This pathbreaking book contributes to the discourse of evidence-based policy-making. It does so by combining the two issues of policy evaluation and sustainable development linking both to the policy-cycle. It covers contributions: * examining the perception of sustainability problems, which analyse the relationship between sustainability and assessment; * highlighting the role of evaluation and impact assessment studies during policy formulation; * looking at policy implementation by examining sustainability and impact assessment systems in different application areas; * addressing policy reformulation by considering monitoring and quality improvement schemes; * assessing the quality of sustainability evaluation studies. Providing theoretic insights, reflections and case studies, this novel study will prove essential to postgraduate students, practitioners, policy-makers and researchers in the area of sustainable development, policy-making and evaluation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Compared to other collections in this field, Sustainable Development, Evaluation and Policy-Making, Theory, Practise and Quality Assurance is straightforward in its style and writing. . . There are no strange hypotheses, no jargon, no digressions, and no endless dis-cussion. The quality of the argumentation deployed here is impressive: the notes, figures, and remarks about research results are detailed and carefully crafted.' -- Yves Laberge, Science & Public Policy
`This thought-provoking and wide-ranging handbook covers a very wide range of multidisciplinary approaches to sustainable development and is a worthy addition to the bookshelf of those working in this area, whether they be evaluators, researchers, students or indeed the policy-makers themselves.' -- Keith Dawson, Experimental Agriculture
