Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue comprises selected papers from the Proceedings of the 1st World Sustainability Forum, an electronic conference that was held on sciforum in November 2011. Sustainability and sustainable development cover environmental, social and economic dimensions and require a multi-disciplinary approach in order to examine, explore and critically engage with issues and advances in these and related areas. The 1st World Sustainability Forum facilitated debates on theoretical and practical investigations, and allowed participants to "make a difference" through on-line discussions. Besides covering the three pillars of sustainable development, other areas were covered including renewable energy self-sufficiency, energy return-on-investment, governance and sustainability, sustainability assessment and policies, and remote sensing for sustainable management of land and biodiversity. Papers selected for this special issue were subject to a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments and applications.
