Sustainability

Sustainability is a frequently employed term and has many different meanings. Here, it is used to encompass the classical ideas of meeting the needs of present and future generation needs as well as the consideration of three-fold inter-related imperatives (environment, social, economic). It is also understood “…as a process, instead of an end product, a dynamic process that requires adaptive capacity for societies to deal with change” (Berkes et al., 2003, p. 2).
