Summary Presents an overview of the ways in which sustainability is charted worldwide including basic concepts, such as quantitative versus qualitative data, citizen science, or the weak versus strong sustainability debate. Examines how indicators in specific areas (air pollution, fisheries, agriculture and mining, for instance) have been applied (or not) to different regions.
