New ways of looking at ‘sustainable development’ in integrated and holistic terms
The latest research methods designed and implemented, with new results generated
Introduces readers to a new knowledge management system organized around topics for sustainability
This timely work has as its focus three interdependent challenges related to managing transitions toward sustainable development.
These are: mapping sustainability for global knowledge e-networking, extending the value chain of knowledge and e-networking, and engaging in explorations of new methods and venues for further developing knowledge and e-networking.
While each of these challenges constitutes fundamentally different types of endeavors, they are highly interconnected.
Jointly, they contribute to our expansion of knowledge and its applications in support of transitions toward sustainable development.
The central theme of this book is how to transcend barriers that impede the use of knowledge and knowledge networking in transitions toward sustainability.
Exploring ways to do so, the authors examine the potential contributions of innovations in information technologies as well as computation and representation of attendant complexities.
Finally, this book lays out new methodologies that contribute to our understanding of yet unexplored sustainability issues.
