Living Between Juniper and Palm

Ben Campbell

Oxford University Press

The chapter examines debates about the fragility of Himalayan ecology, and the theories that have been advanced to explain and remedy environmental degradation. It reviews accounts of the introduction of environmental protection in Nepal and the impact of regulations on local patterns of resource use, which have tended to make local people hostile to the institutions designed for nature protection. Phenomenological, discursive, and political–ecological developments in approaches to human–environmental relations are described that will be drawn upon in interpreting the ethnography of Tamang environmental relations.

Keywords:   theory of Himalayan environmental degradation, national parks, verticality, conservation, resource use
