Integrating Sustainable Development into National Frameworks

Policy Approaches for Key Sectors in Small States

image of Integrating Sustainable Development into National Frameworks
This book brings policy-making for sustainable development into the mainstream of decision-making at all levels of governance and in all sectors.



It builds on the 2005 internationally agreed ‘Mauritius Strategy’ which aims to implement the integration of sustainable development by small island developing states.



Designed as a handbook for policy-makers and planners in government, as well as business and civil society leaders, it covers seven of the twenty issues that have been outlined in the Mauritius Strategy as being important for the sustainable development of SIDS – disaster management; marine resources; freshwater resources; land resources; energy resources; tourism resources and trade.



It brings together best practices, policy options and development prospects that small states can pursue in order to achieve real progress in these fields. It covers the progress and experiences of countries in the Caribbean region, the Pacific region, and the Atlantic, Indian Ocean and Mediterranean region in their implementation of sustainable development in these areas. It also provides a useful point of reference and stimulus to policy-makers and their supporting colleagues from all sectors.

Foresight and Innovation for Boosting Agriculture

[The] Pacific region… [will be] a region of peace, harmony, security and economic prosperity, so that all its people can lead free and worthwhile lives. We treasure the diversity of the Pacific and seek a future in which its cultures, traditions and religious beliefs are valued, honoured and developed. We seek a Pacific region that is respected for the quality of its governance, the sustainable management of its resources, the full observance of democratic values, and for its defence and promotion of human rights. We seek partnerships with our neighbours and beyond to develop our knowledge, to improve our communications and to ensure a sustainable economic existence for all.

Pacific Islands Forum Communiqué 2004 – Auckland Declaration

There can be no peace without equitable development and there can be no development without sustainable management of the environment in a democratic and peaceful space.

2004 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Professor Maathai of Kenya
