It is over 15 years since Agenda 21 was adopted in Rio de Janeiro,
and over 100 countries have now espoused this code to use
sustainable development as a means of avoiding an ecological
catastrophe. However it is obvious that, even with this
commitment, there is still a significant lack of both understanding
and action.

Sustainable Development and the Limitation of Growth presents the
ecological, demographic, economic and socio-psychological
manifestations of the global crisis, and outlines the immutable
laws and limitations which determine the existence of all living
things in the biosphere. The book
contends that sustainability is achievable only on a global scale
and cannot be regionalized or isolated;demonstrates the need to move to a new way of thinking;shows humanity its real place in the natural environment;highlights the importance of global environmental stability.

This unique work argues for a change in the sustainable
development paradigm, the strategic nucleus of which must be
the conservation of ecosystems, especially forests, still in existence
and the partial reconstruction of destroyed ecosystems, as well as
for an understanding of humanity’s real place in the natural
environment and the gravity of the ecological threat before us.
