Contributions by: Per Harald Olsen

A newly planned road that will cross the northern sector of the Serengeti National Park has stirred both national and international protests, causing intense discussions on the internet, in newspapers, and in scientific literature. In response the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) presented a comprehensive study of subsequent consequences of the construction of such a road with concern to biodiversity, human, and animal health, as well as the social structures of the communities living close to the planned road. In this book we discuss the consequences this upgraded road will have on human social life and the environment. The wonderful wildlife of the Serengeti National Park, as well as the fascinating local cultures and peoples, are shown in stunningly beautiful photos in this superbly designed book.
