CECAN welcomed Dr Dorothy Lucks from Australia to give a seminar on "Evaluating Sustainability – Is It Possible? A Case for Focusing on Evaluating Decision-Making for Sustainable Development."
The complexity of sustainability is immense, yet many policies and plans now have sustainability as an aim. While it is difficult to empirically evaluate sustainability outcomes, it is possible to evaluate the process of decision-making to identify if decision-making is becoming more informed and working towards balancing social, economic and environmental priorities. Dorothy gave examples from doctoral research of two case studies, one in Australia, one in the Philippines on decision-making processes.
