Sustainable development in post-devolution UK and Ireland

Graham Haughton, Dave Counsell, Geoff Vigar

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Strategies for sustainable development have been produced aplenty in recent years, with numbers increasing in the context of devolution. This paper examines the way in which they have developed. It examines the role of strategies for sustainable development as a metagovernance and policy integration device. The limited evidence of diversity in approaches to sustainable development post-devolution is a key finding.
