Environment has become a major factor in development, as part of a global awareness on the need to either change or sustain current trends. Balancing Rocks tackles the environment issues affecting Zimbabwe, their consequences and solutions. The book is the first empirical attempt to assess Zimbabwe's environmental linkages to development on a sectoral basis and with the intention of reviewing policy for the future. It is a useful tool for all those interested in a discussion that goes beyond narrow academic or political agendas, and understand that environment and development are fragile "balancing rocks".
