From a number of perspectives on the current debate around managing common property resources, this volume discusses a variety of topics, including forest rights, sacred groves, deforestation at high altitudes, e-governance issues, concerns over industrialization, and agro forestry produce as well as a host of other issues that underline forestry and its implication to economic growth in India. Arguing that the challenge lies in enabling new institutions and strengthening traditional ones that have worked well, this book offers a better understanding of the concepts governing property rights and demonstrates how they are central to the manner in which markets develop in today's universe of inclusive growth.
