The World Federation of Engineering Organisations (WFEO) and its Committee on Technology outline on this Web site the roles of engineers for sustainable development. There is specific attention given to environmental protection and restoration with respect to energy use, natural resource extraction, and transportation. Worldwide progress toward sustainable development is considered, especially over the last ten years, and several accomplishments are identified, many of which stemmed from a 1992 United Nations conference. Lastly, several future goals are listed for engineers to accommodate basic human needs as global population continues to increase. A number of hyperlinks to reports and other documents are scattered throughout the site.
