Community management of the commons in Sagatadi village, India

This good practice illustrates that locally-managed ecosystems are derived from the principles of natural resource conservation. In the Sagatadi village, located towards the south east of Udaipur District in the Rajasthan State of India, community members have set up an integrated system for the management of common pastureland. The community has established control over 75-hectares of pastureland for fodder, with its village-based personnel ensuring security over the land.
