Resource description

This paper presents a partial review of written and verbal contributions to a workshop entitled "Pragmatism and Effective Policy-making for Environment and Development". The workshop - designed to be an interdisciplinary contribution to policy discussions surrounding issues of sustainable development - was held in Abisko, Sweden. Three case studies - food security, energy for development, and international indebtness - were used as entry points for identifying over-arching themes and commodities in the causes and possible solutions of problems in the environment-development nexus. The workshop aim was to characterize the dynamics of development processes and to look at biases, distortions, and other correctable factors that currently contribute toward adverse trends. The focus of the current paper is on the case-studies and the general environment-development policy issues that these illustrate
