  1. Sustainability in Action

    Sustainability in Action

    Edited by Jörg Kohn, John M. Gowdy, Jan van der Straaten
    Sustainability is a process that demands cooperation rather than competition. Sustainability in Action offers a variety of case studies that show how industry, managers, policy decision makers, regional planners and stakeholders cope with the sustainability concept and what it means to them. Although any decision is made in very specific environments, some general guidelines, methods and tools are available to link business with sustainability. The distinguished authors, from a rich diversity of backgrounds, present case studies from their own unique perspectives of the concept of sustainability. Each chapter contains several different approaches to its subject and these can include possibly technical and ethical views, the application of physical indicators or social parameters and even a holistic view. The case studies show that no universal framework for sustainability exists and that any process or conflict has unique features requiring specific answers. Learn More

    Rural Planning and Management

    Edited by Joe Morris, Alison Bailey, R. K. Turner, Ian J. Bateman
    Recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in the importance of the rural sector in integrated sustainable development strategies. This timely volume presents a selection of writings which explore the key issues in the debate on the management of the rural environment for sustainable development. Although there are considerable differences in context between developed, transitional and developing countries, the volume identifies common themes in the search for sustainable livelihoods, vibrant communities, environmental protection and the wise use of natural resources. It examines the challenges of sustainable rural development, relevant concepts, principles, techniques, analytical methods and management responses. The collection contains papers on topical rural issues such as sustainable agriculture, forestry, tourism and protected area policy. It demonstrates that, while there is convergence on the approaches to sustainable development, notably the emphasis on market mechanisms, institution building and participation, local solutions need to be found.

  8. Social Discourse and Environmental Policy

    Social Discourse and Environmental Policy

    Edited by Helen Addams, John Proops
    As governments and the wider public become increasingly concerned about environmental problems, the necessity for competent environmental policies is growing. The contributors to this highly original book attempt to demonstrate how the use of Q methodology can result in the development of more effective, socially sensitive, environmental policy options. The book highlights the history of Q methodology, a technique for systematically studying the subjectivity of individuals, and provides a brief yet comprehensive account of its theory and a detailed guide to the various stages of a Q study. The methodology is then applied, to explore the discourses concerning the relationship between society and a diverse range of environmental issues including, environmental protest, civil aviation policy, forest policy and land use options.

  9. Greening the Accounts

    Greening the Accounts

    Edited by Sandrine Simon, John Proops
    This path-breaking book shows how green accounting can be compatible with ecological economics and how it can contribute to the implementation of sustainability. It explores the history and methodology of green accounting and describes the state-of-the-art construction of green accounts in individual countries. The authors first provide an overview of the history of national accounting and its place in the debate concerning sustainability. In particular they address the social role that accounts play, the relationship of national accounts to economic traditions, and the relationship between green national accounts and ecological economics. They go on to describe issues related to the history of green accounts and the methodologies adopted, and discuss the Dutch experience with the NAMEA system, the use of input–output analysis in national accounting and the conceptual issues raised by green accounting. Finally, the authors show how green accounts are being constructed and used in various countries, by both national governments and corporate businesses. The book features new case studies of green national accounting in Europe, Africa and Canada, the UK experience in establishing green accounts and the process of greening business accounts.
