Sustainable Development National Aspirations Local Implementation from the Author: Wendy Woodland. 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.

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.

Food Agri Culture And Tourism from the Author: Katia Laura Sidali. This book will be a valuable source of information for those concerned with rural and farm tourism, sustainable tourism and the marketing of "Calibri">local gastronomy. It presents cases with an international and interdisciplinary approach in order to provide ideas for strategic perspectives in tourism studies. Furthermore, for the first time the complex fields of rural and food tourism are examined from an international (Italy and Germany) viewpoint. This book explores ways in which gastronomical heritage (i.e., regional food, organic food) can be incorporated in rural tourism (above all farm tourism) and development policies as well as in new avenues of research e.g., sensory marketing, online marketing) in order to enhance sustainable practices both in the tourism and in the agri-food sector. Overall, the book presents an overview of benchmark practices for professionals (associations of rural tourism, farmers, etc.), while offering scholars a well-founded source to refer to in order to gain up-to-date insights into the state of the art of studies on rural and food tourism.
