Since the establishment of the Institute for Environment and Development (LESTARI),
Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) in 1994 discussions, debates and commentaries
on all aspects related to and drawing from the terms ‘sustainable development’ and
‘sustainability’ have grown to a point when the Institute decided that the thoughts and
ideas should be put to print. The idea for this book began to take shape, in 2009, with
an aim to bring together the respective take and perspective on the terms ‘sustainable
development’ and ‘sustainability’, drawing from the research experiences of fellows in
LESTARI. The varied topics in this book could, in their own right, serve as seminal
works worthy of a thousand pages, but this book is intended to put forth a brief glimpse
of the current thoughts and ideas of the authors herein. Credit is given to the reseach
project of ‘Sustainable Development and Sustainability: Models and Measurements in
Malaysia. This book is but a brief introduction of what is yet to come. Already, another
series of discussion has begun to kick-start further tomes that will ferry ideas, theories,
concepts, approaches and techniques, drawing on the topic here in this book and on
subjects matters that lie close to LESTARI’s heart. It is hoped that this stepping-stone of
woven alphabets will serve to contribute to the enormous growing corpus of knowledge
on sustainable development and sustainability.
