Abstract
"Common Pool Resource (CPR) Management among the Ila, Balundwe-Tonga and Batwa in the Kafue Flats is an example of how the State has intervened with locally developed institutions for the management of fisheries, wildlife and pasture and how it has created open access situations. Local stakeholders would like to re-establish old rules or new regulations but outsiders consider that, as Zambians, they are allowed by the state to get access under formal laws. But the State is absent when it comes to the enforcement of these laws."
