Sustainable Development National Aspirations Local Implementation from the Author: Alan Terry. Using case studies from Africa, South America, Asia and the Caribbean, this book examines the progress made in uniting national aspirations of sustainable development strategies with their local implementation. Comparing the situation on the ground with formal national environmental action plans, the book compares progress, or the lack of progress, between different sectors, cultures, regions and resources throughout the developing world. It examines whether local knowledge and actions are undermining national aspirations or whether they are being ignored at the national level with detrimental consequences to sustainable development. The measurement of sustainable development, the role of formal and informal education in sustainable development and the significance of diverse voices in the practice of sustainable development are considered. The book draws lessons from those cases which appear to be experiencing positive moves towards sustainability and examines whether common frameworks exist which suggest that good practice may be transferable from one milieu to another.

Proceeding Of The 1st International Conference On Tropical Agriculture from the Author: Alim Isnansetyo. The proceeding of tropical agriculture is a proceeding of papers presented at the International Conference on Tropical Agriculture. Sustainability of agriculture production system is an important issue in the world, which includes all aspects of sustainable criteria, such as technical, socio-economic, and ecological aspects. This book covers sustainable tropical agriculture, sustainable tropical fisheries, sustainable tropical animal production, sustainable tropical forestry, tropical animal health, and Innovative and Emerging Food Technology and Management. The most common, challenging issues in plant, animal and fisheries production in the tropics are climate change, inefficiency production system, low technological innovation, decreasing environment quality, and the outbreak risk of pest and diseases. These issues are closely linked to the socio-economic condition of farmers as small-scale farms are dominant in this area. In addition, post-harvest technology is crucial to maintaining the high quality of products after on farm production. This volume provides the recent research and development on tropical agriculture production systems for plant, terrestrial animal and aquatic animal to establish sustainable agriculture production in the tropics.

D Veloppement Viable Et Valorisation Environnementale from the Author: . Toute d√©marche qui entend se situer dans le domaine de la conservation et de la valorisation environnementales, dont le d√©veloppement durable n'est a minima qu'une inflexion, voit sa l√©gitimit√© et, partant, sa validit√© conditionn√©es par sa transversalit√© " essentielle " et sa pluridisciplinarit√© fonctionnelle. Le propos pourrait sembler ne relever que d'un " d√©sordre " mal ma√ģtris√©, porteur d'une complexit√© inopportune ou d√©structurante, voire " a-culturante ", eu √©gard aux enjeux sous-jacents, qu'on les envisage d'un point de vue √©thique, en l'occurrence humaniste (ou, plus prosa√Įquement, anthropocentriste), ou plus √©cologique (voire, si l'on en d√©passe l'acception purement scientifique, id√©ologique), en l'esp√®ce biocentriste. Il tient au contraire, dans un tel domaine, d'exigences aussi n√©cessaires qu'enrichissantes, quitte √† en op√©rer le moment venu l'indispensable synth√®se, √† partir d'√©valuations et de bilans ad hoc : approches diff√©renci√©es, regards crois√©s, r√©flexions transversales, causalit√©s " circulatoires ", constats compl√©mentaires, esquisses prospectives, perspectives multiformes. Les auteurs qui ont collabor√© au pr√©sent ouvrage ont √©t√© conduits, dans ce cadre et dans ce propos, √† d√©fricher des voies qui, pour para√ģtre parfois audacieuses n'en sont pas moins r√©v√©latrices de la n√©cessit√© de ne pas se cantonner √† la dimension trop souvent incantatoire ou mythifi√©e, √† travers de multiples effets d'annonce sans lendemains, de la r√©f√©rence √† un d√©veloppement dont la logomachie le limiterait √† la seule " durabilit√© ", l√† o√Ļ la r√©alit√© et l'urgence exigeraient d'en accr√©diter politiquement et d'en imposer effectivement les dimensions de viabilit√© et de soutenabilit√©, et, implicitement mais intrins√®quement, d'√©quit√©. Dans cette mesure, comme dans ses limites, cet ouvrage, aussi paradoxal dans sa forme que dans son contenu serait-il - et se voudrait-il -, souhaite avant tout susciter la r√©flexion et apporter une contribution aussi engag√©e qu'originale √† la construction d'un futur de l'homme et de la plan√®te dont les enjeux prioritaires et d√©terminants doivent √™tre lucidement appr√©ci√©s √† l'aune des menaces auxquelles il est aujourd'hui dramatiquement expos√©. Les r√©flexions et √©tudes pr√©sent√©es ici se veulent en ce sens autant de pi√®ces √† verser au d√©bat que suscite une telle dialectique, certes conceptuelle mais √©galement, et surtout, op√©rationnelle. Elles entendent par l√† apporter une contribution utile et constructive aux questionnements que se propose de poser et de diffuser la pr√©sente s√©rie d'ouvrages.

Coastal Mass Tourism from the Author: Prof. Bill Bramwell. The Mediterranean coastal regions of Southern Europe have long been world leaders in mass tourism. This book examines some key questions for tourism development in these areas, with implications for similar regions across the world. The standardised forms of mass tourism are diversifying ‚Äď with more specialised forms, notably those based on nature, culture and heritage, and those catering for special interests. There is a growing spectrum of modes of tourism, with an emphasis on variety, flexibility and permeability. Both mass tourism and the more diversified forms substantially impact on sustainable development. Policies promoting sustainable development are often of two main types: developing smaller-scale, alternative tourism products that are intended to be less damaging to the environment and society, and secondly, attempts to make mass tourism coastal resorts more sustainable. But there has been little critical assessment of these policies, either evaluating their basic assumptions or their successes and failures in practice. This edited book critically examines these issues for varied coastal regions in Southern Europe, including case studies from Spain, Croatia, Turkey, and north and south Cyprus.
