About this book

A guide to the most pressing environmental problems around the world. It draws on data from the World Bank's Little Green Data Book, providing a wealth of information on key environmental topics for over 200 countries and territories. Concern for the environment is not a rich-country luxury. Environmental degradation has the greatest impact on the world's poorest people in the world's poorest countries. At the same time, poverty is one of the greatest threats to our planet's environment. Taking an in-depth look at such critical issues as agriculture, forestry, biodiversity, energy, emission and pollution, and water and sanitation, this is a unique and timely resource for better understanding the world's most urgent environmental challenges.
