Earth Summit 2002
'An extraordinary review of a complex and evolving dilemma. We should all set aside time to read it thoroughly'
NOEL MORRIN, INTERNATIONAL ENVIRONMENT DIRECTOR, RMC GROUP PLC
‘The 1992 Earth Summit was a real milestone in global environmental diplomacy. This timely and challenging book provides both a progress report and a compelling agenda for Earth Summit 2002 and beyond'
JONATHON PORRITT, DIRECTOR, FORUM FOR THE FUTURE
‘If the first Earth Summit was high on idealism but low on practicality, Earth Summit 2002 threatens to reverse the pattern. This vital pre-summit reader manages to combine the highest and best of both’
DAVID BOYLE, NEW ECONOMICS FOUNDATION
The success of “Rio+10” in Johannesburg in 2002 is vital for the world in the coming century. In this volume, leading participants, from ministers, UN officials, and NGOs present a frank view of the lack of progress since Rio. They set out the goals the international community must aim for and the means of achieving them. Earth Summit 2002 will be a key text and a catalyst for action for the huge array of organizations and individuals involved in environmental and developmental issues and the political processes surrounding them.
