Sachs on Defining the Challenges of Sustainable Development

During the Earth Institute's new Cross-Cutting Initiatives program seminar series, Jeffrey Sachs, Quetelet Professor and director of the Earth Institute, discusses the feasibility and challenges of sustainable development in the 21st century. During the recent lecture in Davis Auditorium, Sachs explains that the new century is widely projected as a potential "bottleneck period" -- due to such issues as population increases, biophysical restraints and the question of nonrenewable and renewable resources.
