This timely and important Handbook takes stock of
progress made in our understanding of what sustainable development
actually is and how it can be achieved. Twenty years on from the
publication of the seminal Brundtland Report, it has become clear that
formidable challenges confront policy makers who have publicly stated
their commitment to the goal of sustainable development. The Handbook of Sustainable Development seeks to provide an account of the considerable progress made in fleshing out these issues.
The Handbook brings together original and
state-of-the-art contributions from internationally renowned scholars
writing from a variety of perspectives and disciplines. These
contributions acknowledge that there is no unified theory of
sustainable development and reflect the breadth and diversity of the
literature to date. Discussion encompasses the fundamentals of
sustainable development and intergenerational equity, and covers issues
such as: the capital approach, ecological resilience, population growth
and safe minimum standards; intra-generational equity; resources, the
environment and economic progress; urban and corporate sustainability;
green accounting and sustainability indicators.
This accessible, comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach
to the theory and practice of sustainable development will prove an
invaluable reference tool for researchers, students, academics and
practitioners with an interest in the field of sustainable development.
