Abstract: 

Essays in this publication offer perspectives and strategies to promote both environmental conservation and poverty eradication. Reflecting a range of disciplines, issues, and settings, they cover four interrelated topics: the link between poverty reduction and the environment by encouraging integration of environmental management and development; environmental disasters, their impact on poor people, and the ways to prevent or mitigate their consequences; conservation knowledge and the role of information and education in sustainable development; and legal empowerment of the poor.
