Governing the Sustainable Development

Les évolutions des administrations de l'environnement en Europe et aux États-Unis

Evolution of Environmental Administrations in Europe and United States

Résumé

In 2007 a new French “Ministry for sustainable development” was created, a "super Ministry" which houses the functions of the former Ministries of Environment, Energy, Housing, and Transport under one single roof. This merger applies to all levels of government, with the creation of large regional services for sustainable development. This mode of reform does not seem to be specific to the French case. At first glance, it echoes the concerns for more coordination and integration which have been already observed in several other countries including Germany and the United Kingdom. This workshop aims to compare different national situations regarding environmental administrations and their impact on public policies.
