Balancing Rocks: Environment and Development in Zimbabwe
Nordic Africa Institute, 1996 - Business & Economics - 208 pages
Balancing Rocks tackles the environment issues affecting Zimbabwe their consequences and solutions, using a sectoral approach thus contributing to a more accurate perception of the diverse and complex challenges which lie ahead. The Future of Zimbabwe is guided by these underpinnings and there is need for a paradigm that multiplies people's choices and at the same time being environment friendly. This book is a useful tool for all those interested in a discussion that goes beyond narrow academic or political agendas, and understand that environment and development are fragile "balancing rocks". It is the first empirical attempt to assess Zimbabwe's environmental linkages to development on a sectoral basis and with the intention of reviewing policy for the future.
