About this book

Sustainable Futures: Linking Population, Resources and the Environment explores the links between population growth, diminishing resources and environmental challenges, and the implications for Australia's future. Written by leaders in their field, and based on presentations from the 2013 Fenner Conference on 'Population, Resources and Climate Change', this book is a timely insight into the intertwined challenges that we currently face, and what can be done to ensure a sustainable and viable future.

The book identifies the major areas of concern for Australia's future, including environmental, social and economic implications of population growth; mineral and natural resources; food, land and water issues; climate change; and the obstacles and opportunities for action.

Accessible, informative and authoritative, Sustainable Futures: Linking Population, Resources and the Environment will be of interest to policy makers, students and professionals in the fields of sustainability and population growth.
