Vol 2 No 4 - Strategies for Tomorrow's World

Issued: 1993 (36 pages)

People & the Planet aired a new approach to planning for the future in this issue. Pioneered by the World Conservation Union among others, it called on countries to devise ‘national sustainable development strategies’. This approach has made headway and informs the UN Sustainable Development Goals to be set out globally in 2015 – to replace the Millennium Development Goals. How such an approach can work in practice at local, regional and national levels is explored in the magazine with first-hand reports from Nepal, the Caribbean, British Colombia and Ethiopia.
