miniAtlas of global development
Close on the heels of the miniAtlas of global development (Spore 113) comes another mini-volume in the World Bank series, the Green miniAtlas. With a similar pocket-sized format, this little book packs an impressively large amount of information into its pages. It surveys the most pressing environmental problems around the world, providing key information for more than 200 countries. Agriculture features strongly, with useful facts and figures relating to quantities of arable land, fertilizers and irrigation. Other interesting sections contain information on forests, biodiversity, energy, transport and water. The well designed graphics help bring the data to life and a useful table at the end of the book presents a list of country profiles, together with statistics on how their populations affect the environment, and vice versa.
