The Security and Sustainability Guide

Every year brings hundreds of the best new sustainability reports from hundreds of sustainable organizations.  Any one report viewed alone, however, does not do justice to the growing global emergency of too many people inflicting costly harm on the environment and human security in too many ways, despite many efforts at mitigation, resilience, conservation, and developing new technological remedies. This has been greatly complicated through the disruption caused by the COVID-19 emergency that has harshly demanded everyone’s attention.

This list of recent publications illustrates the great number and wide variety of the most recent, important, and timely global security and sustainability reports, 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 up-to date sustainability reports are the leading edge of thinking about many of the most important global issues.
