National Strategies for Sustainability: Options for New Zealand

Klaus Bosselmann

This e-book reviews national strategies for achieving sustainable development in the European Union, the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Taking a comparative perspective, it identifies the main features of advanced national strategies  (e.g. goals, comprehensiveness, effectiveness) and contrasts them with efforts in New Zealand (lagging behind most OECD countries). The book provides state-of-the-art guidance for developing a national strategy for sustainability in New Zealand as well as in other countries.

Water Rights and Sustainability

Edited by Klaus Bosselmann and Vernon Tava

This book, written by seven of New Zealand and Australia's leading scholars in environmental law and resource management, looks at water in lakes, rivers, coastal areas and water extracted from recycled sewerage. It examines particularly the application of property rights and possible market approaches to a resource that has always been thought to transcend conventional notions of ownership, also considering the potential assertion of native title to water.

Volume two

Concerned with scientific assessments and the right mix of economic and regulatory instruments, the book will be of use to the public sector, to business, to lawyers, planners and anyone else interested in climate change issues.
