About this product
- DescriptionThe apparently contradictory issues of poverty reduction and sustainable development can be jointly addressed. This book shows how ecological science and tools can be applied to address major development challenges associated with rural poverty.
- Author BiographyThe three editors of this volume, Jane Carter Ingram, Fabrice DeClerck, and Cristina Rumbatis del Rio, have collaborated on multiple projects addressing the role of ecology in poverty reduction and began working together at the Earth Institute of Columbia University.

The editors hope that the issues presented and explored in this volume will serve to encourage ecological scientists and practitioners in international development fields to collaborate together to identify creative, sustainable and viable solutions to challenges preventing poverty alleviation around the world.
