Summary expansion
This book looks at nine case studies from the Asia-Pacific region where communities are adopting innovative methods to address complex and unpredictable environmental problems. The solutions often require new cultures, institutions, and governance structures, as well as dramatic changes in peoples perceptions, attitudes, roles, and behaviors. The authors examine environmental initiatives within the region, including natural resource management, eco-tourism, forest management, solid waste management, and water management. The book offers a rich balance of perspectives from experts in community development, urban planning, and local environmental management, as well as community leaders, local government officials, journalists, non-governmental organization representatives, and academics
