Poverty and Environmental Resource Degradation-An Alternative Explanation and Possible Solutions

The author's plea, however, is not for revival of traditional arrangements as they were. His focus is instead on a search for functional substitutes for the traditional arrangements which can fit in with present day circumstances.
