Paul and Anne Ehrlich: Co-winners 1994
Anne and Paul Ehrlich are leading authorities on the issue of population and the environment. They have been an intellectual force whose works have had an unparalleled impact on the field of environmental science and policy. For more than a quarter of a century, they have systematically traced environmental deterioration to its root causes, projected the probable consequences of continued deterioration and proposed and analyzed the relative merits of alternative solutions. The Ehrlichs have always stressed the devastating impact of overconsumption in industrialized nations.
The Ehrlichs were awarded the Prize for greatly improving the quality of life on this planet, with their insightful analysis and articulate communication of environmental, social, scientific, economic and development issues.
Both the Ehrlichs and Dr. Swaminathan believe that gender equity is fundamental to the whole population issue. They have long emphasized the critical need to empower women, giving access to health care, education and economic opportunities.
