About the product
The GEO Year Book 2003 is the first in an annual series associated with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) flagship report, Global Environment Outlook (GEO). The report highlights significant environmental events and achievements during the year, raises awareness of emerging issues from scientific research, and presents indicators of progress towards environmental sustainability. Its topics are derived from a comprehensive tracking process between UNEP and partners. Using non-technical language, the full-colour report includes extensive graphics, images and fact boxes, serving as an important guide for policy-makers and a stimulus to future action in the years ahead. This valuable resource will inform, guide and stimulate action for the health of our environment.
