  2. Metrics for Agricultural Sustainability by Marty D. Matlock

    Most authorities explain sustainable agriculture by practice, such as organic or local. Several initiatives of US producers have defined agricultural sustainability based upon impacts on the supply network, from extraction to disposal (also called outcomes metrics). The outcomes metrics of impacts for sustainable agriculture are defined by boundaries such as farm gate, factory gate, and consumer use and disposal. However, these metrics have not been well described or inventoried, resulting in confusion and misuse of information. This book clarifies this confusion, by providing an inventory of the metrics for sustainable agriculture from cradle to the farm gate, organized by media and scale.
     

  3. Community Biodiversity Management

    By Walter Simon de Boef, Nivaldo Peroni, Abishkar Subedi, Marja Thijssen and Elizabeth O'Keeffe

    The conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity in the environments where this diversity originated or is being used, are issues which are high on the policy agenda. As part of efforts to implement this in situ conservation strategy, development organizations have recently created a common methodology referred to as community biodiversity management (CBM). This book is the first to set out a clear overview of CBM, as an approach to meet social, economic and environmental change.

  5. Evaluating Communication for Development by June Lennie and Jo Tacchi

    Evaluating Communication for Development presents a comprehensive framework for evaluating communication for development (C4D). This framework combines the latest thinking from a number of fields in new ways. It critiques dominant instrumental, accountability-based approaches to development and evaluation and offers an alternative holistic, participatory, mixed methods approach based on systems and complexity thinking and other key concepts.

  6. A Field Guide to Community Based Adaptation by Tim Magee

    The world's poor will be the most critically affected by a changing climate—and yet their current plight isn't improving rapidly enough to fulfill the UN’s Millennium Development Goals. A Field Guide to Community Based Adaptation illustrates how including community members in project design and co-management leads to long-lasting, successful achievement of development and adaptation goals.

  7. Principles of Sustainable Aquaculture by Stuart Bunting

    Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic organisms, principally fish, molluscs, crustaceans and marine algae. It has seen phenomenal worldwide growth in the past fifty years and many people view it as the best solution for the provision of high quality protein to feed the world's growing population, particularly with the rapid decline in wild marine fish populations. Focused on developing more sustainable aquaculture practices, this book provides an ideal advanced-level textbook.

  8. Diversifying Food and Diets by Jessica Fanzo, Danny Hunter, Teresa Borelli and Federico Mattei

    Currently 925 million people are undernourished and 195 million children under five years of age are stunted. At the same time, over 1 billion people are overweight and obese in both the developed and developing world. This book explores the current state of knowledge on the role of agricultural biodiversity in improving nutrition and food security through improved dietary quality.

  9. The No-Growth Imperative by Gabor Zovanyi

    More than two decades of mounting evidence confirms that the existing scale of the human enterprise has surpassed global ecological limits to growth. Based on such limits, The No-Growth Imperative discounts current efforts to maintain growth through eco-efficiency initiatives and smart-growth programs, and argues that growth is inherently unsustainable and that the true nature of the challenge confronting us now is one of replacing the current growth imperative with a no-growth imperative.

  10. Transforming Urban Transport by Nicholas Low

    Transforming Urban Transport confronts head-on the dilemma faced by a world wedded to mobility: the danger of continuing along the fossil-fueled path and the real paucity of viable technological alternatives which can be deployed in time. To respond to the dilemma, the ideal of urban transportation must be changed from auto-based mobility to systems of sustainable transportation in which public transportation, and non-motorised transportation work together to reduce climate change pressures, enhance urban quality and preserve life and health.
