About this book

One Planet, Many People is intended for environmental policy makers, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, academics, teachers and citizens. This colorful and approachable atlas contains photographs, satellite images, maps and narratives that provide insights into the many ways people around the world have changed, and continue to change, the environment.

Special objectives of One Planet, Many People include:

* generating awareness of human interactions with the environment that alter the environment in demonstrable ways;
* providing scientific measurement of over-exploitation of the environment and consequences of such action.

To meet these objectives, the atlas provides:

* a collection of spectacular "before and after" satellite image pairs on various themes for 80 sites around the world;
* over 30 environmental case studies supported by narratives, images and ground photographs;
* and a compilation of recently released environmental maps.

"One Planet Many People Atlas of Our Changing Environment clearly illustrates that our ozonosphere has been threatened by human activities. It also shows that this problem has been practically solved due to the collaborative efforts of the different sectors of our society. We all need to work together to address the many other problems that affect the health of our planet. As illustrated in this atlas, we need integrated, interdisciplinary approaches to mitigate the adverse effects of human-induced activities on the environment".

Co-winner of the 1995 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work in atmospheric chemistry, particularly concerning the formation and decomposition of ozone.

"One Planet Many People Atlas of Our Changing Environment demonstrates how our growing number of people and their consumption patterns are shrinking our natural resource base. The challenge is how do we satisfy human needs without compromising the health of ecosystems. One Planet Many People is an additional wake-up call to this need".
