From flint chip to silicon chip - the major advances in medicine, food production, space travel and communication are achievements of which the human race can be truly proud. Whatever challenges we've faced in the past we have survived and prospered. However, there is problem...The scale of the global issues we are facing today: unsustainable population growth; climate change; energy supplies; water supplies; planet sustainability and biodiversity; extreme poverty; global health; universal education; and, conflict and finance are more daunting than ever.
Nevertheless these issues must be addressed. Is there the required will, commitment and, in fact, capability to tackle these global challenges? We need to begin acting a lot smarter, and faster, if we are going to avert the potential devastating impacts on this planet. We can't wait for the World Bank, National Governments or the UN to do it for us - we all need to follow a co-ordinated 'business management' approach to properly address them. That's why the authors of "Developing a Plan for the Planet" outline an approach to achieving change which can be implemented at every level - government, business, community and as an individual.
