Natural Resource Management
Funded by the European Commission, this project aims to use research-generated knowledge to inform and influence policy in the agriculture and rural development sector, particularly in two themes:
- Common property resources(especially water); and
- Promoting sustainable and licit rural livelihoods (especially linked to opium production).
A comprehensive book, tentatively entitled “Understanding the Changing Role of Opium in Rural Livelihoods in Afghanistan,” will be published as part of this project in mid-2014.
