This book makes an important contribution to the on-going discussions on environmental governance, in particular by providing consideration of concepts that are critical to our understanding of how societies respond to environmental challenges. Case studies present the experiences of people and communities as they address environmental issues and demonstrate a number of different governance models. It invites all those engaged in environmental issues to begin a renewed dialogue on the issue of governance for sustainability in order to seek real solutions on the ground.
