State, Natural Resource Conflicts and Challenges to Governance: Where Do We Go from Here?
N. C. Narayanan
Academic Foundation, 2008 - Business & Economics - 256 pages
Examining the competing interests that lead to conflicts over natural resources, these essays illustrate the larger theoretical and empirical challenges to managing resources and examine the changing role of the post-colonial Indian state. As India acts as designer, provider, and catalyst of development, there are unintended consequences that may trigger conflicts. The case studies illustrate the exclusionary tendencies of projects involving green agriculture, forestry, fisheries, and industrial and water resources development.
