Abstract

The problems related to the process of industrialisation such as biodiversity depletion, climate change and a worsening of health and living conditions, especially but not only in developing countries, intensify. Therefore, there is an increasing need to search for integrated solutions to make development more sustainable. The United Nations has acknowledged the problem and approved the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. On 1st January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the Agenda officially came into force. These goals cover the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic growth, social inclusion and environmental protection.   The Encyclopedia of the UN Sustainable Development Goals comprehensively addresses the SDGs in an integrated way. The Encyclopedia encompasses 17 volumes, each one devoted to one of the 17 SDGs. This volume addresses SDG 16, namely "Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels" and contains the description of a range of terms, which allow a better understanding and foster knowledge. Concretely, the defined targets are: Significantly reduce all forms of violence and related death rates everywhere End abuse, exploitation, trafficking and all forms of violence against and torture of children Promote the rule of law at the national and international levels and ensure equal access to justice for all Significantly reduce illicit financial and arms flows, strengthen the recovery and return of stolen assets and combat all forms of organized crime Substantially reduce corruption and bribery in all their forms Develop effective, accountable and transparent institutions at all levels Ensure responsive, inclusive, participatory and representative decisionmaking at all levels  Broaden and strengthen the participation of developing countries in the institutions of global governance Provide legal identity for all, including birth registration  Ensure public access to information and protect fundamental freedoms, in accordance with national legislation and international agreements  Strengthen relevant national institutions, including through international cooperation, for building capacity at all levels, in particular in developing countries, to prevent violence and combat terrorism and crime Promote and enforce non-discriminatory laws and policies for sustainable development.

Abstract

Alors que le développement durable est partout invoqué mais jamais défini, il était urgent d'en proposer une grille de lecture : analyse critique restituant sa popularité et dégageant ses ambiguïtés. L'auteur souligne ses contradictions et définit les notions équivoques de ressources et d'usage de ces ressources. Il conteste une vision lisse de l'espace où n'existerait pas de discontinuité lorsque l'on change d'échelle, du mondial au local. Il souligne les conflits entre équité spatiale et équité intergénérationnelle. Il pointe enfin l'opposition entre la durabilité, qui suppose une continuité dans l'utilisation des ressources, et la croissance qui est une rupture brutale porteuse de développement. Destiné aux spécialistes, étudiants, décideurs des collectivités territoriales et professionnels de l'aménagement et de la gestion des risques, l'ouvrage montre qu'il existe une tension permanente entre les stratégies d'acteurs et l'appropriation des politiques environnementales par les sociétés pour définir le "bon" milieu et le "bon" usage de ses ressources.

Abstract

Despite its impressive export-growth performance and sizeable inflows of FDI during the 1990s, Mexico has been unable to alleviate the social and regional disparities that exist within the country. The differences in enabling assets are pertinent to the varied paces of development across Mexico's regions and highlight the existing divide between several parts of the Centre-North and the South-Southeast, where the majority of the population continues to live in poverty.

Abstract

Sustainability assessment is now emerging as a more transparent, comprehensive, integrated and far-sighted approach to decision making. Its basic demand is that all significant undertakings must make a positive contribution to sustainability. To apply this test, decision makers need criteria based on the core requirements of sustainability and the particularities of the context. As well, they need appropriately designed public processes; guidance on the weighing of alternatives, trade-offs and compromises; a supportive policy framework; suitable tools and inspiring examples.
