Abstract

Environmental practitioners open a window onto environmental challenges in diverse African contexts. Non-specialists and scholars can see how Malawian officials and community leaders, new to multi-level governance, take up the challenge of environmental management in villages and districts; Ugandan small-scale farmers in partnership with NGOs try to produce sustainably for household and international markets, and government-civil society partnerships in South Africa introduce a focus on environment and human rights in the national school curriculum. Other contributions from South Africa, Angola, Lesotho, Zambia and Zimbabwe cover industry reporting, environmental management, research, philosophy, the media, conservation, the seeking out of indigenous knowledge. Case studies and reviews of progress since the 1992 Earth Summit are included.
