Locked Horns… is a collection of selected cases and review papers which portray the tensions, trials and tribulations that affect communities struggling to manage local natural resources in a manner that satisfies the needs and aspirations of different stakeholders. Sometimes the tensions remain subdued for extended periods of time while at other times they erupt into confrontations. On the other hand they could also lead to deadlocks, spiraling of tension and enmity, violence, litigation and second generation conflicts. Practitioners and institution builders at the grassroots therefore need to build their capacities in the art of analysing and dealing with conflicts. However, the real value of conflicts often lies in what they signify for policies and programmes that have either strayed from their espoused goals or fallen short of the needs and aspirations of the people.
