About the Book

Driven by exponential population growth and the effects of globalization, haphazard development across Africa threatens the continent’s natural resources, as housing and infrastructure encroach on ecological systems. In its updated second edition, this book documents through case studies the destruction of natural habitats and wildlife and presents collaborative approaches to sustainable, self-sufficient community development. The author describes in detail the conservation of ecological systems, especially in the context of land use and poaching, and highlights the important roles played by women and indigenous people.
