Description :
Authors examine the uses of mountain commons in two villages in the manali area, Kulu Valley, Himachal Pradesh, India. Land settlement of 1886 provided local people with well defined resource rights and some local control over two resource areas from 2,000 to 4,000 m in elevation. Authors identify 10 categories of land use based on gender, caste, and ethnicity. Diverse social interests are articulated through mahila mandals (women's organizations) and mimbers (groups of village elders). - (SLD)
