Green economies around the world? Implications of resource use for development and the environment - Zunia.org

Allow me to bring to your attention the following comprehesive free report on global materials activity.

"The report addresses three main issues:
1. Patterns of material extraction, trade, consumption and resource productivity in
different world regions and countries;
2. Connections between material use and indicators of economic and social development;
3. Links between material use and selected major environmental problems, such as
carbon emissions, land use change and water use."

This work is fittingly classed in the MILLENIUM category of issues for Global consideration
