The scale of the global issues we are facing today: unsustainable population growth; climate change; energy supplies; water and food supplies; planet sustainability and biodiversity; extreme poverty; global health; universal education; conflict management and financing sustainability are more daunting than ever. Nevertheless these issues must be addressed–in a coordinated, global manner. That's why the authors of Developing a Plan for the Planet outline an approach to achieving change which can be adopted and implemented at every level – government, business, community and as an individual.
