Evidence for Hope
Since the first international environment conference in Stockholm in 1972, there has been unprecedented public concern for the future of the planet and a growing awareness that future development has to be sustainable. At the heart of this growing agenda has been the work of the world’s leading international think-tank in the area of environment and development: the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED). In this volume, to mark IIED’s 30th Anniversary, leading figures involved draw on their accumulated experience to reflect on the lessons learned and to chart the path for future policy and practice - across the spectrum of policy areas from agriculture and resource management to energy, industry and institutional change. It offers an authoritative perspective on three decades of development and green debates, as well as a lively history of a unique institution.
