Sustainability Indicators

This book recommends that sustainability be assessed holistically, including qualitative measures, rather than by taking a strictly quantitative approach. In this second edition, that perspective is shown to be well grounded in evidence. Bell and Morse examine the origins and development of Systemic Sustainability Analysis. They describe how this primarily theoretical approach to analyzing climate change has developed into a practical approach and how participatory methods have been adapted to work with it. They also provide an assessment of strengths and weaknesses of projects in the field of sustainable development.
