SSUD71-211: Economics of Sustainable Development


This subject considers the economics of sustainability from a broader base of analysis and evaluation than the traditional focus of economics. In this analysis sustainability pays attention to comprehensive outcomes of events and actions insofar as they can be anticipated at present and takes a longer term view of the process and results in the community. It examines the environmental aspect with the ecological footprint, environmental issues and includes social factors embodied in the triple bottom linestandards for urban and community effects.
