This book contains the proceedings of the third in a now-biennial series of conferences organised by the Wessex Institute of Technology around the urgent need to determine solutions regarding sustainable development before our planet reaches a point of irreversibility. The aggressive search for new sources of energy and materials, the rapid rate at which natural resources are being consumed, and the destructiveness of the resulting pollution are all having a negative impact on the planet that needs to be stopped, if not reversed.
The transdisciplinary papers in this book, presented at the Third International Conference on Management of Natural Resources, Sustainable Development, and Ecological Hazards, suggest constructive principles and policies for a way forward. The papers examine ethical, political and social issues, health, safety and risk, lessons from nature, planning and development, and new technologies.
