This book tracks and analyses important environmental issues, policies and trends over the period 1972-2002. It covers the following themes: land, forests, biodiversity, freshwater, coastal and marine areas, atmosphere, urban areas, and disasters. A special focus on human vulnerability to environmental change highlights the increasing risks and impacts on people. The outlook section of the report, spanning 2002-2031, uses a scenario approach to present four different visions of the future. The final section on options for action summarizes major cross-cutting issues and presents a range of policy actions aimed at strengthening the environmental pillar of sustainable development.
