Item description for Global Environment Outlook 3 (F) (S) (Un Environment Programme) by United Nations Environment Programme...
"The Global Environment Outlook" (GEO) series are the flagship publications of the world's leading environmental organization. They present comprehensive and authoritative reviews and analyses of worldwide environmental conditions and trends and the policies and policy instruments available to address them. "GEO-3," which includes a CD, is published 10 years after the Earth Summit in Rio in 1992 and in time for its successor, the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg. It sets an action-oriented environmental agenda for the future. Continuing the global and regional focus of the series, it complements the detailed assessment of the state of the global environment set out in "GEO-2000". "GEO-3" examines environmental trends over the past 30 years to provide an integrated explanation of the developments that have occurred. It not only examines the state of the environment over that period, but also the full range of social, economic, political and cultural drivers that have brought about change. Highlighting human vulnerability to environmental deterioration, it assesses effects of the spectrum of policy measures adopted. From this retrospective analysis, "GEO-3" then projects future outcomes. It develops a range of scenarios for the next 30 years, from 2002-2032, with detailed exploration of the policies and instruments available at different levels for improving environmental conditions. Clearly organized and in accessible non-technical language, in full color with extensive graphics, statistics, boxes and quick highlights, "GEO-3" will be an essential tool for teaching and research as well as a vital guide for policy-makers and stimulus to future action.
