Description

This study explores the relationships among tropical biodiversity conservation, economic development and local cultures within the context of two provinces in the Central African nation of Cameroon. It examines the attitudes toward environmental conservation and economic development of three groups - rural Africans, urban Africans and urban Westerners - that directly impact Cameroon's environment and its environmental and development efforts.
