UNEP Global Environmental Alert Released for December: Measuring Progress - Environmental Goals and Gaps

Recently, the United Nations Environment Programme released a new Global Environmental Alert titled, Measuring Progress - Environmental Goals and Gaps (Dec. 2012). According to the 7-page alert,
[o]ver the last few decades, a great number of environmental goals and objectives have been adopted and a few success stories can be told. However, despite the growing body of norms and rules, the overall global environmental situation continues to deteriorate. The international community, having made very uneven progress towards the stated goals, needs to redefine the approach to improve the state of the environment and foster sustainable development.

Prior alerts are available here, dating from Aug. 2010 to the present.
