A pocket guide to sustainable development governance: second edition

Since the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment held in Stockholm in 1972, the reach of sustainable development governance has expanded considerably at local, national, regional and international levels. This guide was produced in response to the perceived knowledge gap on the history and dynamics of global governance for sustainable development. The updated second edition aims to provide necessary background information on global sustainable development governance to allow both governmental and non-governmental stakeholders to familiarise themselves with key issues more comprehensively. The guide is divided into four sections: global institutions for sustainable development governance; concepts for sustainable development governance; reform proposals for sustainable development governance; and processes for sustainable development governance.
