The Southeast Arm of Lake Malawi and its catchment provide
interdependent benefits and livelihoods to users, in
particular the poor, who draw upon on the various resources
(fish, land, water, forests, wildlife, etc.) in the area.
Unfortunately, management of these resources remains
fragmented, resulting in suboptimal social, economic and
ecological outcomes. This book is an attempt to demonstrate
the value of an inter-disciplinary approach in management of
the South East Arm. It is one of seven case studies under
the DARMA (Defragmenting African Resource Management in
Southern Africa) project.
