about this item
In preparation for the United Nation’s Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro in June 1992, this study aimed to detail enduring environmental issues that might or might not have been considered at the conference. Originally published earlier that year, Global Development and the Environment questions the compatibility of goals for environmental protection, natural resource consequences and economic growth in relation to sustainability with essays on important topics such as biodiversity, agriculture and population issues. This title will be of interest to students of Environmental Studies and Economics.
