Summary Since the Stockholm Environment Conference in 1972 and the Rio Summit in 1992, there has been unprecedented public concern for the future of the planet, and a growing awareness that development needs to be sustainable. In celebration of their 30th anniversary, the IIED's most influential writers, in this volume, provide a perspective on three decades of development and green debates.
