Oral presentation - Ecologically sustainable development: Success in principle, failure in policy

Peter Burnett has been researching Australia’s national policies on Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD). He argues that although ESD has been a successful concept in public discourse and is capable of serving as an effective goal for environmental policy, it has been implemented poorly, resulting in policy that is neither well-directed nor properly measured.
