Description - Refugees, Environment and Development by Richard Black
Looks at the complex interrelationships between forced migration, natural resource management and 'sustainable development'. It challenges the growing rhetoric that refugees 'cause' environmental degradation, and that environmental decline is promoting a new wave of 'environmental refugees'. Drawing on examples from Africa, Asia and Latin America, as well as detailed case studies of the Rwandan emergency of 1994-96, and lesser known refugee movements to Guinea and Senegal in West Africa, the book argues against a neo-Malthusian view of the relationship between population, environment and migration. *Practical examples show the relevance and dangers of different environmental management strategies in refugee and post-conflict situations *Based on real cases *Challenges emerging discourse on refugees and environmental degradation *Explores alternative theoretical approaches *Links to broader debates on 'sustainable development' *Challenges the distinctions between 'relief' and 'development'
