About this book

Each year throughout the world, humans use some 40% of the total amount of terrestrial primary production. Global, national and local resource stocks, particularly renewable resource stocks, are being depleted. There are many explanations for this decline, but one important aspect is government policy. Despite well-intentioned government programmes and objectives, government policy has significantly added to and exacerbated other pressures on resources - including those owned by governments themselves.
