Towards Sustainable Futures

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. The 17 SDGs are integrated, that is, they recognize that action in one area will affect outcomes in others, and that development must balance social, economic and environmental sustainability. The volumes in this series critically engage with the contemporary debates and discussions around development and sustainability. The series includes interdisciplinary and topical books presenting new perspectives for a sustainable future.
