Book DescriptionIn its second annual edition, The Little Green Data Book 2002 is a pocket-sized ready reference on key environmental data for over 200 countries.

The World Bank's mission is to fight poverty for lasting results. Enhancing environmental quality, improving natural resource management, and maintaining global ecosystems are all important steps towards this goal, and The Little Green Data Book provides a baseline against which to measure progress.

Profiles of each country include 48 key development indicators like:
* Population, Urban Population, Rural Population Density
* GNI, GDP, Gross National Savings
* Forest Area, Annual Deforestation
* Agricultural Land, Fertilizer Consumption, Irrigated Land, Food Production Index
* Mammal and Bird Species Threatened
* Electric Power Consumption, GDP per unit of energy use
* CO2 Emissions per Capita, Passenger Cars
* Freshwater resources per capita, Access to Sanitation
* Energy Depletion, Education Expenditure, Under-5 Mortality Rate

Drawing on data from the World Bank's World Development Indicators 2003 (see ISBN 0-8213-5422-1), The Little Green Data Book provides quick reference to the latest available environmental data for World Bank member countries as well as other economies with populations of over 30,000.

Separate tables summarize data for the World, by Region (East Asia and Pacific, Middle East and Africa, etc.), and Income Group. A helpful glossary defines each indicator.
