Kurzinfo:
There is a wide range of projects, institutions and initiatives in the field of sustainable development which have been taking place and which have provided a concrete contribution to the cause of sustainability as a whole. Unfortunately, most are little known. This perceived need for information on international perspectives on sustainability is addressed in this book. lt gathers a set of papers which provide a synthetic overview of the effectiveness of implementation activities and initiatives at various levels, bringing together various clusters of organisations and a wide range of approaches. Whilst a special emphasis is given to Germany, from where reports on the work of the German Council for Sustainable Development, the German International Co-operation Agency and the German Federal Environment Foundation are documented, examples of other initiatives taking place elsewhere in Europe and North America are provided.Contributors to this book have made a great deal of efforts in providing synthetic overviews of the effective-ness of implementation activities at different levels, drawing lessons with a wide geographical scope, broad relevance and wider implications and applications. Readers will notice that some major new developments and outstanding problems needing further attention are outlined. Last but not least, the book provides concrete examples of governmental, inter-governmental, and non-governmental successful or promising efforts, showing that sustainability as both a process and as a goal may be pursued in different ways.

Summary:
The report indicates that many of the agreements and conventions prepared during the "Earth Summit" held in Brazil in June 1992 have been undertaken and implemented by international organisations. Many organisations have done extensive work in providing guidance for sustainable development with respect to many environmental areas. It also states that national governments and communities are increasingly experimenting with sustainable development models and that despite the progress that has been made since the "Earth Summit" some needs still remain, for example:

* the need for assessments of progress achieved in all aspects of the post-UNCED agenda;
* the need to identify challenges that need to be addressed with renewed commitment;
* the need to identify new challenges that are arising and need to be addressed;
* the need to consider options for concerted action on outstanding cross-sectoral issues
