About this product
- DescriptionThis Handbook gives a comprehensive, international and cutting-edge overview of Sustainable Development. It integrates the key imperatives of sustainable development, namely institutional, environmental, social and ecomic, and calls for greater participation, social cohesion, justice and democracy as well as limited throughput of materials and energy. The nature of sustainable development and the book's theorization of the concept underline the need for interdisciplinarity in the discourse as exemplified in each chapter of this volume. The Handbook employs a critical framework that problematises the concept of sustainable development and the struggle between discursivity and control that has characterised the debate. It provides original contributions from international experts coming from a variety of disciplines and regions, including the Global South. Comprehensive in scope, it covers, amongst other areas: * Sustainable architecture and design * Biodiversity * Sustainable business * Climate change * Conservation * Sustainable consumption * De-growth * Disaster management * Eco-system services * Education * Environmental justice * Food and sustainable development * Governance * Gender * Health * Indicators for sustainable development * Indigeus perspectives * Urban transport The Handbook offers researchers and students in the field of sustainable development invaluable insights into a contested concept and the alternative worldviews that it has fostered.
