About this book

This pathbreaking book contributes to the discourse of evidence-based policy-making. It does so by combining the two issues of policy evaluation and sustainable development linking both to the policy-cycle. It covers contributions: examining the perception of sustainability problems, which analyse the relationship between sustainability and assessment; highlighting the role of evaluation and impact assessment studies during policy formulation; looking at policy implementation by examining sustainability and impact assessment systems in different application areas; addressing policy reformulation presenting monitoring and quality improvement schemes; discussing quality of sustainability evaluations studies. Providing theoretic insights, reflections and case studies, this novel study will prove essential to postgraduate students, practitioners, policymakers and researchers in the area of sustainable development, policymaking and evaluation.
