About this book

This volume establishes links between sustainable development, needs, well-being, and the capabilities approach that is central to human development and the United Nations Development Programme. By challenging the role of people in sustainability policy, the book's argument refocuses sustainable development on needs and makes it easier for people to relate positively to its core values.

Media reviews

'The collection of essays in this volume represents a significant and admirable effort to explore these links between capabilities, needs, and well-being and sustainable development. There is a fundamental connection between the two, but for too long the discussions of these have generally been kept separate.' - Dale S. Rothman (Denver University) 'The audacity, personal involvement and academic rigor of the editors of this volume make it a reference work for researchers and policy advisors interested in sustainable development and human flourishing.' - Monica Guillen-Royo (University of Bath) 'This book provides an informative first step to a hopefully very lively debate of relevance for sustainability science, developmental politics, ecological economics and (environmental) ethics alike." - Lieske Voget-Kleschin (University of Greifswald)
