Analysis of ecological and socio-economic impacts of traditional lifestyles, political intervention and profit-oriented transformation in an era of increased mobility, worldwide globalisation, growing demand for (hydroelectric) power, population growth and corresponding food shortage, which leads to erosion, desertification and forest clearing.
