The IAFOR Academic Review | Volume 1 | Issue 9

Editorial Committee Introduction

Welcome to Issue 9 Volume 1 of The IAFOR Academic Review. One of the central missions of The International Academic Forum (IAFOR) is to provide avenues for academics and researchers to be international, intercultural and interdisciplinary. One of the ways in which we do this is through our in-house magazine Eye Magazine, our various conference proceedings, our journals, and now beginning in 2015, our special editions of The IAFOR International Academic Review. In this edition we, the editorial committee, bring together a further selection of interesting contributions from our prior IAFOR Conferences with respect to the discussion of Sustainable Development and the Environment. Sustainable Development is ultimately about the interplay between people and ecologies by helping to meet the world’s growing resource needs economically, culturally, socially and environmentally in the most responsible way possible. It is also about not taking the environment that we all share for granted and making sure that our resource use has equity placed at the centre of its use and management. Not just for today but also for the future. The papers selected by the editorial committee for this special edition certainly reflect the international, intercultural and interdisciplinary approach that lies at the heart of both IAFOR and the global goals of sustainable development and the environments we work and live in.
