ACHIEVING SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Popularizing Research describes methods of communicating research ideas by utilizing more that the traditional publications approach. The book is divided into nine parts: film, visual media and graphics, exhibits and installations, audio, periodicals, books and reports, dialogue, performance, and publicity.  Each chapter is written through a unique voice and set of experiences; however, common elements are seen throughout the volume as to why an approach to communicating research was designed or selected.

Innovation, Science, Environment includes reflections from a number of Canada's leading sustainable development thinkers, two decades after the 1987 publication of the seminal United Nations report Our Common Future. Published by the World Commission on Environment and Development - and often referred to as the Brundtland Commission Report after its Chair Gro Harlem Brundtland former Prime Minister of Norway - the report popularized the concept of sustainable development which continues to influence economic, environmental, and social policy decisions and structures in individual countries and international organizations.

INTEGRATED RESOURCE MANAGEMENT IN CANADA

Author(s): 
Ann Dale, Lenore Newman
Author(s): 
Book Editors: Kevin Hanna, Scott Slocome
Year:

Publisher: 
Oxford University Press
ACHIEVING SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

The aim of this volume is to provide a coherent set of chapters that address major issues in resource and environmental management. The book has a North American focus with significant, but not exclusive Canadian Content. 'Integration' is the organizing theme of the volume. Integration as a concept (meaning variously integration across disciplines, across agencies, and across sectors) has been a key theme in the policy and management rhetoric of virtually every agency in North America and abroad for more than 30 years. As one of the dominant themes of the discipline, integration has been addressed both as a component and as the main focus of a variety of texts for this course. However, there is nothing on the market at the moment that is both up-to-date and North American in approach.
