LINK TO OPEN ACCESS

Development and Sustainability aims to connect development and the environmental sciences for a definite purpose: enhancing the wellbeing of people and their environment in places where severe poverty continues to hamper sustainable human development.

While the need for effective action toward a greener and socially inclusive economy has long been evident, health promotion in the context of sustainable development has faltered.

'As a climate scientist with an interest in global problems, I found this book highly stimulating. It provides insights into practicing sustainability science and transdisciplinary research that have made me even more interested to enter these new fields.'

Noel Keenlyside, University of Bergen and Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research

'Achieving the shared goals of the international community calls not just for finance and political commitment – important though they are, but for fundamentally new ideas. This collection convincingly makes the case that transdisciplinary approaches to sustainability offer a matrix for such ideas.'

John Crowley, UNESCO
