Lessons from 10 Years of the Equator Prize
This book represents a significant contribution to the literature on sustainable development, and draws from a uniquely rich and detailed body of case study material on 127 Equator Prize winning communities. We hope that the lessons presented here are of value to national and international policymakers, leaders in civil society and community-based organizations, and others.
As a knowledge broker in sustainable development practice, UNDP recognizes and embraces its responsibility to learn from what is working on the ground and to assist governments in the process of taking success to scale. It is ultimately only from thoughtful reflection on what is working, and what is not, that we will create a more enlight- ened policy landscape which empowers real achievement towards sustainable development.
