Governance for Sustainable Development

     "Governance is the framework of social and economic systems and legal and political structures through which humanity manages itself" 

World Humanity Action Trust  

 

Governance and sustainable development are intimately tied together. The future role and architecture of institutions, from local to international levels, will be crucial determinants of whether future policy and programmes for sustainable development will succeed. The following papers and resources on this web page outline a range of viewpoints on: Current problems with institutional architecture; Options for alternative frameworks; Recommendations for future debate.
