ComMod: engaged research's contribution to sustainable development
The question of how to conciliate ecology, economy and society was first raised in the 1970s with UNESCO's Man and the Biosphere (MAB) programme. The term, 'sustainable development', a product of the growing awareness that ensued, was defined in 1987 as: 'development that responds to the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs' (Brundtland 1988).
