This source book in which the "training and process" approach is paramount, maintains a holistic strategy. It brings together technical tools, sociological skills and field practice. It is hoped that those who study and possibly use this book will be able to enhance their capacity: to promote the process of increased participation in co-management of natural resources; to guide and facilitate such processes; and to plan and implement capacity building measures in natural resource management.
This sourcebook is designed for those who plan to introduce and promote participation in the context of natural resource management, particularly in pastoral areas of the Middle East. In general, it is assumed that those using this source book will have already had some training and exposure to participatory approaches. Those with no prior experience to such approaches may still find it useful.
