About this book

This volume aims to provide an analysis of the elements of sustainable public policy in a devolved Scotland, following the vote for a Scottish Parliament in the 1997 referendum. It asks questions such as: What will be the key opportunities, policy options and constraints around sustainability?; what practical difference will devolution make?; and what changes within and beyond government will be required to strengthen the roots of sustainable development?
