In applying the innovative 'sustainomics' framework and identifying the balanced inclusive green growth (BIGG) path to achieve sustainability, this book provides a rigorous and practical analysis of sustainable development today. Developed and applied globally over the past twenty-five years by world renowned multi-disciplinary expert Mohan Munasinghe, sustainomics gives us an optimistic message: although our problems are serious, we can respond effectively by making development more sustainable, but only if we begin immediately. Sustainomics shows us the first practical steps in making the transition from the risky business-as-usual scenario to a safe and sustainable future for all. Some key features include: an explanation of the key principles of sustainomics, free of technical jargon; empirical case studies that are practical and policy-relevant over a wide range of time scales, countries, sectors, ecosystems and circumstances; annexes that provide mathematical and additional details; and an extensive and up-to-date bibliography to aid further research.

'This book on sustainable development is an impressive presentation of policy-oriented research by Mohan Munasinghe... In a trans-disciplinary spirit, but with his feet firmly on the ground and drawing on knowledge from economic, ecological and social disciplines, the author presents a set of well chosen and eminently practical case studies. These examples at various levels ranging from the global/transnational to the local, convincingly demonstrate the relevance of his approach.' Professor J.B. Opschoor, Institute of Social Studies, and Professor of Environmental Economics, Free University Amsterdam, The Netherlands 'This book is unique ... Munasinghe brings together a wide range of skills. As a respected and award winning researcher, his analysis is rigorous and well-documented. As a senior decision maker and manager with over 35 years of experience in the development arena, his advice is eminently practical. Finally, as a veteran professor with an enviable record of publications, he presents his arguments lucidly and convincingly. This text, written by a leading world authority on sustainable development, is an invaluable resource.'
