Sustainability science, as described by the PNAS website, is “ an emerging field of research dealing with the interactions between natural and social systems, and with how those interactions affect the challenge of sustainability: meeting the needs of present and future generations while substantially reducing poverty and conserving the planet's life support systems.” Over the past 7 Cited by: Read online free Buy the book or Download the Free PDF Download the report brief (PDF) In October the Roundtable on Science and Technology for Sustainability hosted its first forum on federal sustainability research and development, focused on ecosystem services and biofuels.
This paper focused on the review of science education in Nigeria, its importance to national development and problems militating against its development. The paper viewed insecurity and corruption as major problems of science education development in Nigeria. As way forward the paper suggested life imprisonment for any corrupt individuals; government should invest on agriculture to provide job.
