This chapter examines the impact of economic and social environment changes on collective action in village societies with respect to the management of common property resources (CPRs). It is divided into two sections. The first section draws lessons from the centralized approach to environmental management followed by governments in the Third World. In the second section, it is argued that village arrangements for solving problems of access to, and/or conservation of local level CPRs have evolved under the joint impact of several factors.

Keywords:   collective action, traditional rural societies, village societies, environmental management, Third World, problem solving, common property resource, conservation, resource management
