Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: EA additional title info: Sustainable Development Series
The purpose of this report is to give an insight into the structures which either apply, debate or which influence progress on sustainability in order to stimulate discussion in these and related areas. The report gives both general and specific examples. Specifically an insight is given into the energy scene in the USA. It is not the purpose of this report to give a detailed analysis but several areas of interest are examined: least cost planning, the North West Power Planning Council and the Natura! Resource Defense Council's (NRDC) work on energy. Although these topics may not be wholly representative of the' overall energy scene they do provide a useful snapshot of various mechanisms. The New York Waste Management Plan and its production are also discussed. This gives an insight into US waste management planning. The mechanisms by which sustainability was being addressed and progressed are discussed.
