Beginning with a comprehensive review of existing approaches to environmental sustainability, this book takes the view that any articulation of environmental sustainability should refer to the indefinite future and have consumption as its basis. It critically reviews extant empirical studies of environmental degradation, and highlights the links with economic development - in particular the literature on the Environmental Kuznets curve.
Throughout, Jha and Murthy emphasize the need to develop a comprehensive indicator of environmental degradation related to a more meaningful indicator of economic development - the human development index.
