Tools for Mainstreaming Sustainable Development in Small States
Tools for Mainstreaming Sustainable Development in Small States provides a thorough grounding in bringing sustainable development to the forefront of policy-making. By taking a cross-departmental approach to national planning, more human and financial resources would be available for policy implementation. This is of particular relevance to small states, as they have limited access to resources and are by nature inherently vulnerable.The book is divided into four parts. Part one explores how small states can move from the Mauritius Strategy of Implementation (MSI) to devising practical national strategies; part two addresses the need for legislative change; part three tackles the social and environmental aspects of progress with MSI; and finally, part four examines methods for monitoring progress. Contributors to the chapters range from international academics to economists, providing both a theoretical and practical approach. Through case study examples from small states, this book offers invaluable insights into the complexities of implementing sustainable development.
