    Abstract

    This essay surveys the literature on property rights and natural resource management in developing countries. Focus is on policy relevant discussions concerning collective action, property regimes, local institutions for natural resource management, the evolution of individual property rights to land, land titling by government and poverty-environment linkages. The tendency to draw policy conclusions from simplistic analysis is criticized, and the need for more credible empirical research is highlighted. Copyright 2002 by Blackwell Publishers Ltd
