Title People, Numbers & Impacts
Author Compiled by: Pamela LeRoy. Editor: Robert Engelman
Affiliation Population Action International

Peer Review Unknown Review Process
Abstract "What follows is an annotated bibliography of recent scientific and policy-related literature on population and the environment, selected and abstracted by one organization concerned with the linkage. Population Action International is a research and advocacy group founded in the conviction that continued population growth poses substantial risks to human well-being, and that this growth can be slowed through policies that enhance individual freedom and well-being. Our selection of publications is based not on their agreement with these convictions, however, but on the literature's scientific rigor, factual integrity and attention to the linkages among population, consumption, sustainable development and environmental issues. We have attempted in brief abstracts to state as concisely as possible the essential point or subject of each publication."
