Summary This book contains the proceedings of the international workshop on global sustainability held in Benevento, Italy, on February 2014. The proceedings consist of 10 invited and contributed papers related to the broad range of aspects of sustainability in a global scenario including food safety, monitoring, soil mapping, healthcare, territorial intelligence, local food production, greenhouse gas emissions, renewable energy sources, integrated development, sustainability strategies, "smart" bio-territories, replete with case studies. This book aims to provide the perspective of the diverse problems in global sustainability, and the many disciplines that could work together in achieving it. The workshop itself led to the signing of international agreements for the protection and enhancement of endangered species in the area of North Africa.
