UNEP publication
Cultural and Spiritual Values of Biodiversity
A complementary contribution to the global biodiversity assessment
Monday 30 December 2002, by Web Team

Weaving together philosophical, historical, legal, scientific and personal viewpoints, this book gives a rich sample of the vast web that makes up our cultural, spiritual and social diversity.

The volume highlights the central importance of cultural and spiritual values in the appreciation and preservation of all life and argues that these values give us a true reflection of worth. It demonstrates how many cultures see Nature as an extension of society, and how sensitive stewardship is an integral part of the exercise.

"This publication will convince readers that we must preserve the life-sustaining customs of humanity’s diverse societies and weave them into a resilient fabric that will protect the sanctity of all life" Klaus Toepfer, UNEP Executive Director

750pp, Edited by Darrell Addison Posey and Published by ITP on behalf of UNEP 2000

Available from: Intermediate Technology Publications and SMI
