Strategies for national sustainable development : a handbook for their planning and implementation
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

Both Agenda 21 and "Caring for the earth : a strategy for sustainable living" recommend that every country should undertake a National Sustainable Development Strategy in order to mobilize and focus society's efforts to achieve sustainability. This book shows how the task can be approached, drawing on a wide range of national Conservation Strategies, Green Plans, Environmental Action Plans, sectoral plans such as Forestry Action Plans and comparable exercises throughout the world. It shows how such strategies need to be a participatory process of planning and action if economic, ecological and social objectives are to be achieved in a balanced and integrated fashion. The result is an invaluable guide for governments, their agencies and NGOs in setting about this crucial step.
