Abstract

This book examines environment, development and sustainability as three integrated aspects of the main ongoing challenge of our time: as the human population continues to make increasing demands on the planet, how can we meet our needs in a way that is equitable and doesn't compromise the future?

Environment, Development and Sustainability is a multi-authored collection of 27 short chapters that presents a variety of perspectives on the issue of sustainable development with case studies drawn from around the globe. The book celebrates the diversity of its contributors, using it positively as a resource for a more holistic learning approach to environment, development and sustainability.

Three complete chapters (Chapters 1, 26 and 27) are openly available here, from within this repository (see links under “Extra Information” below), along with records of the 13 other chapters written by OU authors.
