Indigenous Peoples and the Collaborative Stewardship of Nature: Knowledge Binds and Institutional Conflicts
Anne Ross, Kathleen Pickering Sherman, Jeffrey G. Snodgrass, Henry D. Delcore, and Richard Sherman
Left Coast Press, 2011 | ISBN: 978-1-59874-578-8 (paperback)

Involving indigenous peoples and traditional knowledge into natural resource management produces more equitable and successful outcomes. Unfortunately, the authors argue, most methods fail to produce truly equal partnerships. This book offers a global overview of the theoretical, methodological and practical dimensions of co-management. The authors critically evaluate the range of management options that claim to have integrated indigenous peoples and knowledge, and then outline an innovative, alternative model of co-management, the Indigenous Stewardship Model, further providing detailed case studies and concrete details for application in a variety of contexts.
