Drawing on a wide variety of international scientific and technical assessments and policy reports, this comprehensive study depicts the linkages - both physical and biochemical - between important environmental issues.
It also discusses how interlinked, global environmental issues can be confronted in an integrated manner and how such issues influence our ability to meet basic human needs. See also trends, causes, social and economic consequences, technologies, policies and measures to mitigate desertification and land degradation.
Fully illustrated throughout, Protecting Our Planet: Securing Our Future is recommended for the wider environmental and policy community.
