governanceforsustainabledevelopment

As the process of globalisation continues and power imbalances between decision-making institutions become increasinlgy apparent, the need for a critical assessment of the way in which we manage our interaction with the natural environment becomes ever more urgent.

 


Good Governance was identified at the World Summit on Sustainable Development as a critical factor for ensuring successful sustainable development. Thiss books builds on the briefing papers that were presented at the Summit, taking further the discussions of the WEHAB agenda (Water, Engergy, Health, Agriculture and food, and Biodiversity - the five international priority sectors highlighted by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan). This book is a unique offering on the role and reform of global institutions and processes, raising issues that have previously been neglected in international discussions.
