J. Elliott, "An Introduction to Sustainable Development"
Publisher: Routledge | 1999 | ISBN 0415191505 | PDF | 215 pages | 3 MB

Recent developments and interventions in the field of sustainable development have made this revised and updated third edition of An Introduction to Sustainable Development particularly timely as the world rises to the challenge of determining the prospects of sustainable development in the future. The book evaluates the progress made in the last decades of the twentieth century towards establishing new patterns and processes of development which are sustainable; in terms of the demands they make on the world's physical, ecological and cultural resources of the globe, and the characteristics of technology, societal organization and economic production which underpin them. The focus of the book is in the developing world where conditions such as rising poverty and mounting debt combine to present particular challenges of sustainability. The resolution of these issues is seen to depend on changes that include the operation of international institutions, the activities of government and private sector interests, as well as changes in the behavior of community organizations and individuals across the globe. Containing a wealth of student-friendly features including boxed case studies drawn from across the world, discussion questions, guides for further reading and a glossary, this text provides an invaluable introduction to the characteristics, challenges and opportunities of sustainable development.
