Sustainable Development in Crisis Conditions

Sustainable Development in Crisis Conditions Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the midst of great crisis, it is difficult to contemplate the future. In recent decades, determining what kind of future to imagine has been an ongoing challenge for millions of people around the world who have been subjected to war, terrorism, and civil disorder. While destruction of the environment has long been part of warfare, it has become increasingly important as environmental pressures have intensified in our time. Focusing on the challenges and issues that arise for those contemplating a way forward in the wake of catastrophic upheavals, Sustainable Development in Crisis Conditions takes a broad-based and integrative approach. What emerges is that the post-WWII reconstruction or nation-building perspectives are inadequate and inappropriate to most of the contemporary post-conflict challenges a successful response requires a sustainable development approach, and Sustainable Development in Crisis Conditions is a preliminary exploration of this complex subject.

Book News Annotation:

Cooper and Vargas (pediatrics, Oregon Health and Sciences U., and both public administration, Portland State U.) began this study long before the recent crises in Afghanistan, Iraq, the Balkans, Africa, and elsewhere that make it so contemporary. They began 25 years ago looking at the post-war reconstruction of Japan, then the implementation of the Rio Earth summit. They find that thinking based on post-World War II or post-communist nation building is insufficient to create a sustainable post-conflict development approach.
