It is widely recognized that sustainable development can only be achieved if environmental, economic and social issues are combined in development plans, policies and programmes. This book examines the integrated approach to the development process, and analyses the theory and practice of integrating assessment techniques and decision-making.

The editors begin by presenting a comprehensive introduction to integrated appraisal in development strategies as well as outlining issues which are important to the future understanding and practical application of integrated appraisal. A group of authors from a range of disciplinary and country backgrounds then present alternative perspectives and methods of an integrated approach to sustainable development, and apply integrated appraisal to a variety of case studies from developing and transitional countries.

This book will be warmly welcomed by development policymakers and consultants in government and non-government organizations as well as academics and postgraduates working in the fields of economics, development and environmental studies.
‘. . . a valuable volume for a wide audience, including environmental researchers, teachers, policymakers, consultants, and project managers. Sustainable Development and Integrated Appraisal in a Developing World tackles a very real problem in a lucid and readable manner.’
