Summary

­The World Sustainable Development Outlook series has been developed to provide an overview of sustainable development (SD), to discuss why it is important and to provoke forward thinking on the development of a more coherent approach to solving global problems related to sustainability through science and technology.

Outlook 2013 includes a selection of the best papers presented during the 11th International Conference of WASD held in London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), London, UK in the period 2-4 September 2013. The main parts of the book are: Sustainable economic development, Climate change and the environment, Public policy and development, Science technology and innovation management, Knowledge management and ICTs, International business and entrepreneurship, Finance and accounting, Services research, Transportation research, Public Health.

This book emphasizes the fact that the responsibility for achieving SD is a global one, resting both with the more developed and the less developed nations, if not in equal measure. Therefore, we must think globally but act locally. We must also ensure that we pass on to our children at least as much environmental wealth as we inherited ourselves. Moreover, it is hoped that the outcomes of this book will help develop a framework for the analysis of the role of academic and research institutions in achieving SD and help policy-makers to constructs an “ideal role” for universities and research institutions in DCs and outlines how performance can be evaluated in pursuit of the goals of SD.
