People-Centred Sustainable Development Policies and Projects

  • Project from: 1999 to 2001


This project commissioned work on finding out how the concepts of sustainable development and people-centred conservation have been applied in practice by development agencies. It looked at how people-centred approaches to environmental protection have fared, and what experience was gained in relation to a variety of topics, including decentralization; water management; urban planning; community-based natural resource management; and sustainable agriculture. The project’s papers draw on research and case studies from India, Indonesia, Mexico, the Philippines, South Africa, sub-Saharan Africa and Thailand.
