This list of 110 recent publications illustrates the great number and wide variety of important and timely reports concerned with global security and/or sustainability, and their sponsoring organizations. Most of these publications are handsomely produced, amply documented, and easily downloaded for no charge. Libraries may still consider these reports as “gray literature,” and scholars and researchers may be overly immersed in traditional books and journal articles, but, arguably, these timely reports are the leading edge of thinking about many of the most important global issues. Asterisks indicate especially important items.
Many of the sponsoring organizations publish far more than indicated here (e.g. UNEP, OECD, WEF, IUCN); selections below are judged to be especially noteworthy. Some organization names have been shortened so that entries can be confined to a single line.
