Sustainability and resilience planning for local governments: The quadruple bottom line strategy

With concerns about the environment shaping federal, state, and local governmental policies, public administrators are increasingly being called to account for how government is addressing sustainability and resilience. Not only that. As those concerns continue to evolve, the concepts invoked and language used to discuss those concerns change, making it difficult for public administrators to keep abreast of developments and to plan accordingly. To address this evolution of concepts, public administrators need a “primer” which identifies the issues for professional practice related to sustainability and resilience. A volume like this must also assist those officials to grasp the scope of the challenges posed and how they might plan to address them successfully.
