About this book

&i;`A landmark in the development of an African perspective on environmental policy. Its thoughtful analysis makes a compelling case for constitutional reform to balance the needs of private property owners. The book is relevant not only in the developing world but also in those developed countries such as the US where conservation efforts are hampered by the lack of an adequate constitutional basis.'&o; Dr John W Bruce, Land Tenure Center, Wisconsin-Madison University.
