New in HOORC's Library: International Politics of Bird Conservation
The international politics of bird conservation : biodiversity, regionalism and global governance by Robert Boardman surveys the bird conservation and biodiversity field and reviews international bird protection development prior to 1970. Four chapters discuss transboundary and inter-jurisdictional developments throughout the world --of special interest to the Okavango community is Chapter 6: Development, Disparity, Diversity: North-South Encounters, which discusses the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds in the context of biodiversity goals, the role of NGOs in bird conservation in developing countries and potential conflicts between local economic activities and conservation goals. You can find the book in HOORC's Library.
