Abstract:The present IDS Bulletin adds to the growing criticism of current community-based sustainable development initiatives. It questions the assumption of consensus rather than conflict, commonality rather than social and ecological heterogeneity, and institutional harmony and stability rather than diversity and dynamics underlying the appoach. The arguments and illustrations have arisen out of a research project on 'Environmental entitlements: the institutional dynamics of environmental change' undertaken by the Institute of Development Studies Environment Group (Brighton, United Kingdom) in collaboration with research institutions in India, Ghana and South Africa. Six case studies focus on specific local settings relevant to community-based natural resource management in India, Ghana, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
