Nigeria's Security Interest in the Gulf of Guinea: Nigeria's Security Interest in the Gulf of Guinea: Новинка

Nigeria's Security Interest in the Gulf of Guinea:

4839 руб.
THE Gulf of Guinea is an enclave of growing economic, social, political and geostrategic importance. It is also an enclave of overwhelming poverty, disease, chronic instability and prone to terrorist incursion. The establishment of a new combatant force (AFRICOM) for the region (GULF OF GUINEA) and Africa in general by the United States of America marks an important milestone in the evolution of relations between the U.S and the government of the Gulf region. Through AFRICOM, the United States Department of Defense will consolidate the efforts of other existing Commands and headquarters as it seek a more stable environment for political and economic growth in the Gulf of Guinea. In line with such goals, AFRICOM would be pioneering a bold method of military engagement focused on war prevention, interagency cooperation, and development rather than on traditional war fighting. It is in such view that this study is carried out to assess Nigeria’s security interest in the Gulf of Guinea owing to her supposed leadership position in the region.

Gulf of Mannar is one of the unique coastal regions for rich biodiversity in India. There is a vast area between Tuticorin and Kanyakumari which has never been explored so far even its comes under Marine Biosphere Reserve and includes thousands of fishermen who depend on fishery for their daily livelihood. The present pilot scale study was conducted in kudankulam coast within a 4 km radius in marine zone from kudankulam nuclear power project which confirmed that southern part of the Gulf of Mannar can also provide plentiful resources including rich ecologically sensitive habitats like seagrass and coral ecosystem. The resources in this region may not be similar to the northern part between Rameswaram and Tuticorin, but they are potent enough to provide a good source for fishery. Since various developmental activities like the nuclear power plant which is to be operated in the near future, it is very important to have a detailed baseline data on the seagrass, corals and associated organisms of this coastal region.With this baseline data the number of species in the Gulf of Mannar Biosphere Reserve can be estimated in the future studies.

Effects Of Crude Oil On Marine Clam, Volume I

3549 руб.
Oil exploration and development with the threat of pollution to living marine resources has increasingly become a public issue.The shift in balance of an ecosystem from a severely altered one, immediately following a major oil spill to a stable ecosystem can require many years. Certain organisms can be killed by water-soluble fractions (WSFs) of oil and exhibit sublethal response at much lower concentrations (1 to 10 ppb). The carcinogenic properties and anthropogenic origins of polyaromatic hydrocarbons in the crude oil have led to interest in understanding their distribution and fate in the environment. The aim of researcher is to study and evaluate the toxic effects of water soluble fractions (WSFs) of Persian Gulf and Bombay High Crude oil on common marine clams of Mumbai coast such as Gafrarium divaricatum and Dosinia fibula, so as to serve as a baseline for monitoring the consequences of petroleum toxicity. Clams are widely distributed and are of great value as food for man. Because of increased demand and decreased production due to water pollution and other causes, their market price has increased greatly during past few years.

We humans like to define where we are going by defining where we are. This perspective represents an important problem in natural sciences because when we measure how much an ecosystem or area has changed, we generally compare it with its condition a few years ago. The risk is that each time that this is done, the baseline of our comparison may have drifted further and further away from the original starting point, impairing the true magnitude of past environmental changes. In this book, we present a multidisciplinary work to reconstruct for first time the past upper Gulf of California ecosystem (Mexico) for three key periods of time, 1900, 1940 & 2000 to determine the role of nutrients and sediments delivered by the Colorado River in the structure and function of this ecosystem. The reconstruction of the upper Gulf of California is based on mass-balance models (Ecopath with Ecosim) which include Local Environmental Knowledge from the fishing communities of this region in an attempt to quantify important losses of abundance and diversity over the past 50 years. This book presents material that proves that human intervention can trigger rapid and significant changes in the functio

Large-scale Mining in Papua New Guinea

4839 руб.
Revision with unchanged content. In the 1970s and 1980s, Papua New Guinea used to be a good spot for in­ves­ting in the mineral sector. This situation, however, changed. Especially since the Bougainville crisis – rooted in conflicts produced by a large-scale mining operation – became one of the most difficult and protracted problems in the state’s short history. It is quite clear that resource extraction brings profound changes, when it is carried out in a former intact environment. But what are the changes that happen when a large-scale mining operation starts? And are these changes able to produce different kinds of conflicts? This monograph should present a discussion of the changes that such large-scale mining ope­rations entail for local rural communities in Papua New Guinea. For this rea­son, three different peoples from the Ok Tedi mining area are compared in the second half of this book. Thereby, the focus lies on the reactions of the local people to those changes and the conflicts that may result. This book is addressed to people who have a general interest in the pos­si­ble consequences caused by large-scale mining operations in rural areas and the outcomes for the local population.

Seagrasses: An Ecosystem Under Threat

7790 руб.
Seagrasses are generally known for their significant role in marine and estuarine ecosystems. The growth in human population along the coastal regions, where the seagrass live, makes them very vulnerable to the human-induced disturbances. Large-scale seagrass decline has been reported worldwide due to this problem. There is an evident need to monitor seagrass population to predict future changes and to protect coastal ecosystems from further degradation. The decline of seagrass beds results in their fragmentation and appearance of smaller patches of seagrass isolated from each other. This reference provides a synthesis on how fragmentation of seagrass beds influence their role in the ecosystem. The other part of this book specifically deals with the effect of heavy metal contamination on seagrass and associated fauna. Despite the well- publicised issue of metal contamination of highly urbanised marine systems and its effect on seagrasses, this is the first synthesis on the contamination effect on the seagrass community using a range of bioindicators and biomarkers in order to obtain an integral picture of the contamination effect.

This research is going to examen the US policies toward Iran and its implications on regional security in the Persian Gulf during the period from 1979 – 2008. In addition, the study also evaluated the U.S. policies toward Iran in relations to the Persian Gulf during the presidencies of Carter, Reagan, George HW Bush, Clinton, and George Bush during this period of time. The objectives of the research were achieved by seeking answers to the two research questions: 1) What were the evolutions of the U.S. regional security policies regarding Iran in the Persian Gulf from 1979 to 2008?; 2) What were the influences of the U.S. regional security policies on the regional peace and stability regarding Iran in the Persian Gulf? according to the “Regional Security Complex Theory”, there were significant relationships between the rivalries of the regional states in the Persian Gulf and external interventions. The results revealed that local rivalries led to the interference by external powers in the region. In the case of Iran, the rivalries inside the Gulf Cooperation Council states and between them and Iran and Iraq led to U.S. intervention in the region.

Marine ecosystem active in West Bengal offshore including ‘Sundarbans’ exhibits an excellent breeding - nursing ground of uncountable marine species. With increasing demand for fish, commercial trawling is intensified very fast by modern bull trawlers specialy in Digha and Shankarpur offshore which is very likely to have destroyed undersea habitat of benthic species forming extensively broad baseline of marine food chain. Richness of benthic biodiversity is proved to be inversely related to the offshore distance because benthic nutrients deposition getting thinner with increasing offshore distance. Higher loss of benthic biodiversity takes place at shallower continental shelf closer to coast because of maximum benthic nutrient deposition at this submarine zone and vice versa. Loss of these species must also endanger the existence of all of their predators causing an irreparable loss to entire marine ecosystem of West Bengal offshore. This study finally chalked out a proper Environmental Management Plan highlighting some curative and preventive measures for the best conservative use of these prospective marine resources ensuring maximum environmental protection of ‘Sundarbans’(World

Since 2008, the capturing of commercial vessels and their crews by Somali pirates has become an ever increasing threat to international shipping. This threat has had a significant and detrimental effect on the ports surrounding the high risk areas, now encompassing the Gulf of Aden, the Arabian Sea, the Red Sea, the Gulf of Oman and the Indian Ocean. Around 30,000 ships transit the Gulf of Aden each year but around 10% of this ship traffic now opts to re-route around the Cape of Good Hope, rather than transit the Gulf of Aden and Suez Canal. As a result of the threat of piracy in the high risk region, some countries (and in particular, Kenya, Yemen and the Seychelles) has seen a direct fall-off in trade, which has a corresponding effect on freight and port rates.

Water Supply and the Prevalence of Guinea Worm in Savelugu District

4839 руб.
Access to potable water still remain an illusion to over one billion people which is manifested in high incidence of water and sanitation related diseases such as guinea worm. With the launch of the Guinea Worm Eradication Programme in 1989, interventions such as the provision of potable water and treatment of unwholesome water before use were pursued. Albeit these interventions, the worm is still prevalent in the Savelugu-Nantong District of Northern Ghana. This work investigated why in spite of the huge investment in water and sanitation facilities, as well as education campaigns, the disease is still persistent. The incidence of guinea worm over space does not relate with the distribution of water facilities; it is more preponderant in the south- eastern corridor and in the major communities where there is potable water. This book examines the relationship between water supply and guinea worm infestations and will be useful for water and sanitation sector stakeholders and practitioners such as staff of District Assemblies, Water and Sanitation Teams, District Health Directorate and the Guinea Worm Eradication Programme.

Water Resource Management in GCC States: Challenges and Remedies

3549 руб.
The present work deals with the management of water resources in the GCC countries. Indeed, besides food security, water has been one of the most pressing challenges for the bloc. The GCC depends primarily on desalination to meet its daily water requirements, which not only increases pollution by discharging the brine into the narrow Gulf-water-passage but also consumes huge amount of energy, particularly oil. As a result, the GCC countries, which predominantly depend on oil revenues, are squeezed by growing oil consumption by water plants. This monograph underlines the risks involved in the security of these large desalination setups, particularly from the possible threats posed by the extremist forces, and nuclear radiation in the Gulf waters. Majority of the GCC countries' water plants are on the Gulf coast, and strikingly most of the nuclear power plants either existing or proposed, are on the two sides of the Gulf coast. In this backdrop, the author tries to infuse some useful insights on the region's water management & security. It also delves into the issues of terrorism that may possibly target these life-saving depots just to discredit the monarchical regimes.

Aquatic ecosystems are heavily impacted by anthropogenic activities, e.g. fishing, eutrophication and habitat destruction. The effects of these activities are analyzed in the context of the entire aquatic ecosystem by applying two different modelling techniques on two ecosystems in Western Australia. Shark Bay, which is listed as World Heritage Site, was investigated in this study by applying loop analysis. Qualitative models were developed to assess the role of tiger sharks and the impacts of fishing on the seagrass ecosystem of Shark Bay. The Peel-Harvey Estuary was investigated using a quantitative modelling technique, such as Ecopath, Ecosim and Ecospace. The estuary is listed as RAMSAR site with importance for waterbirds and has been impacted by eutrophication for decades. It was investigated how an artificial entrance channel, built in 1994, has influenced the ecosystem. Furthermore, the role of primary producers and waterbirds and the effects of fishing on the ecosystem were explored. In consideration of conservation measures, Ecospace is applied to identify an effective Marine Protected Area for the Peel-Harvey Estuary.

The practice of Fanadu “female circumcision” is a human rights violation that affects almost 50% of the women’s in Guinea-Bissau, despite wide range of national and international human rights norms that grant women’s right to health and bodily integrity. Nearly 30 years of worldwide campaigns to end the practice - which has resulted in high success rates in neighboring countries such as Senegal - seems not to affect the trends and high incidence rates of the practice in Guinea-Bissau. The book uncovers the reasons for this deeply rooted traditional practice in the specific context of Guinea-Bissau and its linkages to ethnicity, religion and culture. It alerts to the perils’ of copy-past approaches and suggests the adoption of policies and action plans that takes into account the specific context and dynamics in the country as a way of ensuring long-lasting and successful solutions to the practice of Fanadu in Guinea-Bissau.

The opening of the Suez Canal in 1869 made the Red Sea one of the most important shipping routes connecting Europe with East Asia and Australia. The closing of the canal after the 1967 Arab-Israeli War, the building of pipelines to the Mediterranean Sea, and the construction of supertankers too large for the canal diminished the sea's importance as a commercial artery, especially for petroleum. In 1975, however, the canal was reopened and enlarged, and traffic through the sea increased. Suez, Egypt; Elat, Israel; Aqaba, Jordan; Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; Hodeida, Yemen; Massawa, Eritrea; and Port Sudan, Sudan, are the main ports on the Red Sea and its northern arms. As Jordan's only marine outlet to the sea and as an important port for Israel and Egypt, the Gulf of Aqaba also serves as a significant waterway to the Middle East. In view of these characteristics, it is not unexpected that Egypt,Jordan and Israel start realizing the fact that sea pollution pays no attention to political boundaries - This whats the author is willing to conclude-.

Fish is one of the highly perishable commodities and it occupies a very important place in socio-economic development of the country. A large section of economically underprivileged population in India gets livelihood by fish sector . Andhra Pradesh, on the East Coast of India, is the fifth largest state in India, not only in terms of area and population, but also in marine fish production. In spite of the fact that the fish is important diet, it is indeed the economic value of fish that spur production in Andhra Pradesh. There is abundant of research on operations of marine fish but not on consumption of the same. This research on marine fish give very insightful observations on consumption and other factors of market. While, individuals don't buy much fish, but their consumption is not so negligible. As far as price is concerned it appears that they may not mind spending money on marine fish once the consumer determined to buy. The cluster analysis gives more interesting findings in terms of people characteristics as who buy what? how much they really spend? significance of age and gender in consuming marine fish and etc.

Foreign policy is the result of complex interactions of different political fields. During the second half of the twentieth century, the Cold War presented the dominating framework of international relations and United States foreign policy in particular. This context also influenced U.S. foreign policy in the Persian Gulf, yet, the approaches of the different administrations from Eisenhower to George H. W. Bush were highly diverse. This book seeks to explain the broad developments and contents of U.S. foreign policy in the Persian Gulf in the context of the Cold War. With regard to the constantly perceived Soviet threat, it intends to explain the foreign policy assumptions and strategies that have shaped American policies over the years and finally contributed to the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.

The expanding U.S. oil demands on the Gulf of Guinea have become overwhelming. Hence, the strategic need for the U.S. to effectively sustain oil flows from the Guinean Gulf as well as surmount the existing militant threats therein are medley of events which saw to the birth of AFRICOM in October, 2008. The study unraveled that any U.S military intervention in the oil region will inversely intensify and expand militant activities to a higher proportion and also magnet some anti-U.S terrorist groups into Nigeria. This may degenerate to the destabilization of the country in which the U.S. may choose to promote balkanization for its own oil interest. Further, any presence of AFRICOM in the country will necessarily subjugate and overwhelm the national defense role of the Nigerian military, and as well, automatically warrant the relinquishment of Nigeria’s military intelligence to America. In view of this, we suggested, a non-military U.S. involvement, through the redirection of the billions of US dollars, budgeted for AFRICOM’s operations, towards a multidimensional development paradigm in the Niger Delta, in order to guarantee sustainable peace and business friendly environment.

Restoration and ecosystem consequences of changing biodiversity

4839 руб.
Humans are altering the composition of biological communities through a variety of activities that increase rates of species invasions and species extinctions, at all scales, from local to global. These changes in components of the Earth's biodiversity have a strong potential to alter ecosystem. Ecological experiments, observations, and theoretical developments show that ecosystem properties depend greatly on biodiversity in terms of the functional characteristics of organisms present in the ecosystem and the distribution and abundance of those organisms over space and time. Species effects act in concert with the effects of climate, resource availability, and disturbance regimes in influencing ecosystem properties. The scientific community has come to a broad consensus on many aspects of the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, including many points relevant to management of ecosystems. Further progress will require integration of knowledge about biotic and abiotic controls on ecosystem properties, how ecological communities are structured, and the forces driving species extinctions and invasions.

Most of the big cities in West Africa are located along the coast. These cities are vulnerable due to the climate change. The coastal issues are not understood because few studies have been undertaken due to the lack of limited dataset. During these last ten years, many regional programs (ODINAFRICA, PROPAO) have been implemented to collect in situ data. This study combines the previous data and those acquired by the new equipment to investigate the Gulf of Guinea coastal issues. Harmonic analyses based on three software were performed to determine the harmonic constituents in the aim for tidal prediction. Gaussian filters were applied to altimetry data and tide gauges records for sea level anomalies time series analysis. The tides are well described by the three software. All these packages give globally very similar results of the harmonic constituents. The tide gauges records are well compared to altimetry satellite data along the West African coasts. The rate of sea level increasing is comparable with that observed at global scale. However, the African coasts remain vulnerable due to the lack of adequate prevention systems in the case of extreme marine events.

Marine fish supply chain depends Marine fisheries sector that has long been an important source of occupation and livelihood for the coastal communities of the country. It is estimated that at least 3 million people derive their livelihood from marine capture fisheries who reside over 3,600 fishing villages situated along the Indian coastline. The majority of those in the sector are small-scale and artisanal fishermen, who derive their livelihood from fishing, netting, artisanal processing and small-scale trading activities. Consumers in India are aware of the health benefits of eating fish and retail outlets are seizing the opportunity to market of the fish. Despite of the high price of fish, consumers are ready to pay the price for good quality fish. Maharashtra is an important state in the marine fisheries of India. It occupies 4th place in the marine fish production. The annual marine fish production of Maharashtra state is 3.5 lakh tons.Keeping in view the facts of marine fisheries, study will be conducted on the basis of identification of major modern and traditional fish supply chain operating in Mumbai.their management practices,estimate the margin, price spread etc.

Biodiversity is the contraction of biological diversity. Plant-biodiversity is the most important component of total biodiversity. ‘‘Biodiversity” is the variability among living organisms from all sources including, inter alia, terrestrial, marine and other aquatic ecosystems and the ecological complexes of which they are part. It includes diversity within species, between species and of ecosystem. Plant-biodiversity is the plant genetic wealth of a country. Economically and genetically important materials selected by both human and nature, adapted in the environment are the components of homesteads. Homesteads are the in situ conservation sites of wide range of plant-biodiversity. Environmental variations offer unique opportunity to select appropriate genotypes at different regions. Diversity of genes within plant species increases its ability to adapt in adverse environment. Any decrease in genetic variability may lead to ecosystem instability. Plant biodiversity is instrumental to cycling and recycling of nutrients and thereby achieving the stability of the ecosystem.

Semi-Arid and Sahelian Africa (SASA) has unpredictable rainfall patterns due to large fluctuations in the amount of rains and rainfall distribution, erratic onset of the rainy season (often leading farmers to late sowing and/or replanting of their fields), erratic rainfalls at the end of the rainy season, occurrence of drought spells at any time during the rainy season or terminal drought due to premature ending of rains often causing zero harvest. In this zone, unfavorable for growing most other cereals, “nature cared” crops of sorghum and millet, are vital to food security. This condition is, for sorghums -guinea race in particular, due to their possessing numerous adaptive traits that make them desirable for cultivation in the harsh climatic conditions of SASA. However, sorghum yield is very low in this region, still below a ton/ha. The author uses conventional breeding, quantitative genetics and SSR markers to dissect heterosis to explore the feasibility of exploitation of this natural phenomenon in sorghum as a means to boost yield and lay down the foundation of sorghum seed industry in West Africa, while maintaining the adaptive features of guinea race sorghums.

The past decade has seen the major development of fish-farming industry, particularly for salmon, in the semi-enclosed coastal marine environment, which are characterized by high nutrient inputs mostly in the form of high protein content food and juvenile to the fish farm, has created some negative impact on the coastal ecosystem and the environment. The heterotrophic microorganisms are the major agents in natural ecosystem to reduce environmental stress, although their activities are also limited by a large number of ambient ecological variables. Our purpose in writing this research book is to bring together concepts and data from different research experiments to provide a foundation, both for understanding the problems we face, and for finding ways to progress toward of an eco-friendly environment. Findings from experiments conducted during different seasons of the year for improvement of eutrophic bottom environments by adding bacteria have been discussed. Method to add bacteria to the system, their source, morphological and physiological characteristics has also been revealed. We hope this book will be an interesting, informative and inspiring resource toward that end.

This research shows the progress of platforms, strategies, policies and actions in regard with forest ecosystem services in the European Union. It also depicts the trend of science/scientific work after the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment Synthesis Report had been published in 2005. It assesses strengths and weaknesses of the main stream of EU policies such as the EU Forestry Strategy and the Forest Action Plan. The research demonstrates many shortages concerning adequate focus on the forest ecosystem services in both domains, EU policy and scientific knowledge. It illustrates that both fields have payed dominant attention to climate change and biodiversity. Indeed, both of these issues have already been part of crucial discussions in the field of environment protection, before forest ecosystem services attracted proper attention. The accomplished research provides some suggestions to bridge the gaps in the field of forest ecosystem services and integrate the results of researches into the policy making process.

Ethnomedicinal research has historically focussed on botanical products, ignoring, by and at large, the records on animal-based medicine. Whenever non-botanical remedies appear on indigenous pharmacopoeias, these are taken with little interest and are explained as de facto - i.e. “They occur because they occur-” This lack of interest impedes ethnobiologists to develop further investigations or theoretical afterthoughts that would enable to articulate ethnomedicinal systems as holistic ecological adaptations. Among non-botanical medicines, those from marine sources hardly receive any mention. This book describes how do botanical and marine medicines relate within an ethnomedicinal knowledge system. In this research, I focussed on Seri ethnomedicine. The Seri are an indigenous group of hunter-gatherers located in the mainland portion of the Central Gulf Region in Sonora, Mexico. Seri posses an extremely pragmatic ethnomedicinal system which provides a rich case for this examination. During a one year long survey in a Seri village, and aided by 67 Seri collaborators, I came to the conclusion that Seri marine and terrestrial medicines are part of a single body of medicinal knowledge.

In August 1990, Saddam Hussein's Iraqi forces boldly invaded and occupied neighboring Kuwait. It was a move that shocked the world and threatened the interests of those countries, such as the USA and the nations of Europe, dependent on oil from the Middle East. The ensuing Gulf War signaled, for many, a new dawn in warfare: one based upon lethal technology, low casualties, and quick decisive victory.Incorporating the latest scholarship, William Thomas Allison provides a concise overview of the origins, key events and legacy of the first Gulf War, as well as the major issues and debates. Allison also examines the relevance of this war to other twentieth-century conflicts and the ongoing situation in the region.

This book is concerned with the bioactive compounds produced by marine bacteria because marine macroorganisms and microorganisms produce a dizzying array of active compounds including terpens, steroids, peptides and alkaloids, which have potent activities as anti-microbial agents. Some compounds isolated from marine macroorganisms have been shown to be of microbial origin.The search for new natural products from marine microorganisms has already shown promise with the discovery of compounds with possible use as anticancer and cardiovascular agents . With worldwide sales of 45 billion dollars, anti-infectives represent the third largest therapeutic area. Half of all marine natural products documents reported bioactivity data from marine microorganisms at the rate of approximately 700 per year over the last decade.

The Conservation of Sarobetsu Mire

Land reclamation such as deforestation, agriculture, drainage, urbanization and residential development has large impacts on the ecology of the surrounding ecosystems. These include the changes of animal and plant communities, as well as the changes in hydrology and hydrochemical regimes. Sarobetsu Mire, a raised bog in northern Hokkaido, Japan, is a case in point. Its ecosystem is gradually losing its natural state because of human perturbations at the surrounding area, causing the water level to decrease and threatening a change in the entire mire ecosystem. Some early signs for the change were a reduction of water levels and an invasion of an exotic plant, Sasa spp., at the western part of the mire. The restoration of the ecosystem was attempted through the restoration of water chemistry regimes. The status of water chemistry maintains a well deserved place of importance for the conservation of raised mire ecosystems. The poor-nutrient status will enhance the growth of blanket bog bryophytes, which will further develop this peat-forming habitat. The stable and high water level is the condition that will support this development.

Oceanography and Marine Biology

Oceanography and Marine Biology preserves the basic elements of the physical, chemical, and geological aspects of the marine sciences, and merges those fundamentals into a broader framework of marine biology and ecology. Existing textbooks on oceanography or marine biology address the companion field only cursorily: very few pages in oceanography texts are devoted to marine biology, and vice versa. This new book overcomes that imbalance, bringing these disparate marine science text formats closer together, giving them more equal weight, and introducing more effectively the physical sciences by showing students with everyday examples how such concepts form the foundation upon which to build a better understanding of the marine environment in a changing world. Lecturer supplements will also be available.

Revision with unchanged content. In the 1970s and 1980s, Papua New Guinea used to be a good spot for in­ves­ting in the mineral sector. This situation, however, changed. Especially since the Bougainville crisis – rooted in conflicts produced by a large-scale mining operation – became one of the most difficult and protracted problems in the state’s short history. It is quite clear that resource extraction brings profound changes, when it is carried out in a former intact environment. But what are the changes that happen when a large-scale mining operation starts? And are these changes able to produce different kinds of conflicts? This monograph should present a discussion of the changes that such large-scale mining ope­rations entail for local rural communities in Papua New Guinea. For this rea­son, three different peoples from the Ok Tedi mining area are compared in the second half of this book. Thereby, the focus lies on the reactions of the local people to those changes and the conflicts that may result. This book is addressed to people who have a general interest in the pos­si­ble consequences caused by large-scale mining operations in rural areas and the outcomes for the local population.
