Looking particularly at sustainable Cited by: While access to technology depends to some extent on financial resources, it is not only a financial issue. In many instances, legal and institutional frameworks impede the development, import/export, transfer, and use of technologies for sustainable development.
Application of environmentally sound technologies (ESTs) is a way to sustainable development. “Environmentally sound” is a relative term however. Furthermore, environmental soundness is not an attribute of technology by itself but of technology.

The book provides the basic natural sciences that underpin the understanding, development and application of environment. Indisputably, it plays a crucial role in the quest for sustainable development. This comprehensively updated second edition explores the nature and role of environmental management, covering key Cited by: Environmental Technology for Sustainable Development You will be introduced to research and development leading to technologies that address environmental problems, and learn to interact.
Environmentally sound technologies, often also referred to as “clean technologies”, are a subset of environmental goods, which are defined as goods that directly contribute to environmental protection and climate change mitigation. To promote the diffusion and to scale up the uptake of environmentally sound technologies, the international regulatory and political framework for trade and investment in such technologies.

For instance, the research, development, deployment, and widespread diffusion of environmentally sound technologies can support more sustainable development.
Technology transfer has long been associated with classic justifications for participation by developing and least-developed countries (LDCs) in the global intellectual property system.
For these countries, access to new technologies, including environmentally sound technologies, is integrally linked to long-standing development. UNIDO’s Transfer of Environmentally Sound Technologies (TEST) is an integrated approach that provides industries and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with a combined set of tools to initiate a cycle of continuous improvements within their business operations to manage the transition towards a sustainable.
