Bringing jointly evidence-based techniques and in-depth case reviews of winning regulations and courses worldwide, Ensuring a Sustainable Future examines leading edge ideas to this important problem. In doing so, it addresses a complete diversity of environmental sustainability demanding situations affecting low-, middle-, and high-income nations.
