Abstract or Description

This volume reports on current research by geographers and others into resource management and planning issues in the Caribbean region. The chapters have been selected from the thirty-five papers presented at the Third British-Caribbean Geography Seminar held at the Mona campus of the University of the West Indies, suitable revised and edited for publication. The common theme of the meeting and of this collection is the search for developmental strategies that focus on social and economic needs of people without further deterioration of the region's fragile environmental resource base, in the context of a rapidly changing political and economic world. The eighteen chapters focus on a variety of topics, emphasizing the complexities of environmental management in a changing Caribbean at the dawn of the Millennium, including tourism, its mixed benefits and problems, and all emphasize the importance of promoting new interest in the care and stewardship of the region's environmental heritage.
