Abstract:

"State of the World 1986 reveals economic and ecological threats to security that military forces are ill equipped to confront. The report is the third in an annual series from Worldwatch assessing worldwide progress toward achieving a sustainable society. A natural outgrowth of the Institute's ongoing research, the book is published in response to a growing demand for policy-oriented interdisciplinary analysis. The 1986 report emphasizes the economic, social, and political consequences of ecological deterioration; proposes a resource-based development agenda for Africa; highlights innovations in water use and electricity policy; and calls for strategies to banish tobacco and enhance child survival" -- Provided by publisher.
