Decision-makers increasingly seek to design environmental and development policies that will support sustainable development. Thus, practical tools to help formulate sustainable development policies and clear methods to assess their acceptability and effectiveness are urgently needed. This book aims to contribute to meeting these needs by presenting both analytical and empirical aspects of decision-making processes. The authors explore the methods of integrating environmental and social sciences to support participatory policy design, implementation and assessment of sustainable development policies. These methods are applied and discussed with reference to several case studies from various regions of the world. Although each chapter has a distinct focus, they all contribute to a clearer understanding of how sustainable development is perceived and assessed by society. The book is interdisciplinary, emphasizing how the integration of a wide set of disciplines and stakeholder perspectives into the policy-making process can help better understand sustainable development policies.
