"The person with the idea for the campsite is a hero." Institutional arrangements and livelihood change regarding community-owned tourism enterprises in Namibia (Case studies from Caprivi and Kavango Regions)
The Namibian CBNRM programme is based on the premise that communities will receive direct benefits through the protection and sustainable use of common property natural resources. Workshop data reveals that people responsible for the establishment and management of the COT enterprises are making the link between benefits from the enterprises and improved natural resource management. This paper focuses on understanding the institutional aspects of the enterprises and how these institutions have shaped the impact of the enterprises on people's livelihoods.
