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.



The Paradigm of Sustainable Development

Practically all countries have implemented the pattern of conventional development that follows a single linear line of economics focusing on growth of output as a function of production factors consisting of natural resources, manpower, capital, skills and technology. Gross world products has increased in the year 2000 almost sevenfold from that in 1950. Consumption of material and services has seen manifold increases as compared to a half century ago.
