Abstract

Since Communism collapsed at the end of the 1980s, the transition towards a market-based economy has been considerably influenced by the neoclassical economic approach to the reform process. This has often ignored the establishment of adequate institutional frameworks, resulting in high transition costs and the side-lining of environmental concerns. This paper takes a holistic approach to the transformation of post-Communist economies that emphasises, in addition to socio-economic and political dimensions, the importance of appropriate institutional developments in the area of environmental sustainability. Core development values and objectives need to be significantly re-evaluated, if long-term sustainability prospects are to be effectively pursued.
