nvironmental policies are painstakingly extricating themselves from beaurocratic planning and the legacy of their colonial
history. The current decade has seen the emergency of a new doctrine for protected areas that repositions governance and
people at the heart of the project to reorganize our relations with other species and the environment. This evolution remains
fraught with conflicts. Leading conservation biologists make the case that in the face of new global extinction, protracted areas have
ceased to meet the special and temporal requirements of biodiversity conservation. But they also advocate an antidevelopment
agenda backed up by compelling remote sensing imageries targeting development free ecosystems particularly in Africa and
Latin America. By contrast landscape scale partnerships such as those promoted by the international model forest network see
development as the driver of sustainability and biodiversity governance in such ecosystems.
There are nearly three billion poor and half a billion hungry people in rich biodiverse environment around the world and it
makes little sense to believe that the latter can preserved in the long run at the expense of the former. There is a need to reinvent
a popular economy of the environment, but debate or in Africa laws and policies.
A large and growing number of community conservation initiatives in Africa, Asia and Latin America are taking place
outside the formal confines of conservation projects or bureaucratic decision making. All demonstrate the capacity of local society
to formulate and carry out conservation endeavors that are profoundly liberating, without necessarily resorting to the discursive
and instrumental rationality of conventional forms of conservation, decentralization or electoral politics. These evolutions and
contradictions constitutes an opportunity for rethinking Africa?s environmental and economic future in relation to web of related
issues, particularly tenure, natural resource governance, development capabilities, climate policies and democracy.
