Uitgebreide omschrijving

The impact of development needs to be considered beyond the narrow focus of economic, ecological or social concerns. This reader-friendly book is the first to promote a holistic approach to sustainable development. It gives readers a multifaceted approach to the area to encompass what is referred to as people, planet and profit. It looks at people, cultures, social cohesion, empowerment, education and health, nature and the environment, and prosperity and the economy, to help readers understand the fundamentals of sustainable development. The book has been written in an accessible way, and can be read with ease by those with no previous knowledge of sustainable development. The first part presents an overview of the conceptual and practical challenges in sustainable development stemming from human-environment relations as well as ensuing issues of inequality and insecurity. The second part explores strategies and solutions for facing these challenges. It presents case studies from all over the world and draws on many disciplines to investigate topics such as climate change, energy, technology, political and economic instruments, and sustainable business practices.
