On 'green governance'
Babacar Dieng and
International Journal of Sustainable Development, 2017, vol. 20, issue 1/2, 111-123
The 'greening' of a host of concepts and the like brings into focus the conceptual and practical implications of this rhetoric. It is based upon a consideration of environmental issues related to economic and social imperatives, largely epitomised by the concept of sustainable development, which influences the discourses and political projects outlined at the various Earth Summits, for example. 'Green governance', as part of the multifaceted scope of sustainable development, is based on a foresight, strategic and participatory approach to the sustainable management of natural resources, particularly in developing countries. It also suggests a bottom-up approach from the local to the global. The text breaks down as follows: we first note that the essence of governance is to provide a mode of coordination and proceed to analyse what it is. Next we examine the concept of 'green governance' and present it as a method of government, and finally conclude with the normative character of the concept.
