A visual guide to the current state of the world's demographic, economic and environmental situation, its trends and future predictions.
Each spread tells a story with easy to read graphical presentation. Each topic is presented by clear world maps, tables, graphs and photographs. Through thematic maps it illustrates the extent and complexity of development patterns, successes and failures and comparative outcomes. It draws on the authoritative statistics from the World Bank's World Development indicators.
The content includes an introduction to the world bank development indicators and recognised world bank economic regions; 30 illustrated spreads of world mapping/text and photographs presenting current issues affecting the population, economy and the environment; extensive tables of facts and definitions and a topic index.
Key topics include
• The world's growing, ageing, mobile population
• Standard of living and access to health services
• Gobal economic development
• The effect of changing climate, sea level change and major environmental changes
Each spread has a balance of mapping and statistical information represented as graphs and/or statistical tables, fact boxes, illustrations/photographs supported with narrative text.

Praise for World Watch from the Geographical Association: Each lively spread is packed with up to date and relevant information, displayed in varied ways. The final section relates statistics to indicators of development and the Millennium development goals. It provides a useful glossary. The book is well organised into key sections that will support modern geography GCSE and A level specifications.
Dr Stephen Scoffham says:
I think this atlas is great. I really like the balance of maps, text, photographs and diagrams on each spread. Not only does this make the material engaging, the different media compliment each other and provide real ‘dialogue’.
