Course Description

Why is it that many development policies end up being unsustainable? One significant clue is in the Three Pillars of Sustainability framework. Many researchers advocate looking at sustainable development as three pillars: economic, environmental and social, but what happens when policies support only one pillar, at the cost of the others?
