About this book

A Handbook of Environmental Management presents a range of case studies that demonstrate the complementary application of different social science techniques in combination with ecology-based management thinking to the natural environment. Contemporary environmental management is characterised by an increasing awareness of the need for interdisciplinary approaches. This requires managers to effectively combine insights from both the natural and social sciences in order to ensure sustainable outcomes.

This eloquent and unique Handbook provides a broad overview, complimented by specific case studies and techniques that are used in environmental management from the local level to international environmental regimes. With contributions from leading authorities in the field, this innovative volume provides a valuable teaching aid for students, as well as an insightful and practical reference tool for environmental practitioners with no background in the social sciences.

Media reviews
'This timely Handbook, offers fresh insights into a critical period of our planet's environmental history. The excellent choice of scholars, from various corners of environmental science, convincingly demonstrate using many differing environmental management examples of how the apparent controversy between maintaining environmental quality, and improving people's livelihoods can be solved in practice. In each case, the answer is found in a creative interaction and combination of perspectives and techniques from ecology and social science resulting in truly - and therefore effective - environmental management solutions, to urgent environmental problems.' - Leo de Haan, African Studies Centre Leiden, The Netherlands
