About this book

This provocative book examines the broad and complex conceptual issues that must be addressed in order to achieve sustainable development. It begins with several case studies that reflect innovative policy and strategic initiatives within the corporate and public sectors, followed by a sector-by-sector analysis of specific opportunities and challenges within the critical resource domains of energy and global climate, human health, fisheries, agriculture, biodiversity, and forestry. It concludes by discussing how to measure and assess national economic and corporate activity, and whether humanity is itself capable of making the changes necessary to guarantee its own survival.
