Volume in the UN Millennium Development Library that provides an overview of the challenges and strategies for working toward environmental protection at the same time as ending poverty.
From the publisher's announcement:
Achieving human development while overcoming, rather than exacerbating environmental challenges - such as the degradation of land, watersheds and marine fisheries, deforestation, pollution, and climate change - is an immense but central challenge to humanity. Environment and Human Well-Being presents principles upon which each country can determine for itself the most appropriate steps to take towards achieving environmental sustainability. The authors integrate cross-cutting strategies, present case studies and propose specific interventions and policy changes required to improve environmental management at the country, regional and international levels.
