Sustainable Development Policy : Integrating the Sdgs in Academia and Policy (Hardcover)
About this item
This book demonstrates how sustainable development can be integrated into development policy. Although sustainable development has been on the international ageanda since the Rio de Janeiro conference of 1992, its integration into policy decision-making has been limited. This edited collection explores how sustainable development can play a more prominent and effective role in international development policy.
The first chapters explore how development policy moved from trickle-down to integrating the idea of sustainability, what strategies for sustainable development currently exist and how to evaluate and manage the progress of a process towards sustainable development. The second part of the book deals with different considerations addressed during development processes concerning sustainability: coherent governing, the design of social security systems, education systems and possibilities of fair trade as an alternative trading concept. The final section discusses the sustainable development process in the wake of a scarcity of resources like energy, water, and agricultural land require sustainable management.
This book will be of great interest to all students and lecturers of development studies and development policy who are looking for an introduction to sustainable development policy and its practical applications.
