Transfrontier Conservation Areas: People Living on the Edge
Jens A. Andersson, Michel de Garine-Wichatitsky, David H.M. Cumming, Vupenyu Dzingirai, Ken E. Giller (eds), Routledge, August 2012, ISBN: 978-1-84971-208-8

This book examines the promises around transfrontier conservation areas in southern Africa – global biodiversity conservation, regional peace and integration and sustainable socioeconomic development of rural communities – and the marginalized people displaced by, or living on the edge of, protected areas. Hence, the studies in this book move from the dream of eco-tourism-fuelled development supporting nature conservation and people towards the local realities facing marginalized people, living adjacent to protected areas in environments often poorly suited to agriculture.  It Crop cultivation, livestock keeping and natural resource harvesting activities along the conservation borders are also specifically addressed.
