Summary "It is widely recognized that sustainable development can only be achieved if environmental, economic and social issues are combined in development plans, policies and programmes. This book examines this integrated approach to the development process, and analyses the theory and practice of integrating assessment techniques and decision making." "This book will be warmly welcomed by development policymakers and consultants in government and non-government organizations as well as academics and postgraduates working in the fields of economics, development and environmental studies."--BOOK JACKET
