Abstract
"This paper examines children and young peoples use of common pool forest resources in the middle Himalayas of India. It focuses on children and young people as hitherto ignored, but important resource users, and explores differences in age and gender in determining resource use. The paper also seeks to expand our conception of how forest resources are used. I draw on three case studies to show how children and young people construct the forest in varied ways."
