Growing Pains: Environmental Management in Developing Countries
Environmental management is a global phenomenon, embracing all businesses globally, whether or not there already exists an organised response to managing environmental impacts. Today, there are gross inequalities between the world's richest and poorest nations in terms of income distribution, consumption patterns, access to resources and environmental impact. Yet both the developed North and the developing South are committed, at least in words, to achieving sustainable development. Growing Pains examines environmental management in the South from a number of perspectives. It is designed to stimulate the discussion about the role that corporations and national and international organisations play in sustainable development. With contributions from UNIDO; the Thailand Environment Institute, Arthur D. Little, Inc., Shell Peru; IUCN, the Russian Academy of Sciences and IIED, this book is essential reading for businesses working in developing countries, environmental and developmental NGOs and researchers engaged in the debate and sharing of best practice.
