The present state and future prospects of the environment in Latin America and the Caribbean

Most studies of the region’s economy say little or nothing about the status of its environment and natural resources; few references are made to the environmental quality of population centres or to fluctuations in natural resource stocks, especially of renewable resources, despite their crucial importance for the region’s development options. The no more than moderate pace of the region’s absorption of technical progress, the intensification of its international trade and the declining value of the region’s products in the international marketplace have all brought increased pressure to bear on its resources.
