Book description

Social and economic systems worldwide are changing rapidly. These changes are accompanied by an increasing demand for natural resources, including land, water, minerals, energy sources, food and timber. Today's foremost challenge lies in finding the tools to address the complexity of these interrelated trends, and in implementing strategies to balance environmental and socioeconomic needs. This volume contributes to this search by presenting original research, topical case studies and emerging best practice from a range of key stakeholders to examine the interface between ape conservation and industrial agriculture. In assessing the drivers behind agricultural expansion and land investments, it sheds light on governance challenges and legal frameworks that shape land use. Intended for policy makers, industry experts, decision makers, academics, researchers and NGOs, it is designed to inform debate, practice and policy to help reconcile the goals of industrial agriculture with those of ape conservation and welfare, and social and economic development. This title is also available as Open Access via Cambridge Books Online.

Reviews

Review of the series:‘Truly groundbreaking … Through keen analysis and vivid research, the [State of the Apes] series considers the survival of the world's ape species in light of both long-standing and newly emerging threats, such as mineral extraction, energy exploration, agricultural expansion and land conversion - forces that will continue to shape not only the future of wild apes, but also of all remaining blocks of wild habitat and the extraordinary biodiversity they contain. By examining the complexity of development forces across range states, [this series] offers an informed and realistic assessment of the prospects for ape conservation, as well as outlining the potential of policies that may spell the difference between destruction and survival of these extraordinary beings.'
