Indicators for Sustainable Development: Theory, Method, Applications

By Hartmut Bossel on October 5, 2001
In Indicators for Sustainable Development, Dr. Bossel, an engineer and leading systems scientist, shows that we need indicators for sustainable development that provide reliable information about the natural, physical and social world in which we live, and on which our survival and quality of life depends. He illustrates that popular indicators like the gross domestic product are inadequate, as they inform us only about monetary flows and not about the state of the environment, the destruction of resources or the quality of life.
