Sustainability A-Test

Many different tools are currently available for carrying out parts of a policy assessment for sustainable development. The purpose of SustainabilityA-Test is to examine the theoretical and conceptual basis of the tools and their uses based on a literature review of applications of the tools and a case study.

The main deliverable of the project is an internet-based handbook which aims to support policy makers on the verge of making a sustainability assessment with finding the most suitable tools for doing so.
