Green Development: Environment and Sustainability in the Third World

Front Cover
Adams analyses the evolution of the concept of `sustainable development' and assesses how this can be applied in the real world. Bridging the gap between ecology and development studies, he argues that the `greeness' of development planning is not to be found in a concern for ecology of the environment, but in control, power and self-determination.
