Abstract

Sustainability is a characteristic of a process or state that can be maintained at a certain level indefinitely. Sustainability focuses on providing the best outcomes for both human and natural environments now, and indefinitely into the future. In recent years, academic interest and public discussion has led to the use of the word sustainability in reference to how long human ecological systems can be expected to be usefully productive. This chapter first examines the threats and then provides how the environmental threats can be assessed and mitigated.
