Descriptif
This thesis aims to contribute to the understanding of mechanisms and strategies farmers use in order to secure access to natural resources, taking into account the impact policies have on the dynamic of access strategies and security by adding another dimension to farmer decisions. The research will focus on the access mechanisms farmers create and what institutional arrangements have been made in order to secure access. The outline of this report is as follows. Chapter two develops the research questions followed by a theoretical framework to identify access mechanisms, institutional arrangements and legal pluralism concerning access to natural resources. Then, the methodology for data collection and reporting is discussed. Chapter three describes the state-institutional environment by providing historical information on agriculture in India. The chapter focuses on groundwater exploitation and land policies in Gujarat including historical developments, management strategies and laws and policies constructed by the Federal Government of India. This is followed by two chapters devoted to the description of the research sites. Chapter four provides detailed information on the research villages, including physical, political, social and economical topics. Data concerning land and water allocation in the villages, which mainly focuses on the institutional arrangements, is shown in Chapter five. Chapter six is dedicated to a further analysis of the reallocation of property. Finally, Chapter seven provides an overview of the main findings of this research, the drawing of conclusions and presents a discussion and consideration for further research
