In recent years, there has been a socio-ecological transformation in land-use in sub-Saharan Africa, brought about by climate change and the globalization of natural resource management and rural landscapes, such that rural Africa has become a laboratory of global future-making. This new series offers a rich and valuable perspective on the processes and practices that produce and critically reflect upon visions of the future on the continent. Volumes within the series will address socio-ecological, cultural and economic development; climate control, sustainability and migration; land acquisitions and rural governance; rural livelihoods, identities and cultures; conservation, environmental management and community relations. Showcasing cutting-edge research into societal change and the reverberations of global dynamics playing out in sub-Saharan Africa, the series will provide an indispensable resource in this key area of African Studies for scholars, development practitioners, political planners, governmental and non-governmental organisations. Please send proposals to the series editors. Please do not send full manuscripts unless you are requested to do so.
