State of the Tropics

Key institutions partner in the analysis of a range of environmental, social and economic indicators to answer the question whether life in the Tropics is getting better. The resulting 2014 report provides the first in-depth, objective assessment of the Tropics as an environmental and geopolitical entity in its own right. Drawing on the knowledge, experience and diverse backgrounds of leading institutions the report assesses the state of the region and provide a foundation for policy makers, geopolitical analysts and other stakeholders to examine in greater detail the tropics and the major issues affecting it.
