Sustainable Development Strategies Book Review:

This book is a cornerstone resource for a wide range of organizations and individuals concerned with sustainable development at national and local levels, as well as for international organizations concerned with supporting such development. While the focus is on integrated strategies for sustainable development, the approaches and methods covered are equally relevant to poverty reduction, environmental and sectoral strategies, program development and review. Agenda 21 called for all countries to develop sustainable development strategies. For such strategies to be effective there needs to be a real commitment. In every country, government at all levels, the private sector and civil society must work together in a true partnership, in transparent ways which enable genuine stakeholder participation. The necessary mechanisms and processes need to be coordinated to enable continuous learning and improvement. This resource book provides flexible, non-prescriptive guidance on how to develop, assess and implement national sustainable development strategies. It sets out principles and ideas on process and methods, and suggests how these can be used. It is based on an analysis of past and current practice, drawing directly from experience in both developed and developing countries. Following a discussion of the nature and challeges of sustainable development and the need for strategic responses to them, the heart of the book covers the main tasks in strategy processes. Individual chapters offer a rich range of guidance, ideas and case studies on: * The nature of sustainable development strategies and current practice * Key steps in starting, managing and improving sustainable development strategies * Analysis of and for sustainable development * Participation for sustainable development * Information, education and communications * Strategy decision-making frameworks and procedures * The financial basis for strategies * Monitoring and evaluation systems.

Pioneering Family Firms Sustainable Development Strategies Book Review:

This book describes the sustainable development journey of 15 business families committed to using their enterprises as a force of societal good. In turn, each family reaps benefits of high economic returns, while contributing to society and environment. The youngest family firm is in its 20s, while there are others over 100 years of age. Size, industry, locations vary. But all these business families share a deep shared commitment towards sustainable development, control over strategic decision-making in their firms and trans-generational continuity intentions. Family values embed their enterprises with a strong sense of purpose to achieve their chosen sustainable development goals. Professionalized systems and processes foster the development of capabilities, and partnerships with a variety of stakeholders ensure the simultaneous achievement of social, environmental and profitability goals.

Improving the Sustainable Development Goals Book Review:

Improving the Sustainable Development Goals evaluates the Global Goals (Agenda 2030) by looking at their design and how they relate to theories of economic development. Adopted unanimously by the member states of the United Nations (UN) in 2015, the goals are remarkable for the global commitment on a set of targets to reach by 2030, but also for the lack of a strategy of implementation. The choice of appropriate action is handed over to individual governments, some of which are limited by their lack of resources. This book explores how implementation of the sustainable development goals (SDGs) can be developed, especially in developing countries. The content, strengths and weaknesses of the SDGs are critically examined, alongside their relationship to ongoing academic research. The authors also investigate the actions of governments over the past three years by looking at the national strategies they have presented at annual meetings of the UN High-Level Political Forum. Improving the Sustainable Development Goals takes a critical but constructive approach, pointing out risks as well as possible remedies. The SDGs are seen as an opportunity for a global conversation on what works in solving some fundamental problems relating to poverty and environmental degradation. With the inclusion of a chapter by Tobias Ogweno, former member of the Kenya’s UN mission, this book will appeal to all those who are interested in policy analysis with a focus on development issues.

Handbook of Sustainable Development Book Review:

Sustainable development has garnered the attention of the global community when United Nations created Brundtland Commission in 1983 to suggest various ways to save the human environment and natural resources and promote economic and social development. Sustainable development is a way of organizing that an organization can function in the long term. United Nation’s sustainable development goals provide a framework to translate these into solutions through responsible business and investment by incorporating the ten Principles of the UN Global Compact into strategies, policies and procedures, and establishing a culture of integrity which are expected to bring out transformative change and create enabling environment for doing business globally. Thus, corporate sustainability, to a large extent, would depend on the capability of the firm to function over a long period with sustainable relationships with the stakeholders. The Handbook of Sustainable Development: Strategies for Organizational Sustainability provides guiding principles and diagnostic tools for transformation, generates knowledge about sustainable organizational designs, co-creating value with multiple stakeholders, managing diversity responsibly, ecopreneurship with entrepreneurial bricolage, sustainable business model, developing positive synergy, sustainability reporting and organizational transformation for sustainability which are pivotal issues to be addressed in management education and corporate world.

Planning for a Sustainable Future Book Review:

The federal sustainable development strategy (FSDS) outlines the government's commitment to strengthen the application of strategic environmental assessments (SEA). This will improve the consideration of environmental concerns when making economic or social decisions by applying the FSDS goals and targets when undertaking SEAs, reporting on the results of SEAs in Departmental Performance Reports (DPR), and describing the contribution of a proposal to the achievement of the FSDS goals and targets in the SEA public statements. Goals, targets, and implementation strategies outlined in the Annex give a detailed description of federal government activities under each heading, so for the first time it is possible to see all activities in one place. The FSDS describes in detail how departments will report using the Expenditure Management System and what their Reports on Plans and Priorities (RPP) and DPRs will look like using the FSDS goals and targets. It illustrates how the Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) will be used to report progress on goals and targets. The first progress report is planned for spring 2011.--Document

Implementing Sustainable Development Book Review:

At the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, political leaders from more than a hundred countries made a formal commitment to intensify efforts to resolve global environment and development problems and to strive for sustainable development. This volume examines how governments in the developed industrialworld have responded to the challenge of sustainable development since it was catapulted into the international stage. It focuses on central government engagement with sustainable development in Australia, Canada, Japan, Norway, the Netherlands, Sweden, the United Kingdom, the United States, and theEuropean Union. The study shows that sustainable development has been integrated into governmental idiom in most jurisdictions and has come to be associated with a series of changes to the structures and approaches deployed to manage environmental problems. Yet, it also reveals significantdifferences of interpretation and priority, and in the enthusiasm with which sustainable development has been received.
