er the past half-century, the idea of sustainable development has drastically evolved and rooted itself in the lexicon of international development. But what is it, really Are development agencies truly committed to long-term sustainable solutions to development issues Are we learning from our past successes and failures This book takes a historical perspective on these questions. The analysis begins with the Atlantic Charter, the creation of the United Nations, its family of agencies, and the international development banks. It reviews recommendations from international commissions and conferences, from World Bank and UNDP Human Development Reports. It comments on governmental policies, human and industrial actions detrimental to the planetÆs environment and natural resources. It studies the patterns by which biotechnologies essential to human survival and health have progressed over the past 6000 years, and the consequences of uncontrolled urban growth on food and health security. The author hopes that this book will be ôinformative and helpful to all who care about human suffering and degradation of the EarthÆs environment and resources, in particular to men and women who are newcomers to international, governmental, and nongovernmental aid and assistance programs.ö
