Description

Widely recognized as a unique, authoritative assessment of the world's natural resource base, World Resources offers a comprehensive guide to the global environment. The new 1992-93 edition--sure to be the crucial background document for understanding the issues of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, which will rely on the World Resources Institute to set its agenda--provides a focus on human development and growth worldwide. It examines opportunities for improved technologies and better policies that could assist in achieving more sustainable economic growth, sets priorities for solving the twin problems of poverty and natural resource degradation, and examines recent trends in human development and environmental progress. The new edition includes a special focus on children's health, covering major causes of mortality, new initiatives to improve child survival, and issues in financing child health care. Other chapters cover environmental decline in Eastern Europe, sustainable agriculture in the developed world, forests and rangelands, energy and wastes, freshwater, oceans and coasts, and atmosphere and climate conditions and trends. With a complete set of data tables and maps, World Resources 1992-93 remains an essential resource for all concerned with the future of the environment.show more
