Abstract: "The World Bank's concept of its development mission has deepened in recent years with greater weight given to poverty eradication and environmental stewardship. Natural resource management has thus taken its place alongside agriculture as a major rural development concern. New insights have emerged, which include a more integrated picture of rural livelihoods, and the understanding that they depend to a significant extent on forest and animal products extracted from beyond the farm. There is also growing appreciation of the viability of production systems that make extensive but sustainable use of fragile resources, such as those of pastoralists."
