Ecosystem Services and Human Well-being at Lake Ngami, Botswana: Implications for Sustainability

“Case studies covered in this book provide an opportunity for decision-makers and other readers to reflect on the nexus between biodiversity and ecosystem services conservation that should be methodically managed. The Lake Ngami situation, as described in the book, occasionally depicts an element of complexity faced by decision-makers towards the lake inhabitants. It is against this backdrop that, the socio-economic chapters of the book promote behavioral change in decision-making and policy formulation in resource rich areas such as Lake Ngami and the rest of the Okavango Delta.”

“This book fills an important gap in the literature on the UNESCO World Heritage Site “Okavango Delta.” Written by a multidisciplinary team of experts, it discusses the entire range of ecosystem services that Lake Ngami provides, and suggests how it can be best managed. Excellent reading for scholars and planners.”
