Abstract:This book discusses the problems and challenges of environmental–ecological conditions in Africa, amidst the current craze of economic growth and 'development'. Africa's significant economic dynamics and growth trajectories are marked by neglect of the environment, reinforcing ecological crises. Unless environmental–ecological and population growth problems are addressed as an integral part of developmental strategies and growth models, the crises will accelerate and lead to huge costs in later years.
