Who pollutes in Scotland? A prelude to an analysis of sustainability policies in a devolved context

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The notion of sustainable development has begun to figure prominently in the regional, as well as the national, policy concerns of many industrialized countries. Indicators have typically been used to monitor changes in economic, environmental and social variables to show whether economic development is on a sustainable path. This paper focuses on pollution in Scotland and analyses the sustainability policies in a devolved political context.
