Proximate Relationship of Indigenous Communities with Natural Common Property Resources in Arunachal Pradesh of India: An Empirical Study of Tawang District

R.K. Mandal

Abstract:
The study examined the dependency and to document the existing state of the indigenous community of Arunachal Pradesh, the 13th geographically largest State of India on local natural Common Property Resources (CPRs) such as village pasture, community forest, waste land, common thrashing grounds, watershed drainages, village ponds, tanks, rivers, rivulets and river bed, etc. for their livelihood. The decline of CPRs as shown by field evidence is closely associated with the depletion of this social capital. Despite a rapid decline in productivity, common property resources constitute an important component of community assets of India. Occupational structure in the state varying from primitive and indigenous agricultural practices with an inbuilt knowledge system initiates traditional occupational engagements in activities like hunting and gathering, shifting cultivation (slash and burn method) and collection of minor forest produce as well as earning from their inbuilt management system of natural resources.
