|Title:||Handbook of Sustainable Development|
|Authors:||Giles Atkinson, Simon Dietz, Eric Neumayer, Edward Elgar|
|Description:||This book has, at its heart, a concern with taking stock, twenty years on from the influential Brundtland Report (WCED, 1987), of the concept of sustainable development and its implications for the conduct of public policy. There is little doubt about the prominence of the term ‘sustainable development’ in contemporary debates about environmental and resources policy specifically and development policy more generally. Indeed, if anything the term itself has suffered from overuse alternatively as a panacea for all modern ills or as a meaningless catch-all theme to which all policy challenges (no matter of what complexion) are somehow inextricably linked. Nor is there consensus about what sustainable development is, which has led to another source of criticism.|
