About this book

Continuing the global and regional focus of previous outlooks, Global Environment Outlook - 3 examines the environmental trends of the past 30 years to provide an integrated explanation of the developments that have occurred. It not only examines the state of the environment over that period, but also the full range of social, economic, political and cultural drivers that have brought about change. Highlighting human vulnerability to environmental deterioration, it assesses the effects of the spectrum of policy measures adopted. Finally, GEO - 3 develops a range of scenarios for the next 30 years with detailed exploration of the policies and instruments available at different levels for improving environmental conditions.
It is clearly organised in accessible, non-technical language, and supported by colour graphs and quick 'highlights'. With full bibliography and index it will be essential for researchers, teachers, students, and policy-makers in environmental science and policy, geography, politics and international affairs.
The contents of GEO - 3 are based on information supplied by a global network of collaborating centres, and numerous individual experts and specialized institutions from around the world, giving it unrivalled accuracy and authority. The reports sets an action-oriented environmental agenda for the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg and beyond.
The CD-ROM contains the full text of the report accompanied by a compendium of the data used in preparing it.
