The need for increased food production, enhanced economic growth and poverty reduction, whilst at the same time achieving environmental sustainability, is an issue of growing importance. This book address the linkages and tradeoffs involved in solving such key challenges. Some of the approaches taken are conceptual and theoretical, others report on specific empirical cases in which linked economic, biophysical and policy models have been used to generate analytical (often quantitative) estimates of tradeoffs, whilst others highlight institutional and policy issues involved in trying to achieve multiple social goals simultaneously. Emprical applications to areas throughout the developing world are included.

Written by leading authorities from Australasia, Europe and North America, this book examines the dynamic conflicts and synergies between nature conservation and human development in contemporary Cambodia. After suffering conflict and stagnation in the late twentieth century, Cambodia has experienced an economic transformation in the last decade, with growth averaging almost ten per cent per year, partly through investment from China. However this rush for development has been coupled with tremendous social and environmental change which, although positive in some aspects, has led to rising inequality and profound shifts in the condition, ownership and management of natural resources. High deforestation rates, declining fish stocks, biodiversity loss, and alienation of indigenous and rural people from their land and traditional livelihoods are now matters of increasing local and international concern. The book explores the social and political dimensions of these environmental changes in Cambodia, and of efforts to intervene in and 'improve' current trajectories for conservation and development. It provides a compelling analysis of the connections between nature, state and society, pointing to the key role of grassroots and non-state actors in shaping Cambodia's frontiers of change. These insights will be of great interest to scholars of Southeast Asia and environment-development issues in general.
