About this book

This book investigates how environmental qualities can be managed through social capacity development in developing countries. To this end, the book proposes a concept of Social Capacity Assessment (SCA) and presents empirical tools for the SCA which can be used for the analysis in developing countries. This book also presents applications of the SCA for other problems under scrutiny in developing countries, including poverty reduction, infrastructure management and protection of endangered species.
