About this book

This volume examines the dynamics of natural resource governance processes through a range of comparative case studies across east and southern Africa, in an effort to better understand the factors that account for the different outcomes of reform efforts in different contexts. These cases examine issues such as land tenure, tourism development, wildlife conservation and participatory forest management, and are drawn from the work of both academics and field practitioners from across the region.

Media reviews
'A timely, large-scale exposition about the natural and human forces that shape the CCE. The authors expertly indicate opportunities to maintain benefits and mitigate environmental damage in the region.' Donald M. McLeod, University of Wyoming 'The natural world is fast deteriorating from human activities. What can be done? A lot, as it turns out ... Prato and Fagre apply the latest science to one of the largest areas of wilderness in the lower 48 states and Canada. If you are a land manager, hunter, recreationist, academic, or environmentalist - if you love and care about the outdoors - you need this book.' Ben Gadd, Author of Handbook of the Canadian Rockies 'A definitive work ... By examining issues at regional to subregional scales, this volume informs resource management across geographic and institutional boundaries. This is good science with applications to both management and policy.' David L. Peterson, U.S. Forest Service
