Community, Place, and Conservation Chapter uri icon


  • Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht 2013. This chapter develops an analytical framework for examining the associations of community, place, and conservation. Community is characterized by place-oriented collective actions among a local population, through which residents express a shared sense of identity while engaging in the common concerns of life in the local society. Community-based natural resource management and conservation activities rooted in the assumptions, propositions, and concepts presented in this chapter have the potential to truly enhance the focus and effectiveness of resource management policies and practices at the community level.
