Reviews

"The publication of this Sustainable Development Policy and Administration is expected to contribute to the further development of the knowledge base that is required for programs on education for sustainable development. The combination of the sections on conceptual review, policy and institutional analysis, and sectoral cases of applications enhances its utility. I also believe the reader will benefit from the broad area of topics combined with key sectoral focus and geographical coverage of cases."
Klaus Töpfer, Executive Director, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), from the Foreword
