World resources 2002-2004 : decisions for the earth : balance, voice, and power

United Nations Environment Programme (2003)

World Resources 2002-2004 examines how we make environmental decisions and who makes them, which is the process of environmental governance. The report argues that better environmental governance is one of the most direct routes to fairer and more sustainable use of natural resources. Decisions made with greater participation and greater knowledge of natural systems-decisions for the Earth-can help to reverse the loss of forest, the decline of soil fertility, and the pollution of air and water that reflect our past failures.
