Learning about Development 2 shows how development is related to quality of life, self-esteem and freedom of choice. It also relates development in South Africa to complex international developmental and economic systems and policies.
From this theoretical perspective, it turns to more specific global problems: the ozone layer, third world problems of water provision, sanitation, housing and electricity and the roles of the community and women in environmental decision-making. Case studies provide necessary background for discussing these issues.
What emerges from this book is a picture of the complex power structures which govern the world and the role of individual empowerment in bringing about changes in our complex socio-political systems.
