Abstract:

' Measuring the sustainability of development is crucial to achieving it and is one of the most actively studied issues in the area. To date most studies of measurements or indicators have been largely theoretical. However this book a follow-on to Bell and Morse's highly influential Sustainability Indicators (1999) presents valuable practical advice on how to develop measurements that will work in real-life development contexts. It describes and analyses how to derive validate and apply indicators in the course of an actual development project - in this case the Mediterranean Action Plan in.
