«Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs» (Brundtland Commission, see Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sustainable_Development)
Achieving sustainable development usually requires a multidisciplinary approach in which technical, environmental, economic, societal and cultural issues are addressed. Research is needed to guide the development of appropriate sustainability measures, strategies and policy.
We invite you to contribute to this special issue by submitting comprehensive review or research articles.
