Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This text provides a comprehensive and authoritative review and analysis of environmental conditions worldwide. The successor to GEO-2000 (1999) and complementary to it, GEO-3 describes policies and achievements in all areas of environmental concern since 1972. It analyses the drivers of environmental change and uses modelling techniques to project the impacts of different policies between 2002 and 2032. It is a crucial assessment for the Earth Summit in Johannesburg in September 2002 and for environmental policy and research worldwide.;It is clearly organized in accessible, non-technical language and supported by colour graphics and quick highlights. With full bibliography and index it should be useful for researchers, teachers, students and policy-makers in environmental science and policy, geography, politics and international affairs.

Book News Annotation:

Providing both regional and global perspectives, this United Nations Environmental Programme report assesses the changes to the environment and environmental policy efforts over the 30 years since the 1972 Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment. A significant section of the report is devoted to an analysis of different scenarios that may be seen over the next 30 years. The CD-ROM contains the full text in PDF format and a collection of the data used to produce the report.

Synopsis:

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.
