"Poverty is the incapacity to achieve one’s human potential within the era and society in which one lives. My research seeks to build capacity for sustained access to essential human services, with special focus on people in marginalized communities.” I define sustainability as “the ability to provide sustained access to services at the required quantity and quality over the required planning horizon at minimal economic, environmental, and social cost to present and future generations.
