Summary: "...examins environmental issues from a social work perspective...draws attention to the important voice of practitioners working on the ground in the aftermath of environmental disasters, whether these are caused by climate change, industrial accidents or human conflict...explores the concept of 'green social work' and its role in using environmental crises to address poverty and other forms of structural inequalities, to obtain more equitable allocations of limited natural resources and to tackle global sociopolitical forces that have a damaging impact upon the quality of life of poor and marginalized populations at local levels..."--p.4 of cover.
