Development without Destruction : The UN and Global Resource Management Paperback / softback

Part of the United Nations Intellectual History Project Series series

Description

Since 1945, the UN has been actively engaged in conceptualizing strategies for both economic development and a sustainable environment.

From a broad historical perspective, Development without Destruction sketches the role played by organizations and individuals in the UN system in developing and consolidating principles of international law and international governance with respect to natural resource management.

Nico Schrijver highlights the UN's efforts to generate and implement strategies to resolve tensions between economic development and environmental protection, conservation and exploitation, sovereignty and internationalism, and armed conflict and peaceful access to natural resources.

Schrijver's thorough analysis is an indispensable guide to management of the critical environmental issues on today's global agenda.
