Sustainability Science: Promoting Integration and Cooperation


The Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, held in June 2012, launched a process to develop Sustainable Development Goals, which in convergency with the review of the Millennium Development Goals, will help define the post-2015 development agenda. This agenda will address interconnected global issues such as water, energy and food, as well as critical social needs including poverty eradication, gender equity, health and education. Sustainability science — an emerging approach of solution-oriented, interdisciplinary scholarship — provides useful tools, methodology and a base to integrate knowledge from social and natural sciences into policies, strategies and plans.
