Written by environmental practitioners from across the region, the Monograph is a window onto environmental challenges in a diversity of African contexts. These contexts include Malawian officials and community leaders, new to multi-level governance, taking up the challenge of environmental management in villages and districts; Ugandan small-scale farmers in partnership with NGOs trying to produce sustainably for the household and the international market; and government-civil society partnerships in South Africa, where the political transformation of the education system introduced a focus on environment and human rights in the national school curriculum.

Other contributions from South Africa, Angola, Lesotho, Zambia and Zimbabwe, open onto yet more contexts of environmental practice: industry reporting, environmental management, research, philosophy, the media, conservation, the seeking out of indigenous knowledge.

This collection of papers provides non-specialists and scholars alike with:

  • Case studies and reviews of progress since the 1992 Earth Summit
  • A window on the scope of responses to environmental issues in Africa
  • Insight into contextual realities in Southern Africa and beyond (contributions from Angola, Lesotho, Malawi, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Uganda)
  • Illumination of the complex challenges we face - practical, political, epistemological - as we attempt to engage one of the biggest social transformations of our time 
  • Application of social theory that reveals the need for re-thinking assumptions about the advancement and horizons of this change called, for the time being, 'sustainable development'.
