If the oil-importing developing countries are to reduce their dependence on costly imports and maintain economic development, they will have to increase domestic energy supplies. But which energy resources are most appropriate in the developing-country context? And can traditional rural energy sources such as firewood and farm wastes be increased without seriously affecting agricultural productivity and environmental quality? In this book, four energy specialists survey the energy problems confronting the developing nations and recommend general approaches---energy strategies---toward making the problems more manageable.Energy Strategies for Developing Nations seeks to illuminate energy problems and strategies for managing them in ways helpful to developing-area planners and to those in industrial countries and international organizations concerned with the interwoven objectives of maintaining economic development and achieving a successful long-term energy transition for the world as a whole.
