During the last 10 years, contours have been developing of a new scientific field with a focus on the political aspects of environmental problems in the tropics. Ton Dietz suggests that political environmental geography - or what others call 'political ecology' - is now questioning the extent to which governments and NGOs influence the way people use their resources and manage their environment. The issues at stake are not so much the technical and organizational aspects of environmental management, but the power structures behind the causes of environmental problems and behind the attempts at solving them.Development (1999) 42, 13–19. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110030
