Sustainable land management

A pathway to sustainable development
ByVictor R. Squires, Haiying Feng

Creating a shared vision of a sustainable and desirable future is the most critical task facing humanity today. This vision must be of a world that we all want, a world that provides permanent prosperity within the Earth’s biophysical constraints in a fair and equitable way to all of humanity, to other species, and to future generations. (Robert Costanza and Ida Kubiszewski, 2014)
