1 ROTMANS, Jan DEVRIES, Bert Perspectives on Global Change: the TARGETS Approach
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1997, ISBN:0521621763 
ROTMANS, Jan. Perspectives on Global Change: the TARGETS Approach. (Cambridge): Cambridge University Press, (1997). Pp. (i)-xv,(1),[1]-463,(1). Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated blue and black glossy paper covered boards, white lettering to front and spine. "Human activity is undeniably affecting the rates of change of many parts of the global system. How this global change devlops into the future is vitally important, but modelling these changes requires a complex, integrated assessment of a wide range of disciplines in science and social science. This book describes the structure, assumptions, philosophy, and results of an advanced global integrated assessment model: TARGETS (Tool to Assess Regional and Global Environmental and health Targetsfor Sustainability). For a selective number of future directions, determin ed by different perspectives on how the world system functions and is managed, the model charts global implications in terms of population and health,enery, land and water-use and biogeochemical cycles. By indicating to what extent these directions involve certain levels of risks, a circumspect app raisal is made as to whether the chosen future direction is sustainable or unsustainable." -from the rear cover.
