This volume contains a collection of surveys of the most important issues in formal - both theoretical and applied - analysis of sustainable development. Although the literature on the various aspects of sustainable development is very large, a systematic account of modelling of sustainable development - of which there are already many examples available - is largely lacking. This book contains sixteen contributions grouped under four headings: Theoretical Approaches', Empirical Testing and Delinking', Measurement and Implementation', and Policy and the International Dimension'. From a modelling perspective, the problem of growth, trade and sustainability requires some kind of integration of theories and models on international trade, location theory, international policy coordination, economic growth and development, and resource and ecological processes. The general lesson emanating from this book is that we need to go beyond partial approaches.
