Rainforest Relations by Melissa Leach

Book Description

With environmental change and conservation in West Africa's tropical rainforests becoming topics of increasing political and academic interest, this book brings a fresh set of perspectives to the debate - those of the forest dwellers themselves. Based on her detailed field research in the Mende communities around Gola North Forest reserve, and surveying the recent debates and literature concerning forest conservations and current analytical approaches to gender and the environment, Melissa Leach examines the importance of rainforest resources to the local economy and social relations and shows that neither an understanding of forest use and change, nor adequate conservation policies can be achieved without a concern for gender.

Green Grabbing: A New Appropriation of Nature by Melissa Leach Green Grabbing: A New Appropriation of Nature, Paperback (November 2014)

This study draws together 17 cases from African, Asian and Latin American settings to ask: To what extent and in what ways do 'green grabs' constitute new forms of appropriation of nature? How and when do appropriations on the ground emerge out of circulations of green capital. Are the ecologies, landscapes and livelihoods gaining or losing?
