Product Overview

As the human population continues to grow and places increasing demands on the planet we inhabit we face the biggest challenge of our time: how can we exploit the natural resources available to us - be it for water, food, or energy - in a way that preserves the environment, and doesn't compromise its long-term future - and that of our species.

Environment, Development and Sustainability represents an examination of environment, development and sustainability as three integrated issues that form the main ongoing challenge of this century.

Looking beyond developing countries, this book presents examples from around the globe, reflecting the way that development is not a finished state: North America, the EU countries and Australasia continue to develop (and conversely have pockets of awful deprivation), and environment, development and sustainability are as much intertwined in these regions as elsewhere in the world.

With contributions from technologists, engineers, natural scientists and social scientistsEnvironment, Development and Sustainability presents multiple perspectives on the issue of sustainable development. It celebrates the diversity of its contributors and uses positively this diversity as a resource for a more holistic approach to environment, development and sustainability.
