Item description for One Planet Many People: Atlas of our Changing Environment by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)...

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. Objectives: The main purpose of this hard-cover, 332-page, large-format atlas is to document visual evidence of global environmental changes resulting from natural processes and human-induced activities. 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. A fantastic collection of maps and satellite images, which will enrich the environmental section of any library.

Reviews - What do customers think about One Planet Many People: Atlas of our Changing Environment?

presents a global view of change  Sep 10, 2005
This book deserves to be in many libraries. It gives a very visual and understandable commentary on many environmental trends around the globe. Under the auspices of the United Nations, the book lets you step back from any local environmental issues and take in the big picture.

Plus, the many colour photos of people in different societies interacting with their environments is a nice National Geographic-style photo essay. Hopefully giving you some understanding of other societies.

The book documents change. Notably in the satellite imagery of before and after sites for various events. Graphically showing extensive alterations.
