Abstract

The Secretariat of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) asked IIASA to provide scientific support to the conference by examining the usefulness of systems analysis in: (1) identifying some of the important linkages among population, development and the environment and; (2) in helping decisionmakers in formulating and implementing policies for sustainable development. Part of the work of the resulting Environment and Development Study involved the formulation of conceptual models describing the socio-ecological system in which we live. Quality of Life was a central component of these models; it was concluded that the aim of development was: (i) to enhance the quality of people's lives, considering both material and nonmaterial factors and; (ii) to lessen disparities across social groups, regions and generations.
