Summary Caught between underdevelopment, poverty and environmental degradation, along with the need for exploiting its natural resources for development, Africa has, during the last two decades, been engaged in a serious effort to integrate environment and development. The nine case studies presented in this book explore the complexity involved in environmental planning and policy in one of the world's poorest regions. The authors articulate an informed debate, with new conclusions and alternative policy recommendations.
