"This textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to the green economy, using a strongly interdisciplinary approach based on natural resource management rather than treating it as a sub-set of economics. Examples of real-world case studies are used to illustrate how sustainable development can be achieved in practice. In this way, the authors provide a thorough overview of both the principles and practice of the green economy, drawing from a wide range of disciplines including ecology, geography, social science, psychology, sustainability science, environmental science, law and economics"-- Provided by publisher.
