Contents Notes
Consumption, production and technology -- Population dynamics and demographics -- Economic development -- Globalisation -- Urbanisation -- Key variations to the standard expectation to 2030 -- Climate change -- Air pollution -- Biodiversity -- Freshwater -- Waste and material flows -- Health and environment -- Cost of policy inaction -- Agriculture -- Fisheries and aquaculture -- Transport -- Energy -- Chemicals -- Selected industries -- Environmental policy packages -- Institutions and approaches for policy implementation -- Global environmental co-operation. This publication provides analyses of economic and environmental trends to 2030, and simulations of policy actions to address the key challenges. Without new policies, we risk irreversibly damaging the environment and the natural resource base needed to support economic growth and well-being. The costs of policy inaction are high. But the outlook shows that tackling the key environmental problems we face today -- including climate change, biodiversity loss, water scarcity and the health impacts of pollution -- is both achievable and affordable. It highlights a mix of policies that can address these challenges in a cost-effective way. The focus of this Outlook is expanded from the 2001 edition to reflect developments in both OECD countries and Brazil, Russia, India, Indonesia, China, South Africa (BRIICS), and how they might better co-operate on global and local environmental problem-solving--Publisher's description.
