Publisher: International Institute for Environment and Development

This twice-yearly journal provides researchers, NGO staff and professionals
in Africa, Asia and Latin America with the chance to write about their work,
present their ideas and debate on issues. It promotes the work of French,
Spanish and Portuguese-speaking authors by arranging for the translation of
their work into English. It is one of the few journals on Africa, Asia and
Latin America where a majority of the authors come from these regions.
Each issue goes to over 1,200 universities, teaching institutions, NGOs and
individuals in Africa, Asia and Latin America, as well as to over 1,000
subscribers in high-income nations.

Now in its 17th year of publication, Environment and Urbanization is one of
the most widely read and distributed journals in its field, helped by its
low price, the free subscriptions available to NGOs and teaching/training
institutions in the South who find it difficult to obtain foreign exchange
(due to support from Sida, DFID and DANIDA), and an active Advisory Board
(most of whom are from NGOs and research institutes in Africa, Asia and
Latin America).

Each issue has a special theme and includes:

* 9-14 papers on that theme
* a guide to the literature on the theme (in some issues)
* profiles of innovative NGOs
* papers on participatory tools and methods (since April 1995)
* Book Notes ‹ summaries of new books, research reports and newsletters, and
how these can be obtained (including those in Spanish, French and
