About this book

Transfrontier conservation is a global concept, which encompasses the protection of biodiversity spanning the borders of two or more countries in ways that support local economic development, international relations and peace. Nowhere is this more relevant but highly debatable than in Africa, which is home to a third of the world's terrestrial biodiversity, while at the same time hosting its poorest nations.

This is one of the first books to account for the emergence of transfrontier conservation in Africa against international experiences in bioregional planning. The roles of the state and local populations are analysed, as well as the ecological, socio-economic and political implications.

Contents

* Perspectives on TFCAs: an introduction; * On the ideological foundations of transfrontier conservation areas; * Peace through ecology? A soft approach to hard realities; * Local initiatives and their regional and global connections; * Southern African Development Community: a regional catalyst; * Silencing community struggles; * The renaissance of the bush: the reinvention of the Cape to Cairo route in contemporary Africa; * Mapping Africa's future; * Postscript: transfrontier parks and the legacy of Rupert.
