ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES

Environmental management is a global phenomenon, embracing all
businesses in all countries, whether or not there already exists an
organised response to managing environmental impacts.

Today, there are gross inequalities between the world's richest and
poorest nations in terms of income distribution, consumption patterns,
access to resources and environmental impact. Yet both the developed
North and the developing South are committed, at least in words, to
achieving sustainable development.

Public awareness of environmental issues in the North has been rising in
recent years and further degradation is now largely minimised through
more stringent regulatory regimes, voluntary agreements and growing
consumer and stakeholder pressure on corporations. Still, the North is
continuing to lead an environmentally unsustainable lifestyle as
environmental improvements are nullified by overall increases in
consumption levels.

In the South, a billion people still do not have access to the most
basic needs. Poor countries need to accelerate their consumption growth
if they are to ensure that the lives of their people are enriched.
However, with rapid economic growth and corresponding increases in
consumption now under way, their environmental impact is soon to become
substantially greater. In a world that strives towards stemming global
crises such as climate change, the path already taken by the rich and
high-growth economies over the past century cannot be repeated by the
South if the desired objective is to create a future that is truly
sustainable.

'Growing Pains' examines environmental management in the South from a
number of perspectives. It is designed to stimulate the discussion about
the role that corporations and national and international organisations
play in sustainable  development. It does not offer panaceas, as each
country has its own problems and opportunities; and, after almost 50
years of failed panacea-oriented economic development policy transfer
from the North to the South, it is time to abandon hope for universal
solutions and instead look to individual approaches that work.

The book is divided into five themes: globalisation; the role of
business; a focus on national strategies; trade and the environment; and
the organisational and structural challenges of sustainable development.

With contributions from an outstanding collection of authors in both the
developed and developing worlds including UNIDO; the Thailand
Environment Institute, Arthur D. Little, Inc., Shell Peru; IUCN, the
Russian Academy of Sciences and IIED, this important and unique new book
presents a body of work that will provide essential reading for
businesses working in developing countries, environmental and
developmental NGOs and researchers engaged in the debate and sharing of
best practice in this increasingly critical subject area.

"Growing Pains is a monitor of how well we are doing in protecting
environmental goods in developing countries. Key actors—theoreticians
(development economists in particular), government ministers and policy
planners, chief executive officers in the private sector and their
advisers, and heads of institutions (national and multilateral)—will
surely identify with specific issues explored in this book."
