About this book

This important book explores the relationship between changes in the environment of the Southern Hemisphere, and the wider economic and political context of North/South relations. The text also looks at whether the agenda of the 1992 Earth Summit can have a practical application in policy terms, and discusses the trade-off between economic goals and mechanisms, and their effects on the environment. A useful guide to this complex issue.
