About the product
Produced by the United Nations Environment Porgramme, GEO Year Book 2006 is the third annual survey of the changing global environment. It highlights the linkages between environmental well-being, vulnerability and poverty; records recent findings on the value of ecosystem services; and describes new research findings on polar and ocean changes that may prove a turning point in the urgency of our awareness and response to global change. A special feature focus analyzes the environmental, socio-economic and public health impacts of energy-related air pollution. The GEO Indicators provide an up-to-date, graphic snapshot of key trends in managing our planetary habitat.
