A number of interconnected forces drive civilization towards a major transition in sustainability. These include the impending peak in world oil production, climate change, the erosion of most of planet’s renewable natural resources, and the struggle of developing nations to meet the basic needs of population and economic growth in a sustainable and equitable manner.

Boston University faculty and students perform a wide range of research in an effort to develop a more effective understanding of the impending sustainability transition. This research spans multiple disciplines, national and global scales, science and policy, renewable and nonrenewable resources, and quantitative and qualitative research methods. Some of the major research efforts are described below.
