These changes are accompanied by an increasing demand for natural resources, including land, water, minerals, energy sources, food and timber. Todays foremost challenge lies in finding the tools to address the complexity of these interrelated trends, and in implementing strategies to balance environmental and socioeconomic needs. This volume contributes to this search by presenting original research, topical case studies and emerging best practice from a range of key stakeholders to examine the interface between ape conservation and industrial agriculture. In assessing the drivers behind agricultural expansion and land investments, it sheds light on governance challenges and legal frameworks that shape land use. Intended for policy makers, industry experts, decision makers, academics, researchers and NGOs, it is designed to inform debate, practice and policy to help reconcile the goals of industrial agriculture with those of ape conservation and welfare, and social and economic development.The second volume to be published in an important new series, using objective and rigorous analysis to present, for the first time, statistics and information on all non-human ape speciesIntended to enhance and influence debate, practice and policy for a broad range of policy makers, industry experts, decision makers, academics, researchers and NGOsBeautifully illustrated in full colour throughout
