This yearbook consists of two separate parts: analysis and reference. The first part is made up of ten articles written by independent experts with in-depth knowledge of their subject.

Subjects covered in this first volume are ozone depletion, climatic change, biodiversity, endangered species, export of hazardous waste, population control, disarmament, environmental law, and sustainable energy development. The second part covers, in a systematic fashion, key data on international agreements on the environment and development, intergovernmental organizations with activities in these areas, and a selective group of non-governmental organizations. Some 100 organizations and conventions are included, each with a two-page spread devoted to them. This section gives information about organization/secretariat, resources/budget, policy measures or rules of conduct established/under negotiation, decision-making bodies and rules, and key publications. The section wil be continuously up-dated so that the information is always current.
