PARTICIPATORY TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT (PTD) APPROACH IN NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

BACKGROUND
Economic development depends critically on natural resources that are fragile and being rapidly degraded; links between poverty, economic incentives, institutional weaknesses in government, and destruction of natural resources more visible than in other least developed countries; despite $4.5 billion of aid for projects affecting natural resources, resource degradation continues, and country's scope for improving living standards diminishes (World Bank report, 2008).

INTRODUCTION
participation of local people at various stages during development of technology;
modern attempt to revive quite established, traditional and indigenous cultural and institutional mechanisms for managing and conserving the natural environment (Croll and Parkin 1992; Berkes et al. 1998).
