On 23 May 2014, Barbara Ward, the founder of the International Institute for Environment and Development, would have been 100 years old.
To mark the centenary, and to pay tribute to one of the first champions of sustainable development, IIED has compiled a series of quotes by Ward and her contemporaries, plus interviews and photos.
Ward was the friend and advisor of world leaders including two US presidents, several UK prime ministers, and heads of state from Africa and Asia. Time magazine called her one of the 20th century's most influential visionaries.
