The human race is undeniably moving into an era of resource constraints; energy choices, water scarcity, food shortages, climate change, waste management, disparate population changes, and employment challenges. This paper presents and critically examines the prominent definitions and models of sustainable development in order to provide guidance for the theoretical and practical implementation of human factors for sustainable development.
