    Abstract: Communities, Livelihoods and Natural Resources presents cases from some of the poorest parts of Asia to illustrate how local innovations in participatory natural resource management can strengthen livelihoods, build capacity for local governance, and spark policy change. The book synthesizes results from a seven-year programme of applied research on community-based . Seasonal and circular migration of labour for employment has become one of the most durable components of the livelihood strategies of people living in rural areas. Migration is not just by the very poor during times of crisis for survival and coping but has increasingly become an accumulative option for the poor and non-poor alike.

    This book sets out the rural livelihoods approach within the larger context of past and present themes in rural development. It adopts diversity as its principal theme and explores the implications of diverse rural livelihoods for ideas about poverty, agriculture, environment, gender and macroeconomic policy.   Stephen Devereux, Rachel Sabates-Wheeler and Richard Longhurst (eds.): Seasonality, rural livelihoods and development Earthscan (Routledge), Oxon, UK. , prelims + pp. Hardback £; Paperback £, ISBN Cited by: 4.
