Poverty-Environmental Degradation Nexus
Poverty-Environmental Degradation Nexus is written with a view to establish the relationship between poverty and environmental degradation especially in the context of developing countries. Although the link between poverty and environmental degradation already became an issue of discussion, research trying to grasp this link achieved indecisive results. This book therefore empirically established that the existence of poverty-environment nexus implies that one problem is a significant determinant of the other. Hence, reducing poverty may be an effective way to reduce environmental damage, or vice versa.Joint solutions may be highly cost effective policy options when the two problems are simultaneously determined. This should be very useful for policy makers, natural resource management experts, agriculturist, farmers and students of agriculture generally.
