Description: "The basic contention of this study is that there are close links between forestry, agriculture, food production and water resource management system. However, the macro policies, relating to the management and use of these resources and compartmentalized approaches to agriculture, forestry, common resources and management of India's major river systems, have led to increasing marginalization of people from the poorer households and casualisation of labour. These processes have destroyed their life support systems and alienated them from their resource base without creating viable, alternative livelihood systems."
