    Why are the Third World’s environmental problems getting worse even though they are receiving unprecedented attention from policy makers and the media? Can these problems ever be solved through incremental policy changes or is their magnitude an indication of the need for a more radical approach? What are the political and economic obstacles to the resolution of the Third World’s environmental problems and how might they be overcome? These questions illustrate the need for an approach that integrates political, economic and ecological issues as the basis for an effective response to contemporary environmental problems.
