Abstract:

Sustainability for Arizona, the 6th edition of Morrison Institute's signature Arizona Policy Choices series, describes sustainability as a defining issue and organizing principle for the state in the 21st century. The report provides real-life examples of sustainability in practice as well as advice and insights of 28 policy leaders and thinkers from the public and private sectors. With essays from civic leaders, ranchers, developers, educators, business leaders, scholars, and others, the topics span a range that includes water resources, education, historic preservation, innovation, health care, green building, and urban planning.

The report not only presents unique perspectives on sustainability's implications for Arizona, but also asks and addresses critical questions about sustainability.
