Institutionalising Sustainable Development

image of Institutionalising Sustainable Development

Achieving sustainable development depends on good governance practices, particularly the effective implementation of national sustainable development strategies which integrate government decision-making in the economic, environmental and social spheres. This volume contains recommendations for the true “institutionalisation” of sustainable development.  Institutionalisation will embed the concept in government operations for the long-term and will reduce the vulnerability of sustainable development aims to shorter-term political objectives.




Sustainable development is a concept encompassing a wide range of economic, social and environmental issues. Effective implementation of sustainable development objectives is an institutional challenge with which all governments are struggling. The sustainability challenges facing developed and developing countries are enormous, but as many of these challenges are common to several countries, we can share our experiences and best practices and learn from each other through workshops such as this one.
