It is widely recognised that sustainable development can only be achieved if environmental, economic and social issues are combined in development plans, policies and programmes. This work examines this integrated approach to the development process, and analyzes the theory and practice of integrating assessment techniques and decision-making. The editors begin by presenting an introduction to integrated appraisal in development strategies as well as outlining issues which are important to the future understanding and practical application of integrated appraisal. A group of authors from a range of disciplinary and country backgrounds then present alternative perspectives and methods of an integrated approach to sustainable development, and apply integrated appraisal to a variety of case studies from developing and transitional countries.
