Kofi Anani examines the community resource bases in the rural areas of Africa as the entry point for understanding the place-based consciousness of organizing livelihood activities in Africa. The goal is to present an argument for concerted efforts to utilize the community resource bases to promote sustainable governance of livelihoods in Africa as a place-based response to the globalization of the rural African world. He presents the place-based organizational principles of community resource bases in contradistinction to governance under globalism, which disrupts the participation processes of the community resource bases. He suggests the technological choices and investment commitments necessary to enhance the participation of the community resource bases in governance of livelihoods which would be a place-based response to globalism.Development (1999) 42, 57–63. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110037
