In discussing theoretical and analytical issues relating to cross-border resource management, this book explores a group of geographical, political, legal, economic and cultural factors that arise when political units (such as sovereign countries, dependent states and other administrative units) seek to maximize their political and economic interests while minimizing the resultant damage (e.g. resource degradation and preservation of the physical environment).

The book is organized into three parts. Part one discusses the theoretical issues relating to cross-border development and the cross-border management of natural and environmental resources. Part two provides a variety of alternatives to advancing cross-border development as well as of options for cross-border management of resource exploitation and for cross-border conflict management. In Part three, using the theoretical and methodological frameworks that have been discussed in Parts one and two, respectively, two in-depth case studies on cross-border development and resource management are provided.

  • Examines various types of cross-border areas at both international and sub-national levels throughout the world as well as their geographical, political, economic and cultural influences on the cross-border resource management
  • Uses the latest international and area data, resulting in new findings for cross-border environmental activities
  • Contains numerous case studies throughout the world including in-depth case studies of cross-border resource management

Editorial Reviews

"This latest edition from Rongxing is recommended, and will hopefully give inspiration to an emerging scholarship of cross-border resources management and planning across very complicated contexts. This book offered clear explanations on theories, sophisticated methodologies and addressing in-depth issues from case studies. Scholars, politicians and planners can gain inspiration from this text and achieve the best cross-border practice."--Environment and Urbanization AsiA, 3, 2 (2012): 423-427
