Show Summary Details

Preview

Analyses efforts of the Australian government to come to terms with sustainable development. It examines Australia's National Strategy for ecologically sustainable development and considers its impact on policy and debates. It documents political developments during the second half of the 1990s that weakened the country's response to sustainable development, and increased the caution with which it viewed commitments to be undertaken under the climate change regime.
