Abstract: "Many analysts and development practitioners view positively the effectiveness of indigenous strategies in solving development and environmental problems. There are however examples of unrestrained exploitation of resources based on the conviction that certain natural resources are unlimited or beyond human powers to manage. In certain cases such knowledge may have been destroyed by colonialism, or where they exist may be of limited utility for dealing with contemporary resource management problems because of rapid increases in population density and/or transformation of the production system."
