Abstract
"Saline and arid lands are considered to be unproductive or low productive area and coupled with inhospitable climate, the common property resources of land, water and wind are threatened for neglect by the human society. The development of such area is a necessity, particularly in developing countries, which also have the problems of excess population. Utilizing these resources for creating utilizable common property resources is a need which cannot be overlooked.

"A case study of Kachchh district in the western part of India is presented with a view to show that efforts are done in this direction of land utilization, and utilization of ground-water, wind energy, etc. The efforts are only a beginning and much remains to be done. The paper in short, focuses on the problems of creation of resources for such a society."
