Earth Summit 2002 A New Deal

Synopsis

Earth Summit 2002 A New Deal by Felix Dodds

'As we start the preparations for the Earth Summit in 2002, 10 years from Rio and 30 years from Stockholm, we need to set targets and dates that are realistic to deliver the change that is needed. There will also need to be a debate on the international machinery to achieve what we want, and 2002 will be significant in setting out the direction. This book has drawn in some of the key people who are working to make 2002 a significant event' FROM THE FOREWORD BY KLAUS TOPFER, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, UNITED NATIONS ENVIRONMENT PROGRAMME AND CENTRE FOR HUMAN SETTLEMENTS At the Earth Summit in Rio in 1992, world leaders adopted a comprehensive programme of action for implementing sustainable development worldwide. As preparations for Earth Summit 2002 proceed, leading players from around the world present a frank assessment of progress to date. They set goals and describe mechanisms that will enable the international community to complete the tasks set in Rio and prepare for new challenges and opportunities. This book will be a catalyst for the public and political momentum required to push forward the global sustainable development agenda.

Reviews

'An extraordinary review of a complex and evolving dilemma.'


'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



'It is an incredibly useful resource for teaching and research, both in terms of the range of valuable information and the visions for sustainable development laid out within its pages. Compared to much academic literature, a spirit of unapologetic realism can be found in most of the chapters.'
Environmental Politics



'This is quite a technical book but for all who value the future of our fragile world, a necessary study.'
