac have been managed through different periods of time. It highlights the role of different institutions and describes how rights of access to mangrove resources were shaped and have changed over time." en_US
