This is a timely, up-to-date textbook and reference work on the environmental concept of sustainable development. It encompasses the vast literature on the subject in a logically ordered, readable style designed for undergraduate and graduate students upto Masters level in environmental science, geography, and economics. It covers the definitions and ethical principles underpinning sustainable development and shows how the concept can be used to promote the responsible use of natural resources. It describes practical ways of monitoring progress with indicators of ecological and economic welfare and uses economic-ecological modeling to discuss and illustrate workable policies of sustainable development. The book contains ten main chapters and an especially valuable list of references to the world's literature on this increasingly important, widely studied subject.
