Implementing Sustainable Development: From Global Policy to Local Actionby Claudia Maria Vargas, Phillip J. Cooper
There is a great deal of rhetoric and no shortage of ideas about sustainable development. However, note Cooper and Vargas (both of the U. of Vermont), there has also been an "implementation gap." Saying that "implementation is the art of the feasible," they present a feasibility framework for professionals called on to implement policy that allows them to assess the technical, legal, fiscal, administrative, political, ethical, and cultural feasibility of policy. The issues raised by each of these feasibility factors are explored in separate chapters. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
