The way ahead

An insightful look at sustainable development viewed from the perspective of climate change and new strategies for creating a green economy is what Dr Timothy Killeen's new book, The Cardamom Conundrum: Reconciling Development and Conservation in the Kingdom of Cambodia promises to provide. Using the Cardamom Mountains and surrounding landscape as an example, the author seeks to demonstrate how the wise management of a nation's renewable resources can promote robust economic growth and reduce poverty. Dr Killeen is a senior research scientist with Conservation International. Let's hope the government and all parties concerned take heed, and quickly before the rich diversity of the Cardamoms disappears forever. The book is published by the University of Hawai'i Press and the author will be in Phnom Penh on 23 May to launch his new book to an invited audience at the Intercon Hotel.
