Striving for the better standards of living
59,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This work aims to answer the following research question: To what extent does community-based ecotourism contribute to securing people's livelihoods and improving local standards of living in rural poverty-stricken areas around Three Parallel Rivers? To answer this question, the author analyses community-based ecotourism through the notions of community participation and social capital, advocated by both international and Chinese development experts as a form of self-empowerment and the basis of sustainable development, and integrated in particular ways in the new policy of New Socialist Countryside Construction the Chinese government initiated in 2006. Ecotourism understood in the particular Chinese terms that the author identifies in her research, has been the central agenda for developing rural communities in the minority areas of Yunnan Province. The book thus focusses on analysing the links between specific aspects of the larger New Socialist Countryside Contruction policy in ten villages in Yunnan Province where ecotourism is promoted, the forms of community participation practiced, and the larger political context that shapes community interest itself.

Yeo Ok
34,00 € *

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Yeo Ok is often regarded as Korea's first poetess. Her poem, the Gonghuin ("A Medley for the Harp"), is one of only three poems from ancient Korean kingdom, Gojoseon (approximately 1,000-500 B.C.) and the first by a woman. One version of the poem tells how one day at day break as Yeo Ok's husband, Gwak Rijago, was rowing across a river, he saw an old mad man jump into river and try to swim across it. His wife had tried and failed to prevent him from entering the water. He was swept away and drowned. The old lady stricken with grief followed her husband into the water singing and playing her lyre and met the same sad fate as her husband. Gwak Rijago told his wife Yeo Ok about the sad event and the tale and this moved her to set the old lady's words to music. Yeo Ok's poem then was written to be sung accompanied by a lyre (called a gong-in). The first record of this poem is in Chinese language but authorities are uncertain as to whether it was originally written in Chinese characters or first composed in Korean and then later translated.

Breaking Out of the Poverty Trap

ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book provides unique insights into the challenges and potential solutions to alleviate poverty in western China. Many people are interested in China's economic and social development; the development of Tibet is an important part of this narrative. Unlike big cities in the east of China, Tibet is still underdeveloped, with severe poverty, relatively poor communications, poor infrastructure, transport links, and limited social services. Using deep and well-researched analyses, learned Chinese scholars share their policy insights, experience and knowledge of the underlying causes and potential solutions to this underdevelopment and poverty. The reader is also provided with firsthand accounts of different people in Tibet, ranging from local government officials to poverty-stricken herdsmen. This book gets at the heart of problems faced by ordinary Tibetans, such as dealing with impacts of natural disasters, lack of education, managing ecological resettlement, and trying to prevent the transmission of intergenerational poverty. Looking at these issues from a theoretical, policy, government and practical perspective, Breaking Out of the Poverty Trap ¿ Case Studies from the Tibetan Plateau in Yunnan, Qinghai and Gansu covers the full range of issues in the development of the Tibetan Plateau.
