Introduction
In today’s global economy, communities that previously had been subsistence-based are now subject to external market forces that are changing their societies and threatening their natural environments and ways of life. In many instances, these communities do not have the tools or information necessary to partake in the new economic landscape. Al Harris has created a model that can help such communities connect to the global economy in a way that also improves natural resource management.
