SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT


Item #d95sep94

Environmental Indicators: A Systematic Approach to Measuring and Reporting on Environmental Policy Performance in the Context of Sustainable Development, A. Hammond, A. Adriaanse et al., 51 pp., May 1995, $13.50 (WRI).

Policy-making suffers not only because of a lack of information, but also because accurate information does not reach the right people. Economic and social indicators already influence policy, but what is needed is a set of simple and unambiguous signals of how human activities are affecting the environment. This report shows how they could be constructed and gives examples including those on climate change and ozone depletion.


Item #d95sep95

Business for Sustainable Development, Sep. 1994, $30. UNEP Industry and Environment, Tour Mirabeau 39-43, quai A. Citroen, 75739 Paris Cedex 15, France (fax: 33 1 44 37 14 74).

Intended to provide guidance on ways to effectively implement Agenda 21. Contains 16 case studies that demonstrate how businesses in both developed and developing countries have allied with governments and nongovernmental organizations for sustainable development.


Item #d95sep96

Capacity Building Requirements for Global Environmental Protection (Working Paper 12), J.F.E. Ohiorhenuan, S.M. Wunker, 26 pp., June 1995, no charge (Global Environ. Facility/World Bank, Stock No. 72213).

Attempts to distill a clear methodology for creating or enhancing a society's ability to attain environmentally sound economic development. Draws on the texts of the U.N. climate and biodiversity conventions, for which the GEF is the interim financial mechanism. Develops a Capacity Building Requirements Table that could be a valuable tool in designing and evaluating projects on environmental terms.


Item #d95sep97

Global Economic Prospects and the Developing Countries—1995, 108 pp., Apr. 1995, $12.95 (World Bank, Stock No. 12917).

Examines the rapid integration of developing countries into the global economy in the context of international linkages and of the increasing international integration of the markets for goods, services, and capital.


Item #d95sep98

Urban Travel and Sustainable Development, 238 pp., 1995, $48/FF260/DM79 (OECD).

The main conclusion of a three-year study by OECD and the European Conference of Ministers of Transport is that car dependency in cities can be reduced only by integrated approaches using mutually-reinforcing measures. Of a three-component policy package proposed, the most important is sustainable development, achieved through a mix of fuel and road pricing, traffic restraint, and land-use planning.
