Environmental Justice in Developing Countries : Perspectives from Africa and Asia-Pacific, Hardback Book

Environmental Justice in Developing Countries : Perspectives from Africa and Asia-Pacific Hardback

Part of the Routledge Explorations in Environmental Studies series

Description

The evolving environmental justice paradigm is conceptualized differently based on political, economic and historical factors.

In developed countries, emphasis is placed on the role of individuals in environmental decision-making and the protection of their access to the prerequisite environmental information and capacity to challenge environmental decisions is the main focus.

However, in developing countries, access to land and natural resources are considered integral elements of environmental justice paradigm.

This book focuses on the conceptualization, recognition and protection of environmental justice in developing countries.

It explores the situation by engaging an analytical discourse of relevant legal provisions in four case study countries including Nigeria, South Africa, India and Papua New Guinea.

The comparative analysis of environmental justice in these countries present a framework within which to appreciate the conceptualization of the environmental justice paradigm
