This book brings together several systems-level approaches to the consideration of the interaction of livelihood choices, natural resource management and participatory action research on sustainable development. By focusing on these approaches to community change, the volume hopes to encourage readers to consider how they might adopt methods such as Sustainable Livelihoods Approach (SLA), Community Capitals Framework (CCF) and Participatory Action Research (PAR) in their own research, practice and teaching. Thus, this volume will engage readers in reflection about the importance of systems-level approaches that address poverty from the perspective of the poor, natural resource management that maintains the resource for future generations, and the engagement of local people in designing and implementing, and thus owning, strategies that address equity as well as economic security and the environment. This book was originally published as a special issue of Community Development.

Throughout the countryside of the developed world, communities, planners, and politicians are hoping to solve their economic, employment and servicing problems by stimulating the growth of tourism. But tourism is complex and competitive, needing sophisticated skills in planning, marketing, and delivery. It also brings a range of economic, environmental and social problems in its wake. This book examines both the theory and practice of rural tourism. Written by leading European practitioners and thinkers in the field, it outlines how to both conceptualise and implement rural tourism in a sustainable way. A range of case studies illustrates techniques which have been employed to help rural areas develop tourism without tears. Topics covered include: definitions and systems; tourism and sustainable rural development; marketing and promotion; the role of local development groups; cultural sustainability; and tourism strategy writing. Area studies cover rural regions in Austria, England, France, Ireland and Sweden. The book, based in an international summer school on rural tourism development held in University College Galway in Ireland, will interest a wide range of readers, including those involved in tourism research and teaching, tourism professionals and rural development planners, together with students reading tourism, economics, geography, planning and sociology.

India, due to its geographical position, climate and geological setting is one of the most disaster prone countries of the world and has been experiencing natural disasters every year. Though whole of the country is more or less affected by common disasters, the impact of these disasters on rural population due to its physical, poor socio-economic and specific socio-cultural condition is comparatively more and long lasting. If we analyse the Indian rural society in the context of vulnerability, it is found to be much more vulnerable to natural disasters in comparison to its urban counterpart. The book, as indicated by its name aims to apprise the readers about the impact of natural disasters on rural society and its management. It contains seven chapters with an introduction giving details about disasters, types disaster management cycle and recent trend in dealing disasters. After discussing the disaster trend at world level and India, the book attempts to critically analyse the vulnerability of the country to various forms of disasters. The book gives detail of different factors influencing the vulnerability of different factors influencing the vulnerability of rural society to the natural calamities and problems and shortcomings of prevailing disaster management system. After critically analysing the rural disaster management situation, the book concludes that it is the sustainable rural development approach that can mitigate the disasters in rural India with a long-term perspective. The book suggests the role of PRIs, as implementing agency in managing disaster, in an effective manner in rural areas. The disaster management planning at village level and utility of management tools in disaster management planning is discussed in detail in the last chapter of the book.
