(Download PDF/Epub) Biodiversity, Sustainability And Human Communities: Protecting Beyond The Protected By Tim O’Riordan, Susanne Stoll-Kleemann
The rate at which the planet is losing its biodiversity, the implications of this loss, and possible remedies are the subject of much public and academic debate. This book shows how biodiversity can be protected through the involvement of local communities. The authors suggest that strict protection of threatened areas must be combined with involvement by local economies and societies. The book examines the experience of regions around the world where this approach has been tried, drawing upon the insights of political scientists, economists and social psychologists.
