Tropical rain forest

£19.99

Product description

Paperback book with illustrated covers in a good condition. Slight scuffing to edges, shelf marking and crease marks to two corners. Pages in a generally good condition, there is however coloured highlighter applied to the text on approximately 20 pages. With tables and black and white photographs.

The international perspective for this book is the unprecedented level of concern over deforestation, recognized by the meeting of world leaders at the 1992 Earth Summit, in Rio do Janeiro, and culminating in the appointment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Forests (IPF), under the auspices of the UN Commission on Sustainable Development. The wide range of issues covered by the authors in this volume reflects the breadth of the international debate, from national policies and activist campaigning, through economic and social objectives, to the sustainable management of forest and soil resources. Since the conservation campaigns of the 1980s, the focus of international concern has widened from tropical rain forests to all forest formations, in all regions, with increased recognition of global values and common responsibilities.
