Sustainability as a Trend for Competitiveness ChallengesMihaela Ștefănescu (2019-08-15) 'Defining a future development pathway through the lens of sustainability and competitiveness is a unique trademark of any free market. Going beyond this aspect, this book is an invitation to identify relevant correlations between the circular economy, trade, adaptation to climate change, land degradation neutrality, fair-trade, corporate social responsibility, culture, and gender. Among all of these sectors, we are currently witnessing various types of synergies. The key is to distinguish those adaptive solutions which are applicable to real-time changes. This volume scrutinizes the role played by the sustainability agenda in international negotiations, and proposes new perspectives on sustainable management. Through all its chapters, the book focuses on the possibilities to broaden our perspectives when defining policy recommendations.'

Cascading Challenges in the Global Water Crisis, Gerard Magill, James Benedict (2019-02-13) 'This edited book is a collection of essays presented at the 3rd annual endowed conference held at Duquesne University, USA. The conference series addresses emerging concerns and threshold problems about the sustainability of our planet. The contributions gathered here highlight the inter-relation of topics and expertise from the perspectives of science and policy, religion and ethics, and pivotal global issues. The book concludes with an ethical analysis of the multiple and over-lapping challenges to paramount concerns that require urgent attention and long-term resolution.

The book is written for scholars and students in a variety of disciplines and fields that deal with the earth’s current survival and future flourishing.'

Searching for Sustainable Development and Its Purpose: The Human Story, Pavel Nováček, (2018-11-23) 'This book provides a synthesis of sustainable development, formulating and promoting a lifestyle that would facilitate the reasonable satisfaction of the needs of all people throughout the world, be environmental friendly, and not exceed the carrying capacity of ecosystems. It details the “big picture” of the human story, discussing cultural evolutions and current global issues, including the influence of humans on the environment.

The text is, above all, a comprehensive and future-oriented study, mapping the potential opportunities and threats associated with development. It discusses phenomena that are both easily demonstrable and those which are harder to prove.'

The Perils of Climate Risk: The People and the Science, Carole LeBlanc, (2019-04-12) ‘This book provides the average person with something to do about climate change. Based upon the contributing authors’ years of technical expertise, and their participation in a second international workshop on climate risk, it concludes with a list of action items for the old and young alike. With a ‘systems thinking’ approach, the book captures the latest developments in climate change science, atmospheric data, and public policy from leaders in their fields, including a Nobel Peace Prize recipient and a Fulbright Scholar. The book continues the discussion from the first workshop, detailed in Demystifying Climate Risk Volumes I and II (2017), on environmental, health and societal implications; and industry and industrial infrastructure implications, respectively. While the news about the future of climate change is not good, widespread adoption of these principles could literally transform the world!'
