Note Editore

In applying the innovative 'sustainomics' framework and identifying the balanced inclusive green growth (BIGG) path to achieve sustainability, this book provides a rigorous and practical analysis of sustainable development today. Developed and applied globally over the past twenty-five years by world renowned multi-disciplinary expert Mohan Munasinghe, sustainomics gives us an optimistic message: although our problems are serious, we can respond effectively by making development more sustainable, but only if we begin immediately. Sustainomics shows us the first practical steps in making the transition from the risky business-as-usual scenario to a safe and sustainable future for all. Some key features include: an explanation of the key principles of sustainomics, free of technical jargon; empirical case studies that are practical and policy-relevant over a wide range of time scales, countries, sectors, ecosystems and circumstances; annexes that provide mathematical and additional details; and an extensive and up-to-date bibliography to aid further research.
