Sustainable Development and Mining in Sierra Leone


Based on a PhD thesis, with a focus on Sierra Leone, this book explores the conflicts between pursuing mining activities to foster economic development and protecting the environment in which such activities take place. This study presents sustainable development as valuable recipe, by which mining ventures could be pursued as an economic imperative (to meet the needs of present and future generations), while protecting the environment and its components in the pursuit of such developments.


Priscilla Schwartz highlights the conflicts between activities to foster economic development and protecting the environment and recommends the policies needed to tackle the issues raised in this well researched book.
