Environmental Planning, Policies and Politics in Eastern and Southern Africa
  • M. A. Mohamed Salih


This volume contains the first results of a research programme on National Environmental Action Plans (NEAPs) and National Conservation Strategies (NCSs) conducted by African researchers from Eastern and Southern Africa. The research culminated in a regional conference organized by the Organization for Social Science Research in Eastern and Southern Africa (OSSREA) in April 1997. The volume draws together case studies on Botswana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia financed by the Norwegian Royal Overseas Development Authority (NORAD) and the Swedish Authority for Research Cooperation (SAREC). OSSREA and the African researchers are grateful to NORAD and SAREC for having given them the opportunity to conduct this research, increase inter-regional collaboration and develop home-grown and informed materials for policy, reference and teaching. This volume might have not seen the light of day without Professor Shibru Tedla’s dedication, academic excellence and superb regional coordination of the project.
