Social Capital and Biodiversity
The volume Social Capital and Biodiversity: Communities, Connections and Conservations examines the global issues of ‘biodiversity’, efforts of the local communities and their knowledge systems concerning conservation of biodiversity with the mediation of social capital theory. Perfectly suited to the track of the time, it touches upon the themes that have come to define this crucial issue. Prevention of biodiversity loss is now seen as a ‘global issue’ having ‘local solutions’. Based on insights from the field, it critically examines the local response to the global issue.
The present book has got the potential for a wider readership across disciplines – sociology, anthropology, political science, economics, environmental studies, and development studies.
The book is also a meaningful text for policymakers and development practitioners engaged in community and conservation of biodiversity. Founded both on empirical and conceptual segments, the book may serve as an essential guide to one of the most challenging discourses of our times.
