We must recognize that as strategies and as decision making in the environmental sphere be based on data and information of various natures. In the case of the environment the indicators are quantitative with qualitative attributions. The historical context of indicators shows its complementary role in decision making to make visible a current condition that is a result of a historical process of practices and actions directed to the function and an common objective that brings in its essence the reflexes of previous planning. When analyzing a gauge is necessary look at your current portrait in historical perspective, which serves to realize a design ability to trends and future conditions to develop ways to track and measure your behavior in the timeline. For a maintenance of human and ecosystemic life we must see sustainability as a reality and not as a fable or utopia. The transgressions of ecological rules strengthen a developmentalist ideology without ramifications in the principles of sustainability makes imbalances more and more constant. Potentialities and fragilities should be considered to understand that the Ecological and Human wellbeing are cross-border and should be integrated in environmental planning and management process at all scales to substantiate the mechanisms of political articulation and generate information for diagnostic and comparative analysis in geographic areas diverse. In this special issue the Interdisciplinary will be fundamental instrument for a perception of concepts, reflections and experiences of disciplines that guide their attention on a single object and expose different opinions on Sustainable Development. This exchange of knowledge facilitates sustainability viability and adds better criteria related to social and environmental responsibility to the natural resources. This special issue is to improve the dissemination of advanced research in the area of Sustainability Indicators that can fulfill social and ecological demands. Original research papers are solicited in any aspect of environmental and sustainability planning and management.
