As a result, the interdependence of the developed and developing worlds was also recognised. The challenge for the 1980s was to formulate policies for action which would integrate the environment and development in practice. In 1980, the World Conservation Strategy (WCS) was published by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), in conjunction with the United Nations Environment Programme and the World Wildlife Fund (now the World Wide Fund for Nature).

Box B Modes of thought concerning humanity and nature It is argued that society’s desire to manipulate nature, concomitant with an acceptance that the Earth nurtures our own existence, is inherent in the human condition. ‘Technocentric’ and ‘ecocentric’ refer to the two extreme positions. In reality, the distinction between these different perspectives is often blurred. As O’Riordan (1981) suggests, rarely is the world so neatly divided into two camps; rather we all tend to favour certain elements of both modes, depending on such factors as our changing economic status and the institutional setting or issue at hand.

Development and conservation at this time were portrayed as incompatible: resources were thought to be finite, and pollution and environmental deterioration were considered the inevitable consequences of industrial development. In conceiving the ‘environment’ as the stocks of substances found in nature, by definition these resources were ultimately considered to be limited in quantity. In turn, therefore, the global future predictions such as The Limits to Growth gave little attention to the social, technological or institutional factors which affect the relationship between people and resources (Biswas and Biswas, 1985).
