Implementing Sustainable Development: From Global Policy to Local Action Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Implementing Sustainable Development focuses on the challenge of turning international commitments and policy promises into action. Using examples and cases from around the U.S. and around the world, it examines the successful and failed efforts designed to address the social, environmental, and economic dimensions of sustainable development. Based on broad research that started before the Earth Summit, Implementing Sustainable Development offers a practical and useful approach to identifying and addressing policy implementation challenges.

Book News Annotation:

There is a great deal of rhetoric and no shortage of ideas about sustainable development. However, note Cooper and Vargas (both of the U. of Vermont), there has also been an "implementation gap." Saying that "implementation is the art of the feasible," they present a feasibility framework for professionals called on to implement policy that allows them to assess the technical, legal, fiscal, administrative, political, ethical, and cultural feasibility of policy. The issues raised by each of these feasibility factors are explored in separate chapters.
