Sustainable Development, Evaluation and Policy-MakingTheory, Practise and Quality Assurance

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 by considering monitoring and quality improvement schemes
  • assessing the quality of sustainability evaluation studies.

Providing theoretic insights, reflections and case studies, this novel study will prove essential to postgraduate students, practitioners, policy-makers and researchers in the area of sustainable development, policy-making and evaluation.
