Audience_Interest_Guide: General Interest

This document is aimed at a broad audience, from the general public to
scientists who have an interest in global environmental change. It explores how
humans, interacting within social systems, affect and are affected by global

Responding to the need to document the interactions among human activities,
CIESIN commissioned 12 scientists to develop a Social Process Diagram which
illustrates the key human systems that contribute to global change.
