Environment and development in Mexico : recommendations for reconciliation by Jan Gilbreath Rich( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... The most readable, comprehensive, and well-informed account of how a key developing country, Mexico, built and upgraded its environmental institutions and policies and the positive influences in this process of economic integration with the United States via NAFTA. There are plenty of lessons in the book for the environmental, trade, and development policy communities."--Jose M. Salazar-Xirinachs, Chief Trade Adviser, Organization of American States. Throughout the 1990s the Mexican government substantially reinforced its environmental regulations and, with the help of other nations and international institutions, developed programs and techniques to address the nation's environmental challenges. But the policy gains of the 1990s have not been in effect long enough to compensate for environmental deterioration that occurred over decades of rapid industrialization. Mexico faces serious challenges in water supply and contamination, deforestation, and desertification. This book dispassionately examines the continuing natural resource problems that threaten to undermine Mexico's future economic development and offers recommendations for reversing those resource trends

Environmental sustainability index( Book )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Environmental Sustainability Index (ESI) is a measure of overall progress towards environmental sustainability, developed for 142 countries. The ESI scores are based upon a set of 20 core "indicators," each of which combines two to eight variables for a total of 68 underlying variables. The ESI permits cross-national comparisons of environmental progress in a systematic and quantitative fashion. It represents a first step towards a more analytically driven approach to environmental decisionmaking. The documents made available here provide in-depth details on the analytical framework, quantitative methodology, and data sources that underlie the ESI. The ESI is the result of collaboration among the World Economic Forum's Global Leaders for Tomorrow Environment Task Force, The Yale Center for Environmental Law and Policy, and the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN)
