This book is about the obstacles to and consequences of exploiting one such area in the rainforest of Peru and presents guidelines drawn from that experience which should help.

Malaysia has a climate of high humidity, high temperature and abundant rainfall. Rivers supply about 97% of the country's total water needs while ground water accounts for the rest. About 40% of the treated water is lost through man-caused leakages.

With a population of million people, the total annual domestic, industrial and irrigation water demand is about x MI. This figure is. able development among tropical and nontropical countries alike, with special concern for the world's humid tropics.

This report focuses on the humid tropics, a biogeographical area within the tropical zone that contains most of its population and biologically rich natural resources.

Particularly in the tropics, land use decisions are still based on the informal opinion of local experts rather than on implementation of Decision Support Systems for environmentally sound.Aim Humid tropical alpine environments are crucial ecosystems that sustain biodiversity, biological processes, carbon storage and surface water provision.

They are identified as one of the terrestrial ecosystems most vulnerable to global environmental change. Despite their vulnerability, and the importance for regional biodiversity conservation and socio‐economic development, they are among.7 Is ecotourism in the humid tropics environmentally friendly?
