Environmental Management: A Socio-Cultural Methodology

Georgy Fomenko
Costa Rica: Institute for Sustainable Innovation, 2017. 311 pages.

A socio-cultural methodology uses a special range of tools to prevent conflicts between the imported, unified environmental institutions typical of the world economy and the socio-culturally determined institutions that have emerged during the evolution of traditional, long-standing relationships between humans and nature.
   Such an approach depends on an interdisciplinary synthesis using the methodological principles of social, economic and political geography, management theory, ethnology, sociology, macro and microeconomy, and political and cultural studies. The practical recommendations, presented in the book*, for taking proper account of the socio-cultural features of territories in the process of environmental management could not have been formulated without this interdisciplinary context.
