News & comment on sustainable development

Consulting on waste prevention

Ahead of the first Waste Prevention Programme for England, Defra is seeking views on proposed responsibilities. We round up other government news, including the latest statistics on local authority waste.

Our focus on recent sustainable development news from Scotland looks at a plan to protect Scotland's biodiversity, an initiative for greater resource efficiency, guidance on sustainability reporting, and more.

An extract from a recent book on collaboration for sustainable development considers how to find collaborators, while a new user guide provides an introduction to the Individual, Social and Material approach to behaviour change.
