More than twenty years after the Earth Summit was held in Rio de
Janeiro in 1992, both national and international actors in
governmental and nongovernmental fields are still searching for
insights into how sustainable development can be advanced and
environmental concerns incorporated into the development agenda
more effectively. Moreover, climate change has emerged as a
preeminent challenge to both the environment and to development.
"Evaluating Environment in International Development "provides
international perspectives and in-depth knowledge of evaluating
development and the environment and applies evaluation knowledge to
climate change mitigation and adaptation.
The book focuses on the approaches and experiences of leading
international organizations, not-for-profits, and multilateral and
bilateral aid agencies to illustrate how systematic evaluation is
an essential tool for providing evidence for decision-makers. It
provides novel and in-depth perspectives on evaluating environment
and sustainability issues in developing countries. Moving beyond
projects and programmes, it considers aspects such as evaluating
normative work on the environment and evaluating environmental
consequences of economic and social development efforts.
This original collection should be of interest to scholars of
environment studies, development studies, international relations,
sustainable development and evaluation, as well as practitioners in
international organizations and development and environmental
