The World Region
Summary: Based on the World Bank's World Development Indicators and the Little Green Data Book, the green miniatlas complements the miniAtlas of Global Development previously published by the World Bank. The information in the green miniatlas is a quick reference for monitoring environmental performance across countries. And it links the environment to the broader development challenges of improving health, raising productivity, and fighting poverty. Topics are organized into five themes which capture the environmental challenges facing rich and poor countries today: a) rural space; b) forests; c) biodiversity; d) energy, emissions, and transport; e) water and sanitation. One of the great challenges facing both rich and poor countries is finding a path for development that improves the lives of people and preserves our environment. The green miniatlas seeks to raise awareness of the economic and social forces affecting the global, regional, and local environment.
