State of the World
Worldwatch's flagship annual report remains the most authoritative "go-to" resource for those who understand the importance of nurturing a safe, just, and healthy global environment through policy and action. First published in 1984 as a compendium of issues, State of the World now covers selected sustainability topics annually, including urban development, climate change, global security, consumerism, and agricultural innovation.
Written by the same award-winning team that produces State of the World, the Worldwatch Report series provides cutting-edge analysis on an environmental topic that is making—or about to make—headlines worldwide. First published in 1975, Worldwatch Reports (formerly Worldwatch Papers) use the best available science to focus on the challenges that climate change, resource degradation, and population growth pose for meeting human needs for energy, food, and livelihoods.
From rising meat and seafood production to changes in the climate, the annual Vital Signs book includes trends with concise analysis, detailed tables, and clear graphs.
Vital Signs Online, a subscription service offered by the Worldwatch Institute, offers timely electronic access to the trends contained within Vital Signs, as well as presentation-ready charts and data spreadsheets.
