About this book
This book aims to discuss environmental and health management and policy issues in Sub-Saharan Africa and present ways to address specific environmental problems of the people and ecosystems in general.
The book contains selected refereed papers on food security, environment and health, environmental management and policy development and social responsibility that were submitted to or presented at the First International Conference on Environmental Research, Technology and Policy held in Accra, Ghana, July 17-19, 2007.
The primary goal of the conference was to provide a forum for policy makers, scientists, practitioners, and civil society advocates to discuss grass-root environmental issues. To assess efforts by government machinery and identify what communities and corporate entities can do as a social responsibility to mainstream environmental protection for sustainable development.
