About this book

'The Human Development Report 2007/2008 comes at a time when climate change-long on the international agenda-is starting to receive the very highest attention that it merits. The recent findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have sounded a clarion call; they have unequivocally affirmed the warming of our climate system, and linked it directly to human activity.' - Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations

'The Human Development Report 2007/2008 should be mandatory reading for all governments, especially those in the world's richest nations. It reminds us that historic responsibility for the rapid build-up of greenhouse gases in the Earth's atmosphere rests not with the world's poor, but with the developed world. It is people in the richest countries that leave the deepest footprint. The average Brazilian has a CO2 footprint of 1.8 tonnes a year compared with an average for developed countries of 13.2 tonnes a year. As the Human Development Report reminds us, if every person in the developing world left the same carbon footprint as the average North American we would need the atmospheres of nine planets to deal with the consequences.' - Luiz Incio Lula da Silva, President of the Federative Republic of Brazil

"Development cannot be divorced from ecological and environmental concerns. Indeed, important components of human freedoms-and crucial ingredients of our quality of life-are thoroughly dependent on the integrity of the environment." - Amartya Sen.

"No community with a sense of justice, compassion or respect for basic human rights should accept the current pattern of adaptation. Leaving the world's poor to sink or swim with their own meagre resources in the face of the threat posed by climate change is morally wrong. Unfortunately, as the Human Development Report powerfully demonstrates, this is precisely what is happening. We are drifting into a world of `adaptation apartheid'." - Desmond Tutu, Archbishop of South Africa.
