Human Population, Biodiversity and Protected Areas: Science and Policy Issues
Edited by Victoria Dompka
with Preface by Dr. Fred Sai
EHN invites you to explore the first in a series of science based publications on interactions between human populations and their environment. Human Population, Biodiversity and Protected Areas: Science and Policy Issues is the product of a meeting held in April 1995. This meeting, attended by representatives from 14 countries, was led by the former chair of the Main Committee of the United Nations International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD), Dr. Fred Sai.
The meeting marked one of the first times that scientists and policy and field staff from the various disciplines met to make recommendations for scientific research on this topic. Proceedings from the meeting--which include overview papers, case studies from Kenya, India, Indonesia, Colombia, Ecuador and the United States, and specific recommendations -- were published in spring 1996. No longer available in hardcopy, the book is now posted on the web.
