The most valuable ecosystems and many of the most remote and beautiful areas of the world are home to peoples who have depended on the land and managed its resources sustainably - often for millennia. Faced with the pressures of development, governments and conservation agencies look for ways of protecting such areas, often overlooking the rights of the local inhabitants. Yet it is possible to do both, and in fact the natural environment can often only be preserved when the livelihoods of local people are also secured.
This beautifully illustrated book gives vivid and fascinating first-hand accounts of more than thirty cases from every part of the world where the interests of nature and the claims and needs of local people have been met simultaneously.
"..accessible, well edited and beautifully illustrated. No one with an interest in the survival of parks and reserves can afford to ignore it" - George Monbiot - New Scientist
