Our publications provide an overview of sustainable development, discuss why it is important and promote the development of a more coherent approach to solving global problems related to sustainability. In doing so, a holistic approach is used to critically examine the interrelationship between the natural, governmental, economic and social dimensions of our world and how science and technology can contribute to solutions.
Although science, technology and sustainable development are the main focus of our publications, many other fields are represented. Our books are a truly global resource, which is reflected in the varied national and cultural origins of the contributors.
Most of our publications are FREE OF CHARGE to institutions within the developing countries and by purchasing a book from WASD, you are making a contribution to WASD and enabling a poorer student to receive our free publications.
We publish four popular book series, listed below.
