Sustainable Governance provides the platform for 21st century innovation. Measuring sustainable governance is a key challenge for communities at all levels of government: global, national and local. This unit will examine the principles for assessing sustainable governance and the indicators that can allow communities to measure sustainable governance against goals and objectives. The unit will draw on the emerging international literature in sustainability assessment and measurement principles and draw examples from Europe, USA and Canada to provide a platform for considering the measurement of sustainable governance at a local level. This unit will be a useful tool kit for students interested in careers in the public and private sectors, planning, social and environmental management, social inclusion, local government and international development (NGOs and global institutions).
