Abstract: "Environment, Livelihoods, and Local Institutions provides an overview of decentralized development planning and natural resources management in the region. The report assesses the conditions under which decentralization reforms have promoted secure rural livelihoods and sound natural resource stewardship. The authors find that even the most cautious forms of decentralization they documented led to more appropriate natural resource management decisions than before, as when local authorities increased community consultation within a framework of administrative reform. However, to provide the best chances of improved livelihood security and environmentally sustainable development, decentralization must incorporate a range of innovations."
