Facets of Sustainability

Edited by Dr Hezri Adnan, ISIS Malaysia in collaboration with Abdul Samad Hadi, Aldrie Amir, and Sarah Aziz from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. Published in Kuala Lumpur by UKM Press.

251 pages (2013) ISBN 978-967-412-165-5

As a development framework, sustainability offers a most promising choice of path to development for it gives a development matrix that balances the triple bottom line – the environment, the society, and the economics. More importantly, the pillars are to be viewed within broader spaces of humanity. In seventeen chapters, this book presents assorted views and insights on the various dimensions of sustainable development in Malaysia and beyond. The chapters draw on a range of disciplinary perspectives encompassing human geography, environmental chemistry, anthropology, development economics, law, urban studies and planning, forestry, public policy, geology and last but not least, ecology. Together the writings celebrate the intellectual acceptance of multi-disciplinarity as an important if not the only approach to address the complexity of sustainability both in theory and in practice. To implement the rich blend of ideas presented in this volume, the triple bottom line needs to be governed so that sustainability as a process is allowed to progress.

Towards a Green Economy: In Search of Sustainable Energy Policies for the Future

towards the green eco

Edited by Adnan A. Hezri and Wilhelm Hofmeister. Published in Singapore by Konrad Adenauer Stiftung and ISIS Malaysia.

175 pages (2012)  ISBN 978-981-07-1799-5

RM 40.00 [Available from ISIS Malaysia]

The transition to sustainable energy systems is still at an embryonic stage. As this energy transition involves hard choices politically, economically, and technologically, countries can benefit from a comparative lesson-drawing across geographical divides. In thirteen chapters, the book entitled “Towards a Green Economy: In Search of Sustainable Energy Policies for the Future” documents the vagaries of problem framing and policy responses by nine countries, all of which are guided by recurrent themes of energy transition, policy choices and green economy. The book’s analytical scope goes well beyond the commonly addressed structural issue in energy policy to encompass innovation in processes, institutions and new policy instruments for sustainable energy systems. Chapters 3 to 4 demonstrate the struggles of major energy consumers such as United States, China, India and Brazil in switching to cleaner energy sources. Chapters 7 and 8 concentrate on the cases of Malaysia and Laos. These two Southeast Asian countries are currently at different stages of economic development but share the common trait of a rising energy demand and associated social issues. The last four chapters (9-12) of the book present innovative energy policies by pioneering states such as France, Germany and Australia. Evidently from all chapters, there is no one-size-fits-all policy The subtitle of the book—in search of sustainable energy policies for the future— reflects the tentative nature of policy experiments undertaken so far.
