Handbook on the Governance of Sustainable Development

About the eBook

This Handbook brings together state-of-the-art contributions and international insights outlining the key theoretical developments and empirical findings related to sustainable development and governance. Providing both an overview and deep dive into the topic, it demonstrates how the concept of sustainable development and governance has led to multiple responses in both the academic and policy world from a theoretical, conceptual and operational viewpoint.

Drawing on a wide range of perspectives, leading contributors examine global research on the governance of sustainable development, spanning disciplines including politics, public policy, international relations, environmental science and human geography. Providing an in-depth examination of current ongoing challenges such as climate change, trade and poverty, the Handbook investigates both collaborative approaches for sustainable development governance and policy innovation and integration. Furthermore, chapters utilise global case studies in action, exploring governance by international and non-government organisations and illustrating their key findings.

Providing an interdisciplinary perspective, this Handbook will be a critical resource for research students of sustainable development and environmental governance as well as established researchers in the field. Scholars of politics and public policy will find the case studies informative and illuminating.
