This unit explores the ways in which ideas about human-environment relations have revolutionised theories, practices and politics of international development and global environmental change. It explores the major historical and contemporary debates in the natural and social sciences concerning nature and human economy and the evolution of current thinking and approaches to environmental sustainability. Contemporary perspectives such as feminist approaches to ecology, varieties of environmentalism in the South, environmental racism, and eco-trading are incorporated in these discussions.
