This chapter examines the progress in the development of peripheral economies Latin America and the Caribbean in resolving the problems of the biosphere, and whether new forms of development must be devised, first analysing the relationship between styles of development and the environment. Second, it considers the state of the environment and natural resources arising from this relationship, and third, examines whether existing policies and current international challenges might provide the region with a new opportunity for more sustainable development.
