Ester van der Voet and Thomas E. Graedel Abstract
Concerns about Earth's sustainability, in a form desirable to human habitation and quality of life, rest traditionally on potential constraints to various types of resources. It is obvious that these constraints are real and, in many cases, problematic. Other constraints deserve consideration, however, especially those resulting from limitations involving linkages among the resources. In this concluding chapter, these limitations are discussed and the case is made for a research agenda that builds on them to enhance our knowledge of and approaches to the challenges of sustainability in the first half of the twenty-first century.
