About this book

Rather than fostering economic growth, pouring millions of dollars into Third World economies often accelerates environmental degradation, and threatens long-term economic viability. Through covering topics such as agroecology, the role of applied ecology in designing dams and teaching applied ecology in developing countries, this book demonstrates how applying well-established scientific principles of ecology to development programs can foster economic growth without sacrificing health and environmental quality.
