Economics of Sustainable Development book cover

Economics of Sustainable Development

Risk, Resources, and Governance

These 27 articles lay down the foundations of sustainable development in a way that facilitates effective policy design. The editors mix broad thematic papers with focused micro papers, balancing theories with policy designs. The result begins with two sections on sustainable development principles and practice and on specific settings where sustainable development is practiced. Two more sections illuminate institutions, governance, and political economy. Additional sections cover sustainable development and agriculture and risk and economic security, including disaster management. This rich source of information should appeal to any institution involved in development work and to development practitioners grappling with an array of difficult on-the-ground developmental challenges.

Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals worldwide working on risk, resource, and policy issues concerned with substainable development.
