About this book

Language: English, also available in French and Spanish

The successor to the World Conservation Strategy published in 1980, which first gave currency to the term `sustainable development', this new document, a global strategy for a sustainable society, is intended to restate current thinking about conservation and development in an informative and encouraging way, and is orientated towards practical action. It sets targets for the changes in our lives that will move us towards a sustainable society and urges a concerted effort to make this ethic a global force in personal, national and international relations. It insists on the importance of measuring achievements against the hopes with which actions are launched.
