Stephen Dovers argues that better public policy is the key to creating a more sustainable environment. Environment and Sustainability Policy: Creation, Implementation and Evaluation shows what this might involve in an Australian context. It is an intensely practical book, intellectually original and rigorous, and written in a concise and accessible style.
Dovers melds a deep knowledge of traditional public policy with a close understanding of the sustainability problems and an appreciation of the complex institutional systems which make up modern civil society. He establishes an operational framework for policy analysis and prescription, and provides ways of fulfilling key elements of an effective policy process.
