Human beings require nourishment for the body, mind, and soul. To nourish tomorrow demands sustainable, clean and healthy food, water, air, healthcare, energy, living quarters, communities, and governance for everyone. This volume brings together twenty-four experts — comprising engineers, scientists, economists, architects, academics, and public servants from around the world — to share their views on how we could sustainably nourish people and the planet.
In this book, the theme of building environments in which life — human and non-human — can co-exist, grow, and thrive in, is explored from multiple aspects. From agriculture and food security to drinking water, energy generation, energy storage, waste management and treatment, to building for and encouraging biodiversity in marinas, to establishing resilient communities that can recover quickly from both manmade and natural disasters.
This book is a valuable resource for readers in the fields of biological science, agriculture, and sustainability. It is also a thought-provoking volume for those who simply want to know more about the complex issue of nourishing the world.
