Sustainable Development: Contemporary Issues and Emerging Perspectives

B.S. Bhatia (Editor) Dhiraj Sharma (Editor)
Synopsis Sustainable Development has become a strategic global goal. It describes development that takes into consideration the need to conserve both the natural environment and the world’s scarce non- renewable resources for future generations. Sustainable development can be viewed as encapsulating different ways of looking at varied issues and choices. While people interpret it in different ways, it is not a rejection of the objective of growth and increasing standards of living, but rather a view that understanding and right attitude can contribute to prosperity and at the same time advance the non-economic aspects of a better quality of life. Thus, sustainable development is an act of balancing economic, social, and environmental benefits through implementation of development policies, programs, and projects that will not enhance one type of benefit at the cost of others. Sustainable development also requires a major overhaul in the mindset, attitude, and behavior of the local people as well as of the international community. Though the present book serves an important purpose: to initiate debate and discussion on a new paradigm for sustainable development in the contemporary period.

The book is useful for corporate executives, managers, consultants, academicians, researchers and students in understanding the fundamental problems associated with sustainable development issued. It also focuses on the technological changes and trends that are revolutionizing the various knowledge areas for providing the solutions for sustainable development. The book is very useful for the students of Education, Environment, Law, Agriculture, IT, Business Management, Computer Science, Engineering and son on. It is also handy for general reference. In nutshell, the book is useful for everyone who is curious about the issues concerning sustainable development.
