Gratzfeld, J. (ed.)
This publication aims to contribute to planning and management approaches that minimise land degradation and desertification in arid and semi-arid zones as a result of extractive industries operations. It is primarily intended to help those government departments responsible for the licensing, planning and monitoring of extractive industries activities to take account of environment and development issues in their decision-making. In addition, the document offers environmental planning and management fundamentals for extractive industries, local non-governmental organisations, and academic institutions.
