In this book, experts engage in an extended dialogue arguing for a comprehensive view of sustainability. They emphasize the constraints imposed by the relationships among the components, for example, how the need for clean, easily accessible water intersects with the need for the energy required to provide it. This book urges a transformation in the way we view sustainability, a transformation that is necessary if we are to plan responsibly for a more sustainable world.--[book jacket].

WEEE Recycling: Research, Development, and Policies covers policies, research, development, and challenges in recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). The book introduces WEEE management and then covers the environmental, economic, and societal applications of e-waste recycling, focusing on the technical challenges to designing efficient and sustainable recycling processes—including physical separation, pyrometallurgical, and hydrometallurgical processes. The development of processes for recovering strategic and critical metals from urban mining is a priority for many countries, especially those having few available ores mining. Describes the two metallurgical processes—hydro- and pyro-metallurgy—and their application in recycling of metals Provides a life cycle analysis in the WEEE recycling of metals Outlines how to determine economic parameters in the recycling of waste metals Discusses the socio economic and environmental implication of metal recycling

Municipal authorities and agencies around the world are striving to place their cities on the road to sustainability. Cities, as very complex entities, offer a constant interaction between people, resources and the environment. This makes strategic planning demanding and difficult. This book, written by worldwide specialists from Canada, India, Italy, Palestine, Peru, Spain and the Netherlands, is a guide to establishing a city on a sustainable path. It addresses sustainable urban planning issues by breaking the city down to its main components. The authors analyze and discuss such topics as: urban social and economic factors, including immigration and cultural integration, the gender component, the formation of slums, and social indicators the interaction of the city with the environment, including the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) urban and regional economics, including specialization and dependency, asset management, and community facilities the relationship of a city within its region urban planning, including urban sprawl and core revitalization housing and relocation, including such concepts as community participation degradation and measures to reverse this situation energy needs, transportation management, basic infrastructural services, the generation and disposal of waste, and water in the region a city’s preparedness, including risk analysis and contingency plans urban reconstruction after disasters The concluding chapters provide a ‘what to do and how to do it’ practical roadmap for implementing a sustainability program. "This volume belongs in the library of every serious city planner and policy-maker committed to building a future that works for us all." Mathis Wackernagel, Global Footprint Network

Before the transition in forestry can be made from conventional approaches of the past century to the ecosystem approach of the next, a consensus must be reached on the meaning of "sustainable forestry." Defining Sustainable Forestry presents the results of a national conference convened by The Wilderness Society, American Forests, and the World Resources Institute to help establish a common framework upon which to guide the future development of forestry.
