International Review for Environmental Strategies: Towards the Earth Summit 2002

The World Summit on Sustainable Development (the WSSD, also referred to as Earth Summit 2002) presents humanity with the first major opportunity of this century, and possibly the last significant opportunity ever, to make steps toward assuring a sustainable future for present and future generations. This edition of IRES invited influential experts to present broad perspectives in terms of sustainable development to contribute to the success of the WSSD.
