About the product

Over the years, there has been gradual realization that environmental protection and its rational management are in fact a precondition to development. On the issue of rational management of the environment and natural resources, this publication looks at ten countries inside the African region - Burkina Faso, Gabon, Guinea, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Sao Tome Et Principe, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda. Along with these studies, the publication also addresses such issues as: the impact of industries on the environment, law and sustainable industrial development, cleaner production technologies and industrialization; and the role of 'Bankers' in the promotion of compliance with environmental law by industries.
