Detailed description

The definitive report and only print publication to come from the World Life Sciences Forum -- the most important global event in the biosciences, backed by the United Nations and the expertise of 20 Nobel Laureates. The contributors are representatives from global companies in pharma/health, biotechnology, food and consulting/finance and numerous UN organizations such as WHO, FAO, UNESCO, UNEP, as well as NGOs and national authorities. Three volumes each discuss the most important areas in global development: human health, agriculture and nutrition, bioindustry and environment.
The result is a cross-disciplinary and international insight packed with facts not available from any other source. It includes the official recommendations from the interactive discussion sessions held during the Forum.
Of benefit to professionals and decision makers in diverse fields, and essential reading for stem cell researchers and stock brokers, drug manufacturers and politicians. In short: everyone who is professionally involved with human livelihood and well-being.
