I have to prepare a “policy brief” for the decision maker, in order to help him/her reach an informed decision on a current sustainable development problem requiring policy alternatives.
The program I chose was The Sierra Club. http://www.sierraclub.org/ They have chapters in The U.S. and Canada and the policy is their zero waste policy. You can use this policy and program or if you think there is a better policy out there, let me know and you can use that instead.
The assignment has two goals: first, to give you the opportunity to explore an international policy or program of your choice in some depth. Second, to show you how to carry out basic policy/program analysis to suggest future policy solutions to an existing environment-development problems.
This assignment requires you to do three things:
Summarize the objectives and current status of an existing international sustainable development policy or program
Evaluate its effectiveness in theory and in its real-life implementation
To propose recommendations
The paper is to be 2-5 pages. single spaced. Please let me know if you have any questions. I attached instructions for the paper and the policy brief. I can extend the time a few hours if needed.
