I just published this book written in collaboration with Cambodian colleagues at the Learning Institute in Phnom Penh. Here is the title and abstract.
Engaging for the Environment. The Contribution of Social Capital to Community-Based Natural Resource Management in Cambodia
Development is not a straight input-output-outcome-impact path, but is more random than that. In this book we look at two elements of this randomness:1) Social capital as a required ingredient in the development recipe, something that, if it is in place can help the process. It belongs to the category of what is needed to take people out of poverty.2) Community-based intervention as how (to try) to do that. The background is the access to and sustainable management of natural resources, which is critical in a country like Cambodia, where the majority of the population lives in rural areas and depends on those resources for their livelihoods.
