  • State versus Participation: Natural Resources Management in Europe

    The participation of the public, local communities, indigenous peoples, and various other stakeholders in natural resources policymaking, planning and/or management has been increasingly promoted in international and national policies. This book analyses and discusses how participation does - or does not - occur in the management of forest and ...

  • Designing Pleasurable Products: An Introduction to the New Human Factors

    Human factors considerations are increasingly being incorporated into the product design process. Users are seen more as being important factors in the overall look and usability of products than just as passive users. We are now treated as cognitive and physical components of the person/product system. The author, who is one of the leading lights ...

  • Diversity not Adversity: Sustaining Livelihoods with Biodiversity

    The reduction of world poverty is a major challenge for the international community over the next decade. It is increasingly clear that the our capacity to successfully achieve this objective will be undermined if the natural resource base for development is threatened. ~Biodiversity is a fundamental characteristic of that resource base, defining ...

  • Burden of proof in natural resources legislation (The). Some critical issues for fisheries law (En )

    Series: FAO Legislative Studies This Legislative Study examines the use of legal devices to ease or reverse the burden of proof, traditionally borne by the prosecution, in order to facilitate enforcement of fisheries legislation. This is related to the development of the precautionary principle in environmental law, which in a sense reverses the ...
