About the product

West Africa is a diverse region which has a dominantly rural economy centred on agriculture that traditionally was closely adapted to the dynamic biophysical environment. This publication discusses how indigenous resource management and land use systems adapt to environmental change, with a view to providing researched options for the better management of land resources including species diversity in tropical climates. It also provides a case study of Ghana.
