This paper explores the nexus between instituions and uncertainty in the context of natural resource management. It argues that conventional understandings of institutions fails to focus on how institutions deal with the ever increasing forms of uncertainty that affect rural livelihoods. The paper describes three types of uncertainty: ecological, livelihood and knowledge uncertainty. The paper calls for a radical re-thinking of conventional forms of viewing resources, legal systems and property regimes. This requires new forms of governance, inclusionary decision-making arenas, addressing issues of power, and overhauling the sharp distinctin between local and global, as well as formal and informal processes.
