The guide was initiated by Stakeholder Forum and the Commonwealth Secretariat in response to the perceived 'knowledge gap' on the history and dynamics of global governance for sustainable development. As the 'institutional framework for sustainable development' has been identified as one of the two core themes for the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD 2012), it is hoped that the guide will provide the necessary background information on global sustainable development governance to allow both governmental and non-governmental stakeholders to familiarize themselves with the key issues more comprehensively. As the topic of 'sustainable development governance' is potentially vast, the guide has been broken down into four distinct sections: Concepts for Sustainable Development Governance; Global Institutions for Sustainable Development Governance; Reform Proposals for Sustainable Development Governance; Processes for Sustainable Development Governance.
