Global Trends in Environment and Development. Presentation Set [Slides].
World Resources Inst., Washington, DC.
This 50 slide set of presentation graphs and maps illustrates some of the major conditions and trends in population, agriculture, biodiversity, forests, water resources, energy, climate, and social and economic development that determine the state of the world's environment. Graphs and maps can be used by those in academic, professional, and advocacy settings to help viewers visualize, understand, compare, and contrast information. The set is based on data collected and compiled for 176 countries by the World Resources Institute and gives a broad picture of trends over 20 years. In a few cases, future projections are presented to show possible consequences. Designed for flexible use, the set can be shown as a unit with provided commentary; or selected graphs and maps can be used for shorter presentations on a particular topic. The maps are color coded according to a rainbow scale with green as environmentally "good" and red as environmentally "poor." Where possible, subsets of data are shown for groups of countries by economic level or by geographic region. (LZ)
