Abstract: Across South Asia, many rural people use common land to harvest naturally-growing plants, grow crops and feed their livestock. Increasingly this activity is being commercialized as farmers move to sell the produce they obtain. Despite the importance of this development to village people, its overall effect is uncertain and there are fears that it will damage the environment.
Description: This policy brief is based on SANDEE working paper no. 15-06, "Common property resources as development drivers : a study of a fruit cooperative in Himachal Pradesh, India"
