Book Description

The World Sustainable Development Outlook series has been developed to provide an overview of sustainable development, to discuss why it is important and to provoke forward thinking on the development of a more coherent approach to solving global problems related to sustainability through science and technology.

Outlook 2015 presents the outcome of various studies and researches in the field of green behavior and how it contributes to an environment in which information and tools are needed to make greener choices for actions that support environmental goals and tailoring policies to suit markets for a global sustainable future. This book includes a selection of the best papers presented during the 13th International Conference of WASD, held in Istanbul, Turkey, 1-3 June 2015. The selected papers attempt to demonstrate clearly the challenges and outline possible solutions and recommendations for adopting green behaviour in our daily activities. The different chapters selected have tremendous scope in both focus and source, covering a broad geographical spectrum including Africa, America, Asia, Australia, Caribbean, China, Europe, India and the Middle East. The main parts of the book are: Green behavior and eco-friendly decision-making processes; Environment management and sustainability; Climate change, energy and sustainable development; Transportation engineering and sustainability; Innovation management; Learning and knowledge management; Entrepreneurship and sustainable economic development; Business management and service sector management; Science, technology and sustainability; and Public health and food safety.
