Sustainability is emerging as a key theme for research in almost all fields of research in the contemporary era. Sustainable development is the organizing principle for achieving human development goals.
The desired outcome of sustainable development is creating a society where living conditions and usage of natural resources continue to address the human needs without compromising on stability and continuity of the natural ecosystem.
