People’s Commons’ Register, a tool for the management of common pool resources
VikasAnvesh Foundation (VAF) together with Foundation for Ecological Security (FES) is hosting a virtual meeting to discuss the research on “Evolving a methodology to prepare People’s Commons’ Register (PCR)”. Through the Webinar, VAF and FES are keen on sharing the methodology and findings of the research to gain insights from a wider audience. The Webinar is geared towards practitioners, researchers, policymakers and students working in the field of Commons or are interested in the topic.
The common pool resources are natural as well as artificially created resources which are not held by an individual but are in use by a group of people or households. PCR is a comprehensive document that records diverse associations of communities with common pool resources and the rules governing them. The PCR documents aim to not only create visibility for these resources in the villages but also to enable the communities living beside them, in accessing opportunities to secure their rights to use, protect, manage and claim the resource. The research was a pilot study carried out at three locations to evolve a methodology to prepare this register, which will be discussed in the Webinar.
