Abstract:

"This 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 economic, and calls for greater participation, social cohesion, justice and democracy as well as limited throughput. 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. Starting with a critical framework that problematises the concept of sustainable development and the ideological process that has led to the struggle between discursivity and control, the Handbook provides an introduction for each section written by the editors to guide the author through the key concerns covered in each section. It brings together new contributions from international experts coming from a variety of disciplines and regions including the Global South. This handbook offers researchers and students in the field of sustainable development invaluable insights into indigenous perspectives and alternative worldviews. The topics covered range from sustainable business, sustainable consumption, leadership, and de-growth to climate change, eco-system services, the built environment, environmental justice, conservation, health, sustainable tourism, resource management, religion and gender, and sustainability science"--
