Geoenvironmental Sustainability
by Raymond N. Yong

Geoenvironmental Sustainability focuses on such a society's geoenvironment and the natural capital that defines it.

Features:

  • Provides a detailed examination of what constitutes a sustainable geoenvironment
  • Discusses development and waste management impacts from the four major components: industrialization, urbanization, resource exploitation, and food production
  • Analyzes the basic elements that define the geoenvironment with regard to water and sanitation, energy, health, agriculture, and biodiversity
