Abstract: "Cross-scale horizontal and vertical linkages between common- pool resource institutions have recently received research attention, but are not yet broadly understood. This paper evaluates institutional dynamics in multi-scale forestry projects in the Miskitu Commons of eastern Nicaragua. While all ten co-management initiatives have received international financing, support is asymmetrical between projects. Other vertical and horizontal linkages are heterogeneous as well. This paper analyzes (1) the nesting of multi-scale institutions, (2) mismatches in scale between institutions and forest ecosystems, and (3) natural resource management after simultaneous decentralization and globalization."
