Note: this is a text-only version of the UNEP Global Environment Outlook web site at http://www.unep.org/geo2000
It dispenses with logos, thumbnails etc. in order to ensure faster download for those in a hurry or on 'thin' links. 
It does retain links to the full-size graphs, maps and charts, but these will of course take longer to load.
It is currently only available in English.
All the English-language text is also available here in web format as single a 1.1 Mb zip file.
