Reviews

“Focus on environmental nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in sub-Saharan Africa, and draw upon their in-depth study of environmental NGOs in Cameroon … . this book is geared to both inform scholars and offer practical guidance to NGOs and other development practitioners … . This is reflected in both the structure and language of the book, and the way the authors isolate theoretical discussions into specific sections so that they can be accessed or avoided depending on the readers needs.” (Hannah Keren Lee, Environment & Urbanization, environmentandurbanization.org, June, 2016)
