Abstract:
The latest World Resources reference is an authoritative assessment of the world's natural resources. The World Resources Institute (WRI), in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme, the United Nations Environment Programme, and the World Bank has developed this reference on the global environment with the latest information on essential economic, population, and natural resource conditions and trends for nearly every country in the world. The World Resources series is published biennially. World Resources 2002-2004 focuses on the importance of good environmental governance. We explore how citizens, government managers, and business owners can foster better environmental decisions -- decisions that meet the needs of both ecosystems and people with equity and balance. The World Resources database freely accessible and searchable on-line in the companion website, EarthTrends ("http://earthtrends.wri.org/"). The award-winning EarthTrends site also provides data tables, country profiles, maps, and feature stories about current conditions. In addition, the World Resources database is published on CD-ROM with mapping software.
