'The book will best serve as a reference volume for those interested either in the thinking on sustainable development in Mozambique or in some of the case-studies. In itself it is less a volume on the actual situation regarding development in Mozambique than it is a book on how Mozambicans envisage the mechanisms by which they will be able to implement a programme of sustainable development and environmental management in years to come.' - Patrick Chabal in International Affairs
