Prepared by a team of eminent economists and distinguished development professionals, Human Development Report 1998 reviews the challenges that all people and all countries face - to forge consumption patterns that are more environmentally friendly, more socially equitable, that meet basic needs of all and that protect consumer health and safety. This book marshals environmental, developmental, technological and moral arguments to present a critique of consumption patterns that are inimical to human development and an agenda for action to create an enabling environment for sustainable consumption for human development.
