Summary
Traditional conservation approaches have focused on separating people from nature, most obviously through the establishment of formal protected areas such as national parks. But the real challenge is to reconcile conservation and the sustainable use of environmental resources with people and all the problems they bring. This collection of real-life case studies from around the Asia-Pacific draws on the experiences of a wide range of people who are finding ways to meet that challenge in our increasingly crowded world
