The Greening of aid : sustainable livelihoods in practice by Czech Conroy( Book )

5 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The development of poor countries has so often meant the export of Northern technology for ambitious schemes designed to make money? the latest giant dam, oil refinery, logging process or pesticide factory. But such 'aid' has frequently been ecologically destructive and its crippling cost has ended up making life immeasurably worse for those it was supposed to help. Using examples from Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, Central and South America, this book shows there are forms of development that allow people to control their own resources while improving their condition and enhancing their environ

Invasive and introduced plants and animals : human perceptions, attitudes, and approaches to management by Ian D Rotherham( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There have been many well-publicized cases of invasive species of plants and animals, often introduced unintentionally but sometimes on purpose, causing widespread ecological havoc. Examples of such alien invasions include pernicious weeds such as Japanese knotweed, an introduced garden ornamental which can grow through concrete, the water hyacinth which has choked tropical waterways, and many introduced animals which have out-competed and displaced local fauna. This book addresses the broader context of invasive and exotic species, in terms of the perceived threats and environmenta

This is the essential book for all students, professionals and academics in SEA and EIA and follow-up worldwide."--Jacket

Sacred natural sites : conserving nature and culture by Bas Verschuuren( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'This book illustrates that sacred natural sites, although often under threat, exist within and outside formally recognised protected areas and heritage sites. Sacred sites may well be some of the last strongholds for building resilient networks of connected landscapes as well as forming important nodes for maintaining a dynamic cultural fabric in the face of global change. The book therefore bridges the gap between approaches to the conservation of cultural and biological diversity. It applies a multidisciplinary approach to recognizing, understanding and managing sacred natural sites. It provides examples of how economic benefits - such as from tourism and fisheries - can be compatible goals with the conservation of sacred biodiversity and thus advancing the welfare of both people and wildlife. It concludes that conservation efforts are likely to be successful only if the cultural and spiritual values are taken into account together with the socio-economic interests of the custodian communities and other relevant stakeholders.'--from books.google.ocm.hk

Environmental policy and household behaviour : sustainability and everyday life( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our behaviour in our own homes - our recycling habits, consumer choices and transport preferences - all have a huge impact on the environment locally and globally. Governments across the world are trying to formulate and implement policies to encourage and enforce more sustainable household actions. Yet so often these policies fail to have the desired effects because of a lack of understanding of the complex interplay of policy and individual behaviour. This book examines this interplay, looking at the role of values, attitudes and constraints in the links between policy and changing behaviour
