Description

This positive forward looking series builds on the issues raised at the Earth Summit (1992), and considers how we can accommodate the needs of people while looking at how to manage and preserve the world in which we live. Each title considers issues central to sustainable development, such as using renewable resources and curbing pollution, and relates them to the specific topic area of each book. Case studies featured throughout each title show how sustainable practices are currently used in communities around the world. An attractive layout and full colour photographs clearly illustrate the issues being discussed.
