Positive and negative impacts of implementing ESD on Australia’s economic, social and environmental systems.
Read Harding’s 2006 analysis of the challenges of implementing ESD in an Australian context of using recycled water – Ecologically sustainable development: origins, implementations and challenges.
You should now have an understanding that implementing ESD has many challenges including the significant challenge of integrating economic, environmental and social interests after our long history of "development" considering predominantly economic interests.
Many of the readings above have implicity or explicity referred to the role each of the economic, social and environmental systems and the interaction between them play in implementing ESD.
Review these readings and do your own research to consider the positive and negative impacts of implementing ESD on Australia’s economic, social and environmental systems.
