Developing ideas: Issue 5


A bi-monthly Digest by IISD

International Institute for Sustainable Development

D.I. September/October 1996 Issue 5

Developing Ideas is a bi-monthly publication of the International Institute for Sustainable Development. Our aim is to provide a snapshot of the most influential ideas shaping the international sustainable development dialogue every couple of months. The information contained in Developing Ideas is gathered from formal and informal surveys of opinion-leaders and literature in the field. IlSD's Information Centre serves as a clearinghouse for major sources materials. This information is supplemented by contributions and insights from IlSD's global network of partners. IISD is a UNEP Collaborating Centre for International Environmental Assessment, Reporting and Forecasting.
