Item description for Sharing the Planet: Population-Consumption-Species: Science and Ethics for a Sustainable and Equitable World by Bob Van Der Zwaan, Arthur Petersen & B. Van Der Zwaan...
Some major environmental and development problems - such as the loss of species, climate change and human poverty - have significantly worsened over the last decade of the 20th century. The outcomes of the World Summit on Sustainable Development, held in Johannesburg in 2002, make many pessimistic about our capacity to solve these problems. One of the main problems is the rapid, human-induced, loss of species. This book assesses various specific biodiversity-related features in detail, while attempting not to lose track of the sustainability problem at large. Moreover, the purpose is to formulate realistic strategies that can contribute to bringing about changes in the international policy arena necessary for reaching a sustainable and equitable world.
