Definition: Communal resource exploiter

ILO terminology

Communal resource exploiters are workers who hold a "self-employment" job and in this capacity use a natural resource (e.g. land, fishing grounds, hunting and gathering areas) to which there are no individual property rights, but for which their community or the State may have certain management responsibilities.
