This book has the ambition of presenting sustainability issues in a simple way to students in the field of agriculture and the environment. There is much diversity in the viewpoints on the meaning of sustainability. Sustainability must be made operational in each specific context and scaled, and appropriate methods must be designed to achieve long-term goals for the environment, agriculture, energy and food security. The ultimate goal of the environment and agriculture is protecting soil and water to ensure food security for the growing population. This book discusses the integration of views pertaining to the sustainability of agriculture, the environment, renewable energy and food security. (Imprint: Nova)
