About this book

Evaluating sustainable development is becoming increasingly important in policy making, evaluation practice and the scientific world in general. However, at present, there is neither a generally accepted set of measures and evaluation methods, nor specific standards to be met.

This book addresses these issues and presents an important and concise analysis of state-of-the-art sustainable development evaluation policies, programmes and projects currently at work in Europe. The aim of this book is not to offer an all-encompassing overview of these efforts, but to raise the most significant issues involved in the planning and implementation of an evaluation project at international, national, regional and local levels.


Preface; Part I: Sustainable Development - Making the Concept Operational for Evaluation; Part II: Methods of Evaluating SD; * Methods and Tools - Multi-regional and National Context; * Methods and Tools - Regional and Local Context; * Methods and Tools - Focus on Individual Institutions; Part III: National Evaluation Culture; * State-of-the-Art in European Countries; * State-of-the-Art in Another Industrialised Country Index.
