The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential has been published since 1972 by the Union of International Associations (UIA). Originally it was published in three book volumes and on CD-ROM; now developed and maintained online here. The work was recently significantly developed through a collaborative project to provide a context for information on biological conservation issues with support of the European Commission (DG XIII - Info2000).
It has three core parts: World Problems (30,000 items), Human Potential: Transformation and Values (7,000 items), Strategies - Actions – Solutions (35,000 items).
The Encyclopedia includes the following databases:
- World Problems - Issues
- Global Strategies - Solutions
- Human Values
- Human Development
- Patterns and Metaphors
- Bibliography (issues)
- Integrative Concepts
