Concern for the environment is viewed by many as a rich-country luxury. It is not. Environmental degradation has the greatest impact on the world's poorest people in the world's poorest countries. At the same time, poverty is one of the greatest threats to our planet's environment.

The second title in the miniAtlas series, the Green miniAtlas is an 'at-a-glance' guide to the most pressing environmental problems around the world. It draws on data from the World Bank's Little Green Data Book, providing a wealth of information on key environmental topics for over 200 countries and territories. Taking an in-depth look at such critical issues as agriculture, forestry, biodiversity, energy, emission and pollution, water and sanitation, protected areas, the Green miniAtlas is a unique and timely resource for better understanding the world's most urgent environmental challenges."
