Acknowledgements

The editors owe a great deal to participants at an international workshop, “Understanding Global Environmental Change: The Contributions of Risk Analysis and Risk Management,” convened at Clark University in 1989. This sterling assemblage of colleagues – Harold Brookfield, William Clark, Rob Coppock, Exequiel Ezcurra, Silvio O. Funtowicz, Gordon T. Goodman, Saburo Ikeda, N. S. Jodha, Robert W. Kates, Ashok Khosla, Diana Liverman, Giandomenico Majone, Walther Manshard, James K. Mitchell, Elmer Offenbacher, Timothy O'Riordan, Cheri Ragaz, Steve Rayner, Kenneth Richards, Galina Sdasyuk, Kirk R. Smith, Michael Tiller, Peter Timmerman, and B. L. Turner, II – first stimulated the undertaking of this volume. Many of them ended up as authors or coauthors of individual chapters – but even those who did not influenced the final product immensely.

At a crucial juncture, Roland Fuchs, then Vice-Rector of the United Nations University (UNU), encouraged the preparation of Global Environmental Risk and facilitated that institution's provision of needed support. Juha Uitto, Senior Programme Officer at UNU, carried through on this original commitment. More recently, Dr Manfred Boemeke, Director of UNU Press, and Managing Editor Janet Boileau have guided the volume through the final stages of production. We also salute Heather Russell, whose superb copy-editing is evident in every chapter.

At our home institution, many people have contributed generously with their time and talents. Anne Gibson, director of Clark University's
