This file presents articles written by Mary Rodeghier and Clara Jamart, based on « Sharing Power: Learning by Doing in Co-management of Natural Resources throughout the World ».
This collective work was published in 2004 by Grazia Borrini-Feyerabend, Michel Pimbert, M.Taghi Farvar, Ashish Kothari, Yves Renard et al. It offers an overall reflection on the shared management of natural resources and tools needed.
Our intention is to provide syntheses that make main elements of this publication available and understandable for all.
This file contains four major articles that highlight the main ideas of the book. Each of these articles is then illustrated with additional information that specifies the analysis and provides concrete examples of tools for co-management.
