World Resources 1998-99 focuses on the critical issue of environmental change and human health. Drawing on the latest scientific data, this section explores how environmental conditions contribute to the current burden of death and disease around the world and how that may change over the
coming decades. World Resources 1998-99 looks at several critical trends that are changing the physical environment and thereby have the potential to influence human health on such topics as the intensification of agriculture, industrialization, and rising energy use. As in previous volumes, World
Resources 1998-99 also looks at the current state of the environment as it relates to population and human well-being, resources at risk, and consumption and waste. The book also contains the latest core country data from 157 countries and new information on poverty, inequality, and food
security.
