Abstract
  • Numerous development projects are implemented in developing countries to attain economic and ecological development. However, in most cases, the encouraging results observed during the implementation phase terminated with the project period, raising concerns on these projects' sustainability after the project period has ended. This study focuses on this sustainability issue in terms of continued benefit flows of the ecodevelopment project implemented in the Kalakad Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve, India. The ecodevelopment project aimed to attain both economic and ecological development in tandem by involving people in preserving forests. Econometric analysis of the data related to before, at the end, and three years after the project period revealed that the ecodevelopment project was sustainable in terms of reducing the forest dependency and improving the income status of the forest fringe dwellers. Accordingly, this study provided empirical evidence that supports the novel idea that natural common property resources, such as forests, can be preserved by creating financial common property resources, such as village funds, and appropriate site-specific participatory institutions to maintain them.
