Posted by the Foreign Policy in Focus gateway, this special report examines the deterioration of the environment since the promises for global environmental improvement made at the 1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED or the "Earth Summit"). Authored by the Executive Director of the Center for International Environmental Law, David Hunter, the report considers why the global environment continues to worsen and what global changes are necessary to reverse this slide. Reasonable rather than polemical, the report offers substantial statistics (easily accessed from a short menu on the table of contents) documenting the state of the environment and proffers concrete suggestions concerning US-supported geopolitical change and integration of environmental needs with those of the global economy. The report will be published as an essay in Global Focus: U.S. Foreign Policy at the Turn of the Millenium, forthcoming from St. Martin's Press in early 2000.
