Sustainable development is a masterful balance between the economic growth and nature that conserves land, water, plant and animal genetic resources in technically appropriate, economically viable, socially acceptable and environmentally non-degrading manner. Sustainable development neither hinders the social and economic growth of current generation nor exhausts the finite natural resources required for future generations to meet their own needs. It is a realisation of the truth that we are neither the masters of nature nor we have inherited it from our forefathers. instead, we are mere custodian of it for the time during which it passes to our children.Natural resources like minerals, fossil fuels, forests and water are finite. The excessive and wayward growth will only lead to exhaustion of these natural resources and decline of the ecosystem. We are living in a time when the effects of human activities are not only restricted to local and regional environment, but also have global consequences. With this background,volume 1 of the series presents a collection of selected articles on critically important issue of sustainable development being faced by the world community. The highlights of the volume 1 are as under: • An overview of sustainable development • Sustainability indicators and assessment • Environmental pollution and human health • Development of sustainable public transportation systems for Indian metropolitan cities • Tourism adaptation to climate change in the lenses of sustainability • Sustainable management of mircoclimate parameters during summer • Reuse of solid wastes to produce ceramic wall tiles • Investigation of fuelwoods' perspectives in Europe • Potential threats to coastal environment • Biofertilizers from oil palm fibres • Greener techniques for the extraction of dyes and pigments from plants • Ecofriendly biopesticides • Biogreases for environment friendly lubrication • Phytoremediationprocess to save the future generation • Nanotechnology and climate sustainability • Management of available resources for a sustainable future The volume boasts of 16 articles contributed by 40 authors representing 6 nations viz. Brazil, Germany, Greece, India, Malaysia and South Africaaddressing important issues related to theSustainable Development.
