Abstract:The Institute for Global Dialogue commissioned four papers on natural resources governance in mining, forestry, fisheries, and transfrontier parks in southern Africa. Each of the papers identifies the problem of access to resources and the need to move towards more sustainable consumption and production patterns. In the first paper, David van Wyk draws on I. Wallerstein's world-system theory in explaining the relationship between core and periphery States in the mineral sector. Through the case study of South Africa he highlights the effect of the extractive industries in shaping core-periphery relations in the domestic context and the impact this has on the development of provinces. In the second paper Moenieba Isaacs and Horácio Gervásio disaggregate the structural challenges facing artisanal and small-scale fishers in Mozambique and South Africa. They highlight the challenges caused by overexploitation, the shortfall in skills development and diversification, limited technical resources, climate change, and competition with industrial fleets. The third paper by Cori Ham and Paxie W. Chirwa considers the role of forests in the livelihoods of communities and economic development in southern Africa. In the final paper, Emmanel Kisiangani examines the cross-border nature of natural resource governance through Transboundary Natural Resource Management in so-called 'Peace Parks'.
