Abstract

This book evaluates recent U.S. actions from a sustainable development perspective and, of greater importance, provides a roadmap or agenda for sustainability for the next 5 to 10 years. While most of us have at least a vague idea that the United States (along with the rest of the world) is not on a sustainable course, we do not have a particularly clear idea of what to do. This book’s 41 contributing authors provide a detailed and comprehensive answer to the big question: What does sustainable development mean for the United States?

Keywords: sustainable, sustainability, sustainable development, Agenda 21, Earth Summit, Rio Declaration, Johannesburg Plan of Implementation
