Managing Common Property in an Age of Globalisation: Zimbabwean Experiences
Weaver Press, 2002 - Business & Economics - 202 pages
A topical collection of essays on common property and resources in Zimbabwe in the light of new challenges posed by globalisation. These challenges are identified as inequitable access to resources, increasing poverty, the degradation of the environment, the supranational efforts to acquire so-called 'global resources' and the concurrent global drive towards democratisation and good governance. The first part presents an overview of local participation in wildlife, fisheries, water, minerals, forestry and land enterprises, setting out common property rights and exploring the empowerment of communal farmers in Zimbabwe. It discusses local experiences; and the realities of the effects of liberalisation in the light of conventional globalist perspectives; and considers in particular water reform. The second part of the book covers the management of trans-boundary natural resources in Zimbabwe and the SADC region; and the impact of global developments on the region. It discusses present international frameworks within which common property resources must be managed; and reflects on the future for common property in Zimbabwe.
