During the 1992 United Nations Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 178 countries adopted Agenda 21 as a non binding global environmental plan for sustainable development.The document underscored the important role of States in the implementation of sustainable development at the national level and also serves as a blueprint for governments in the implementation of sustainable development.This work examines the implementation of sustainable development in Nigeria within the framework of Agenda 21. It suggests inter alia that corruption and insufficient public participation are some of the major obstacles to the implementation of the sustainable development objectives of Agenda 21 in Nigeria. To enhance the realization of the objectives of Agenda 21 in Nigeria, the author recommends inter alia the establishment of a constitutional right to sustainable development alongside inter generational rights and the recognition of the public trust doctrine as well as the adoption of budget analysis. This work will be useful to Students of development law.It will also be of interest to any person interested in learning about the implementation of sustainable development in Nigeria.

HIV/AIDS is a major development challenge that threats to reverse the development gains achieved over the years of investments. It further threatens to derail every conceivable strategy for future development. However, there is still some hope if institutions, individuals, sectors, donors, governments and development actors accept the exceptionality of the HIV/AIDS crisis and devise strategies to halt its spread. Mainstreaming of HIV/AIDS interventions in the workplaces is among the major strategies used to improve and sustain effective responses against the epidemic in the institutions and sectors. This interesting book is highly recommended for those people, organizations, agencies, sectors working against HIV&AIDS in any workplaces anywhere.

Energy and Global Climate Change: Bridging the Sustainable Development Divide focuses attention on two urgent global development challenges faced by the UN and its member states: access to sustainable energy for all, and global climate change. This book presents compelling evidence about an often neglected aspect of the energy-climate change-development nexus faced by millions of poor: problems caused by the use of inefficient and polluting energy sources, and the lack of access to sustainable energy services. Based on a detailed examination of major UN global climate change and sustainable development negotiated outcomes over the course of several decades, this book argues in a powerful and insightful manner that intergovernmental negotiated outcomes aimed at solving the climate change and energy access challenges have been restricted by being placed in different negotiating silos. This “siloization” or compartmentalization has resulted in separate tracks of negotiated outcomes on two inextricably linked global development challenges; and, has thereby hindered prospects for integrated action. This book points out that the existence of these two silos is especially hard to ignore in light of the urgent UN-led quest for an integrated and universal post-2015 development agenda anticipated to be anchored by new sustainable development goals on energy access and climate change. By addressing the heavy reliance on inefficient and polluting energy services which result in indoor air pollution and short lived climate pollutants that tragically impact millions of poor people, this book highlights the unique importance of integrated action on the energy-poverty-climate change nexus in the UN’s post-2015 development era.

This book is an economic and philosophical discourse on sustainable economic development inspired by Ujamaa and the philosophy of self-reliance advocated by Julius Nyerere as a policy towards social and economic development. The book explores human empowerment as a means to sustainable economic development. It argues that human empowerment in developing countries can build on Nyerere's approach to development founded on community participation. However, self-reliance is not possible without the ability to build sustainable development and-, self-reliance philosophy and efforts towards development in their current forms have lacked the ability to intensify people's capability. Human empowerment is needed to produce people with vision, who can reflect on situations, initiate relevant and responsible action, and thereby transform situations for the common good. The empowerment I recommend is endowed on education, entrepreneurship and civil societies. Building on Amartya Sen's philosophy of the capability approach to development, empowerment will provide relevant solution for developing countries to break away from economic dependency and the vicious cycle of poverty.

Sustainable development as a concept was first introduced by United Nations in 1974. It rose to broader public knowledge in 1987 with the publication of "Our Common Future", or so called Bruntland report by UN commission on sustainable development. Sustainability has since been a stable basis in many of the development plans made around the world. Sustainable ICT is a relatively new field, where work started around the turn of the millennium. This book, Sustainable ICT - A Contemporary Overview, aims to chart the history of sustainable development and describe the current situation of sustainability in the ICT field. Themes included in the book are academic work, administration, applications, frameworks, hardware, institutional and national strategies, practical measures, recycling and worldwide initiatives. For broader context, information and knowledge society is discussed as well. The book will work as a good introductory source on the field and its related issues on the first decade of 2000's. It explains the current state of sustainability research and suggests topics for future research.

Master's Thesis from the year 2018 in the subject Business economics - General, grade: 1,6, Blekinge Institute of Technology (Strategic Sustainability), language: English, abstract: The current global economic paradigm, centred on growth, is a significant barrier in the transition towards a sustainable society. Business-as-Usual companies operating within this paradigm are perceived to prosper at the expense of society and environment which is not viable on a finite planet. The need to rethink the purpose of business is inevitable as maximising shareholder value, has been deemed insufficient to create a sustainable society.This study aimed to explore: how business models can be used to create value that supports Strategic Sustainable Development. Previous research proposed that the concept of Business Models for Sustainability helps business place sustainability at the core of all consideration. A qualitative research was chosen for which we employed the Framework for Strategic Sustainable Development and combined a literature review with an investigation of three expert groups to answer our research question.Our findings showed that, compared to other value forms, system value is the most appropriate concept for businesses striving towards sustainable development. Based on our findings, six themes emerged that businesses need to address to accelerate the speed of change towards sustainability.

Inhaltlich unveränderte Neuauflage. Gender Mainstreaming ist seit 1999 sowohl auf UN- und EU-Ebene als auch auf der Ebene nationalstaatlicher Akteure als verbindliche Leitlinie zur Um­set­zung von Gleichstellung festgeschrieben. Gender Mainstreaming meint, die In­tegration einer Geschlechterperspektive in alle politischen Prozesse auf allen Ebe­nen und von allen beteiligten Organisationsakteuren. Auch im Bereich der Ent­wicklungszusammenarbeit soll Gender Mainstreaming eine wichtige Rolle spie­len. Die Autorin beleuchtet das Konzept Gender Mainstreaming aus einer kri­tischen Perspektive und analysiert Entstehung und Grundprämissen. Sie ver­knüpft Erkenntnisse aus der feministischen Theoriebildung, der kritischen Ent­wicklungsländerforschung und den Postcolonial-Studies. Als Beispiel dient ihr das Gleichberechtigungskonzept des BMZ. Diesem theoretischen Teil folgt ei­ne Betrachtung eines konkreten Projekts der GTZ. Diese beleuchtet die Schwie­rigkeiten der praktischen Umsetzung von Gender Mainstreaming. Das Buch richtet sich ebenso an an feministischen Fragestellungen interessierte Ak­teure der Entwicklungszusammenarbeit als auch an So­zial­wis­sen­schaft­ler­In­nen, die sich kritisch mit Entwicklungs- und Geschlechterpolitik aus­ein­an­der­setzen.

This is a monograph on modeling methodology - models focused on policies for sustainable development. Sustainable policies are important because the patterns of the historical development of the world's industrial, commercial, and economic systems of contemporary society are 'not projectable' - simply not viable over the future. We examine a new concept of societal models, called 'model ontology'. We will see how this can be used to construct 'information architectures' for information systems centered upon specific policy issues. An information-system approach based upon societal modeling is the way models can be useful and important to policy making

Insbesondere wird die Frage nach Möglichkeiten und Grenzen in der Umsetzung von Gender Mainstreaming im Kindergarten und in Kindertagesstätten diskutiert.Gender Mainstreaming als politisches Instrument zur Gleichstellung der Geschlechter kann als Ergebnis der politischen und theoretischen Auseinandersetzung um das Geschlechterverhältnis gesehen werden. Mit dem Konzept des Gender Mainstreaming wurde die Frauenförderung zu einer umfassenden Geschlechterpolitik transformiert.Politisches Handeln und Konzepte auf allen Ebenen sollen unter dem Aspekt Gleichstellung analysiert und gegebenenfalls revidiert werden. Eine Veränderung des Geschlechterverhältnisses soll über den Umbau institutioneller Strukturen erfolgen. Ziel ist es für beide Geschlechter gleiche Chancen und bessere Lebensbedingungen zu schaffen (vgl. Cordes 2004, S. 717).

Global population growth and tremendous economic development has brought us to the crossroads of long-term sustainability and risk of irreversible changes in the ecosystem. Energy efficient and ecofriendly technologies and systems are critically needed for further growth and sustainable development. While ceramic matrix composites were originally developed to overcome problems associated with the brittle nature of monolithic ceramics, today the composites can be tailored for customized purposes and offer energy efficient and ecofriendly applications, including aerospace, ground transportation, and power generation systems. The 9th International Conference on High Temperature Ceramic Matrix Composites (HTCMC 9) was held in Toronto, Canada, June 26-30, 2016 to discuss challenges and opportunities in manufacturing, commercialization, and applications for these important material systems. The Global Forum on Advanced Materials and Technologies for Sustainable Development (GFMAT 2016) was held in conjunction with HTCMC 9 to address key issues, challenges, and opportunities in a variety of advanced materials and technologies that are critically needed for sustainable societal development.

Research paper from the year 2008 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Development Politics, grade: none, University of Jaume I, language: English, abstract: In contemporary time, democracy has turned out to be the most supported political tool for development and social change, which has attained near global acclaim and admiration by many world leaders. Although it is contestable, the reasons for this vary. First, democracy has gained acceptability as a form of government based on equity and justice. Secondly, it purports to uphold the rule of law, and as well, guarantee the preservation of human rights.As it is assumed that effective strategies adopted and properly implemented by a nation have the tendency to accelerate progress in the development of the said nation, this work examined some strategies for sustainable development in Nigeria. It highlighted existing strategies for development in the country, examined progress and challenges in implementing the strategies, and further identified measures which when adopted and implemented, will likely change the social, economic, and political condition of the country for economic growth and sustainable development.

The concept of sustainability holds that the social, economic, and environmental factors within human communities must be viewed interactively and systematically. Sustainable development cannot be understood apart from a community, its ethos, and ways of life. Although broadly conceived, the pursuit of sustainable development is a local practice because every community has different needs and quality of life concerns. Within this framework, contributors representing the disciplines of anthropology, sociology, geography, economics, law, public policy, architecture, and urban studies explore sustainability in communities in the Pacific, Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe, and North America.

Von der Öffentlichkeit weitgehend unbemerkt wurde Gender Mainstreaming als EU-Richtlinie von allen Mitgliedsstaaten für verbindlich erklärt und so auch vom Bundeskabinett in seinem Beschluss vom 23.06.1999 als strukturelles Leitprinzip der Politik anerkannt. Da es keine geschlechtsneutrale Wirklichkeit gibt, ist das Ziel von Gender Mainstreaming, bei allen gesellschaftlichen Vorhaben die unterschiedlichen Lebenssituationen und Interessen von Frauen und Männern (Mädchen und Jungen) von vornherein und regelmäßig zu berücksichtigen. Dadurch sollen die Strukturen der Gesellschaft so verändert werden, dass ein gerechtes Miteinander der Geschlechter in unserer Gesellschaft möglich wird. Um jedoch unserer Gesellschaft von Grund auf eine neue Struktur zu geben, muss bei den kleinsten Gliedern begonnen werden. Schon den Mädchen und Jungen sollten diese Strukturen so früh wie möglich vermittelt werden. Deshalb gehört Gender Mainstreaming schon und gerade in den Bereich der Frühpädagogik. Tanja Dräger bietet in ihrem Buch einen einführenden Überblick über die politische Strategie des Gender Mainstreaming und bezieht diese ganz konkret auf ein Handlungsfeld der Sozialen Arbeit, nämlich die Arbeit im Kindergarten.Was bedeutet Gender Mainstreaming? Was kann unter einer geschlechtergerechten Pädagogik verstanden werden? Wie kann Gender Mainstreaming im Kindergarten direkt umgesetzt werden? Welche Erfahrungen haben Erzieherinnen und Erzieher schon gesammelt? Was können die einzelnen Akteurin...

In Bangladesh, climate vulnerability is increasing along with poverty. But during international climate change debates, concern over 'justice' is glowing to finance adaptation. In this line, Bangladesh formulated 'National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA)' under UNFCCC guidance to abate climate change impact. The research views 'mainstreaming' as a process of promoting 'adaptation' to "transform vulnerability into (climate) security". In Bangladesh, NAPA mainstreaming is government-led and subject to use existing institutions and regulatory frameworks. Therefore, in what extend NAPA mainstreaming will be successful to promote 'socially-just adaptation to climate change' is difficult to predict. Here, the context is critically analyzed to structure institutional problems and actor dynamics to recommend policy amendments for intended mainstreaming. However, successful mainstreaming lies on balancing conflicts among diverse actors in order to promote security for the vulnerable people. Therefore, the research is arguing that the treatment of social justice must be included both in NAPA formulation and implementation phases for intended (socially-just) mainstreaming.

Responding to environmental problems is becoming an increasing priority of the world's population. As the developed world has pushed the boundaries of economic development, it is also principally responsible for many global environmental issues. Sustainable development has emerged as a potential solution to these problems, but is often so vague in definition, it provides little help. How then are we to affect change on environmental issues? This book seeks to answer such a question through a comparative case study, examining the differences between Canadian and German approaches to climate change and material waste disposal policy. The project works through the sustainable development literature and utilizes The Natural Step framework to make policy recommendations. It is the goal of this book to provide policymakers, interest groups and citizens alike with tools to improve the state of the environment everywhere.

Packaging design is a powerful vehicle for making our lives friendlier, our planet greener and our businesses richer. It is an essential link between the producer and the customer, where it contributes to the positioning and presentation of a product; and on many occasions, the use of the product after purchase. What is missing is a compass that can guide practitioners in the right direction. This is particularly so in the field of packaging where the routes you take may contradict rather than contribute to sustainable development. Managing Packaging Design for Sustainable Development: A Compass for Strategic Directions emphasizes the need to rethink packaging system design, by presenting a strategic packaging design tool; a compass. The compass encourages you to go off-road, to develop and innovate, and to remake the packaging design solution that previously was best practice. Theory and practical applications are balanced by outlining the most crucial tenets of packaging design for sustainability and by illustrating wide range of real-life cases that will inspire and challenge the mindsets of those who apply the compass in packaging design related projects. This is a must-have book for designers, engineers, logisticians, marketers, supply chain professionals and other managers who seek guidance on sustainable solutions through packaging design.

This dissertation's hypothesis argues that state-building and development are processes that, to function successfully, must be positioned in a complementary interrelationship. This argument has arisen in response to contemporary approaches to state-building and development that are too narrow, so that state-building strategies are often reduced to the establishment of political institutions to the exclusion of other equally necessary structures that include economic, social, and even cultural concerns; in the same sense, development strategies frequently focus on the support and establishment of selected economic structures at the exclusion of political, cultural, and social dimensions. Furthermore, a necessary prerequisite for long-term stability is a guarantee of individual and collective security, and the state requires, in its establishment and development, this aspect in all of its institutions. By taking as a case study the intervention of UNMIK and the EU in Kosovo, the author attempts to show how state-building and development processes are interrelated, and how they might best be applied in the field in order to achieve sustainable outcomes.State-building is defined as the building of state structures, which are role- and rule-oriented institutions within political, economic, social and cultural domains. Development is used in this work to identify the process responsible for making these structures sustainable over time. In the case of Kosovo, in addition to th...

Decades of irresponsible oil exploitation in the Niger Delta have caused a water and air pollution which does not have many comparisons anywhere else. In an already fragile country as Nigeria, characterised by weak democratic institutions and poor economic governance, this situation has led to increasing discontent and violence towards both the government and the oil multinationals. These two actors co-operate for the maximisation of oil profits and revenues while, at the same time, excluding local host communities from the participation in the oil development projects, preventing them from achieving a sustainable development, violating their human rights, and compromising their livelihoods.This book analyses the legal framework of Nigeria in the oil sector and the peculiarities of the country in order to provide a critical overview of the issues, demonstrating that the amendment of the domestic Acts dealing with the topic, as well as the remediation to the damages caused by oil multinationals, are no longer deferrable. The final aim is to suggest a pattern to sustainable oil development which, by means of applying the concepts of Corporate Social Responsibility, would help to quell the conflict, to improve the local people's standards of life, and to make Nigeria emerge as a socio-environmentally responsible African resource-rich country.

This book presents a new comprehensive study on the impacts of population decline on infrastructure in Japan, taking into account all types of infrastructure and using a quantitative approach. Data collection methods include interviews and two large scale questionnaire surveys, the first conducted with municipalities and the second, a stated preference survey, conducted with members of the public. The goal of sustainable development is relevant even in a depopulated society, and hence a sustainable development framework is applied to the analysis where social, economic, environmental and engineering impacts are investigated. The main findings indicate that some infrastructure impacts observed and reported in depopulated areas do not seem to be related to any population decline; moreover, the preferences of citizens for infrastructure development is very similar between depopulated areas and non-depopulated areas. This book also provides many cases to cope with the impacts of population decline on infrastructure in Japan. Some of policy implications in each four-aspect of sustainable infrastructure development and management could be extracted from those cases.

The challenges facing humanity in the 21st century include climate change, population growth, overconsumption of resources, overproduction of waste and increasing energy demands. For construction practitioners, responding to these challenges means creating a built environment that provides accommodation and infrastructure with better whole-life performance using lower volumes of primary materials, less non-renewable energy, wasting less and causing fewer disturbances to the natural environment. Concrete is ubiquitous in the built environment. It is therefore essential that it is used in the most sustainable way so practitioners must become aware of the range of sustainable concrete solutions available for construction. While sustainable development has been embedded into engineering curricula, it can be difficult for students and academics to be fully aware of the innovations in sustainable construction that are developed by the industry. Sustainable Concrete Solutions serves as an introduction to and an overview of the latest developments in sustainable concrete construction. It provides useful guidance, with further references, to students, researchers, academics and practitioners of all construction disciplines who are faced with the challenge of designing, specifying and constructing with concrete.

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Business Ethics, Corporate Ethics, grade: 8,0, Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen (Nijmegen School of Management), course: International Management, language: English, abstract: For the last five decades, one important goal has driven the world economy: The pursuit of growth. As the economy expands, the resource implications associated with it cannot be ignored any longer. In less than a decade, we may face significant scarcity in key resources, such as oil. Out of scholarly discussion it emerged that a transition towards a new form of capitalist development is needed, a transition towards an economy which is in line with the objectives of a sustainable society. Sustainable entrepreneurship, a form of entrepreneurship that combines ecologic, social and economic sustainability, has been generally declared as suited to advance this so-called 'sustainability transition'. However, scholars have neglected to investigate the 'how' and 'why' of such an assumption. This Master Thesis aims at filling this research gap by answering the following research question:In what way can sustainable entrepreneurship influence a transition towards a more sustainable economy?In doing so, the thesis is structured into three different research papers, each using a different research method to reach the following goals:1.

The simultaneous rise of the relevance of outsourcing of logistics activities emphasizes the need to put strong attention to sustainable aspects in the relationship between shippers and their logistics service providers (LSP). This thesis strives to answer the question how sustainability can be integrated into the LSP procurement process.Thereto, a broad literature review is compiled by applying all relevant references into a comprehensive framework. One of the main revealed challenges of sustainable LSP procurement is the lack of overview on sustainable selection criteria.In order to overcome this gap, a multi-dimensional model will be presented to improve comparability and organization of criteria by assigning them to a sustainable dimension, field of activity, field of action and time/ planning horizon. The following research on existing sustainable selection criteria results in a long list with 123 criteria. The statistical analyses of this list provide insights into current research directions on sustainability and both approve assumptions and unveil mismatches from the existing body of literature.The development of an expert guidance based on the catalogue of sustainable sel...
