This book, sponsored by the UN Environmental Programme and carried out by the Blue Plan Regional Activity Centre, reports on the Mediterranean's economic and environmental prospects over the next forty years. The study uses "scenarios" to explore the implications of particular types of change and choices of action, considering the environmental impact of various economic sectors--agriculture, industry, energy, tourism, and transportation--as well as the threat posed by urbanization and development of coastal zones. Featuring a wide range of statistical material presented in tables and maps, this work is unique in making comparisons between so many different countries on a range of ecological and economic variables.
