Examining the geographical dimensions of environmental management and conservation activities implemented on landscapes worldwide, Globalization and New Geographies of Conservation collects case studies to explore the interaction of humans and their environment.
The contributors to this volume make four important arguments about the coupling of conservation and globalization. First, it has led to an unprecedented number of spatial arrangements whose environmental management goals and prescribed activities vary along a spectrum from strict biodiversity protection to sustainable utilization. Conservation and globalization are also leading, by necessity, to new scales of environmental management, shifting the spatial patterning of humans and the environment. This interaction results as well in the unprecedented importance of boundaries and borders; transnational border issues threaten global conservation efforts proposed by organizations and institutions that are themselves international. Finally, Globalization and New Geographies of Conservation argues that successful implementation of conservation and management programs must begin at the local level.
