Evaluating Sustainable Development
Chris Maser Okechukwu Ukaga
Price: $ 22.5

This book presents the principles and the tools for participatory evaluation of sustainable development -- growth that does not compromise the ability of future generations to meet their needs. It is intended for any citizen or group that may be concerned with protecting or recovering a cultural heritage, assessing the impact of a project or of plans that impact an environment or ecosystem.

The authors describe participatory evaluation processes that will empower all interested "stakeholders" -- anyone impacted by a proposed venture -- to determine and control what is to be evaluated and how it is evaluated, to articulate and define their community¿s vision, and to ensure that development plans meet their community¿s needs sustainably.

Acknowledging that the specific concepts, challenges, opportunities, and circumstances surrounding sustainable development differ significantly from one place or group to another, the authors provide an adaptable framework for developing an evaluation plan, as well as the tools for collecting, analyzing, interpreting and presenting data. They explain how to use and communicate findings to ensure a full and appropriate debate about the issues, and finally how to implement the evaluation plan.

An important and practical book for anyone concerned with the impact of planning and development issues and who wants to ensure that all sectors of their community are given a voice in decisions that affect them.
