About this book

Discusses the paradox facing development strategists in the 1990s. Intense rural poverty cannot be alleviated as long as the people are not allowed to take advantage of the natural resources around them. At the same time environmental degradation cannot be reversed as long as poverty forces people to destroy their fragile surroundings in search of food, water and shelter.
