About the product
By reporting on the state of the environment through its Global Environment Outlook series, the United Nations Environment Programme offers an essential tool to help speed up the pace of environmental action. This first issue of the biennial Global Environment Outlook gives a snapshot of an on-going, world-wide, environmental assessment. The principal focus is a review of major environmental issues from a regional perspective, with an initial evaluation of policy responses addressing regional priority concerns. The publication concludes with a look to the future using quantitative modelling techniques.
