‘Governance for Sustainability’ is the latest addition to the IUCN Environment Policy and Law Series. This book makes an important contribution to the on-going discussions on environmental governance, in particular by providing a thoughtful consideration of concepts that are critical to our understanding of how societies respond to environmental challenges.
A range of case studies are presented, which share experiences of people and communities as they address environmental issues and demonstrate a number of different governance models. It invites all of us engaged in environmental issues to begin a renewed dialogue on the issue of governance for sustainability in order to seek real solutions on the ground. The book is the result of a joint effort between the IUCN Commission on Environmental Law and the IUCN Environmental Law Centre.
