Abstract

Global system for Sustainable Development (GSSD) is a knowledge-based networking system that supports decision-making in dealing with global sustainability problems. GSSD consists of an integrated multi-dimensional conceptual framework for organizing data, a multi-lingual knowledge base and mirror sites for improving its accessibility through the internet. As this year’s work we extended the system by constructing a new mirror site and a new language knowledge base towards the further development of GSSD.
