Balancing Act: Population, Consumption and the Global Environment.
Orzech, Michelle; Baird, Jim
The Izaak Walton League is committed to investigation and dialogue that contribute to a sustainable world. An understanding of conservation continues to evolve and mature as new science comes to light and is transformed, through civil discourse, into common sense policy and action. The information presented in this action guide continues a conversation about population and the environment that the League has pursued for many years. The guide is divided into five sections: (1) Policy Background; (2) Perspectives; (3) Questions and Answers; (4) Action Steps; and (5) Resources. Use of this guide can be a first step toward achieving sustainability of population and environment. (DDR)
