About this book

Presents integrated knowledge and worldviews related to the state of: Earth's natural resources, human and cultural resources, institutional resources, and economic, financial and technological resources. It presents the vision and thinking of over 200 authors in support of efforts to solve the complex problems connected with peace, equity, justice, world stability and global sustainable development, and to secure perennial life support on the Earth. It particularly aims to forge linkages between disciplines as a means of promoting sustainable development.
This is a precursor to the Encyclopaedia of Life Support Systems, a dynamic web-based archive created under the auspices of UNESCO, consolidating the global dialogue initiated at Stockholm (1972), continued at Rio (1992) and Copenhagen (1995), and incorporating numerous declarations, charters, protocols and treaties.
