Summary

Now in paperback, Green Development analyzes the evolution of the concept of "sustainable development,'' and assesses how this can be applied in the real world. William Adams questions the established understanding of the problems of environment and development, stressing the inadequacy of a narrow view of environmental impacts and a limited response based on traditional conservation measures. He bridges the gap between environmentalism and development studies and argues that the central focus of "green development'' should be on the needs of the poor, and their capacity for control, power, and self-determination.
