Authors: M. Ibrahim Khan and M. Rafiqul Islam (Dalhousie University, Canada) 
Book Description:
The word ‘sustainability’ is frequently misunderstood because there are numerous definitions of sustainability and not even two definitions have converging meanings. Instead of achieving ‘sustainability’, some of the sustainable development projects aggravate ecological and other problems, as painfully evidenced in numerous experimental projects. This book attempts to improve our understanding of what it means to be sustainable by exploring several different sustainability projects and techniques.
