Article/Chapter Title:Population Growth and the Decline of Common Property Resources in Rajasthan, India
Journal Title:Population and Development Review
Author(s):Jodha, N S
Date of Publication:1985
Annotation:Based on evidence gathered from six villages in the districts of Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, and Nagaur from the 1950s to 1980s, Jodha argues that the effects of the mid-century land reforms, combined with commercialization, population pressure, and the introduction of tractors, may ultimately strip the arid region of Rajasthan of its natural endowments and advantages. In response, he suggests that protecting and developing common property resources would make it possible to correlate economic activities with regional natural resources for the mutual benefit of both the land and society.
