State of the World 2014

Governing for Sustainability

Island Press

The diverse efforts of grassroots movements around the world are the subject of the latest volume in the Worldwatch Institute’s esteemed State of the World series. The 2014 edition examines both barriers to responsible governance and success stories. The result is a clear-eyed yet ultimately optimistic assessment of citizens’ ability to govern for sustainability. By highlighting both obstacles and opportunities, State of the World 2014 shows how to effect change within and beyond the halls of government. This volume will be especially useful for policymakers, environmental nonprofits, and students of environmental studies, sustainability, or economics.

Worldwatch was the first independent research institute devoted to the analysis of global environmental concerns. It quickly became recognized by opinion leaders around the world for its accessible, fact-based analysis of critical global issues.
