About this book

Programs for creating national parks for biodiversity conservation often run into a vexing dilemma when the intended park areas are inhabited by indigenous populations. These populations are described as damaging the biodiversity, and the simplistic "solution" implemented by many developing countries' governments is their involuntary displacement. The forthcoming study, written by two internationally known social scientists, demystifies both this rhetoric and "rationale" behind this common practice. The study's authors apply a new theoretical model of poverty risks to the analysis of empirical findings from 9 parks in 6 countries of the Congo basin. They show how forced displacements do not preserve people's livelihood but destroy it. The authors argue for policy changes, in favour of balanced approaches.
