State of the World 1984
STATE OF THE WORLD, WORLDWATCH INSTITUTE 1984
State of the World began in 1984 as a new annual project created to measure worldwide progress in achieving a sustainable society.
Sing a broad network of information sources, the report monitors changes in the global resource base (land, water, energy, and biological support systems), focusing particularly on how changes there affect the economy. A natural outgrowth of the Worldwatch Institute's ongoing progress, the book is published in response to a growing demand for policy-oriented interdisciplinary research.
