International Journal of Environment and Sustainable Development (IJESD)

Publisher: Inderscience

International Journal of Environment and Sustainable Development (IJESD)
is a fully-refereed academic journal. It addresses matters related to
environment and sustainable development, paying special attention to
relevant issues in developing countries while reporting on the latest
environmental trends in industrialised nations.

The journal's range of themes encompasses ecological studies, field
research, empirical work and descriptive analyses on topics such as:

* Environmental systems,
* Environmental policies and politics,
* Environmental legislation
* Environmental impact assessment
* Water and energy related issues
* Sustainability
* Sustainable development approaches and methods

Other matters related to or which influence the international debate on
sustainability will be also considered. The journal is published in
conjunction with the UN Environment Programme. Associated Organisations are:

* UNESCO, Paris (France)
* UN Environment Programme, Nairobi (Kenya)

The issue of environment and sustainable development is a complex one. Often
environmental and development matters are intertwined and a holistic
understanding of them is necessary to achieve long-term progress. IJESD
intends to act as an outlet for papers dealing with the issues raised in an
interdisciplinary way.

Specifically, it reports on initiatives involving environmental improvements
in developing and industrialised nations, disseminates case studies,
projects and programmes and reports on the findings of studies and research
on environment and sustainable development.

It will also foster information exchange with respect to pilot projects on
transport, recycling, waste management and analysis of legislation and
appraisals of the impacts of regulations, among other topics. Moreover, it
will serve as a vehicle for the documentation and dissemination of what
government bodies, research agencies, international bodies, universities and
aid agencies are doing to pursue the path of sustainable development.

IJESD will offer:

* Papers: scientific descriptions of projects, experiments or pilot projects
dealing with environment and sustainability-related issues
* Articles: short texts outlining approaches, methods or case studies in
which approaches to environment and sustainability are described
* Book reviews: describing recent publications on the topic and on related
* News: items, events and announcements of general interest to all readers
* A balanced provision of information on matters of regional and
international relevance.
