Introduction Contributors Sustainability of Forests: An Attempt at a Biological Interpretation by Professor Dr. Peter Schutt Sustainable Development, Sustainable Yield Forestry, and the Meaning of Life by Jordan S. Tanz The Postmodern Forest: Images Differing by Dr. Steven Taubeneck Sustainable Development: What Do We Owe to Future Generations? by Dr. Thomas Hurka INTRODUCTION The conference was organized around the idea that sustainable development and competition are in some sense competing visions of our global future. Nowhere is this potential conflict more salient than in the forestry industry. Canada, and B.C. in par ticular, shares with Germany a concern for the fate of forests and for the industries based on forest resources. This conference sought to bring together academics from both Canadian and German universities to explore the ethical challenges associated with these competing visions. Those attending the conference had the opportunity to hear talks from a wide variety of specialties, ranging from botany to cultural studies to philosophy. Of the talks given, four were developed into papers to be included in this publication. Special thanks go to Dr. Schutt for making his speaking notes available for this purpose.

Sustainable development - what is it?
by John Elkington The business jargon-gardens have been working overtime. Think of the acronyms we have got used to hearing and using: CIO, CKO, CSR, EQ, HR, HSE, IT, SRI, SVA, TQM, and so on. Now there is SD, or sustainable development. Sceptics argue that we will shortly return to business as usual, but growing numbers of companies recognise the need to practice, as Anita Roddick’s book puts it, "business as unusual". But these days you are as likely to hear the message coming from the top echelons of the FTSE100 as from The Body Shop. The financial markets are also waking up. They are increasingly interested not only in eco-efficiency, but in business ethics, corporate social responsibility and human rights, all potentially part of the SD agenda. New York-based Dow Jones Company, for example, has joined forces with Zurich-based Sustainable Asset Management to launch a suite of some 100 separate sustainability indexes. Nor is the Dow Jones Sustainability Group alone: SD performance issues are increasingly covered in the portfolio screening for major socially responsible investment (SRI) funds. According to some estimates, the SRI sector is now worth over $2 trillion in the US and over $25 billion in the UK .

The Sustainable Development Division (SDD) endeavors to serve Africa better to achieve food security and sustainable development. To attain this objective, the Division intends to become a center of excellence for managing the inter-linked issues of the nexus of population, agriculture and environment and to play a leading role in raising awareness and guiding the decision-making process on nexus issues and science and technology management. The attainment of sustainable development calls for an urgent reversal of the current trends and thus requires:
  • Sustainable increases in agricultural productivity; Harmonizing population growth with level of food production; Better stewardship of the environment; and Utilization of science and technology to promote food security and sustainable development.

Through rapid growth in population and increasing demand for resources, the world is in danger of losing much of its genetic, species, and ecosystem diversity. To address this challenge and to increase understanding of the strong relationships between the health of the biosphere and the welfare of human communities, the Foundation has established the Conservation and Sustainable Development area. This area is dedicated to conserving biodiversity, to enhancing knowledge of how to use natural resources sustainably over the long term, and to promoting environmentally sustainable economic growth benefiting those living in or near sensitive areas. Purpose
The area's exclusive focus is on dealing with the problems of endangered tropical ecosystems. These are the regions with the greatest degree of species diversity, but are also plagued by acute human poverty and are often experiencing rapid population growth.
