    Bond A. J., Dockerty T., Lovett A., Riche A. B., Haughton A. J., Bohan D. A., Sage R. B., Shield I. F., Finch J. W., Turner M. M. and Karp A. Learning how to deal with values, frames and governance in Sustainability Appraisal, Regional Studies. The effectiveness of Sustainability Appraisal is highly contested because of the value-based nature of the assumed goal (sustainable development), because effectiveness itself can be determined through different theoretical framings, and because good governance does not guarantee sustainable outcomes. Drawing on learning derived from the literature and a case study examining biomass crop planting on a regional scale in England, an approach for managing the Sustainability Appraisal development and application process is proposed. This incorporates analytic-deliberative techniques as the basis for more pluralism, combined with constraints mapping. Such an approach, it is suggested, can better accommodate multiple framings.

Apprendre comment traiter les valeurs, les cadres et la gouvernance dans une evaluation du Developpement durable, Regional Studies. L'efficacite de l'evaluation du Developpement durable est tres discutee a cause des caracteristiques du pretendu objectif (a savoir le developpement durable) qui sont bases sur les valeurs, parce que l'on peut determiner l'efficacite elle-meme a partir de differents cadres theoriques, et car la bonne gouvernance n'assure pas de resultats durables. Puisant dans l'apprentissage qui provient de la documentation et dans une etude de cas qui examine la plantation de cultures biomasses sur le plan regional en Angleterre, on propose une facon de gerer le processus de mise au point et de mise en oeuvre du Developpement durable. Cela comprend des techniques analytico-deliberatives comme la base d'un pluralisme augmente, conjointement avec une elaboration des contraintes. On suggere qu'une telle facon peut mieux s'adapter aux cadres multiples.

Die Wirksamkeit einer Uberprufung der Nachhaltigkeit ist stark umstritten, weil das angenommene Ziel (nachhaltige Entwicklung) eine wertbasierte Natur aufweist, weil sich die Wirksamkeit selbst in verschiedenen theoretischen Rahmen ermitteln lasst und weil eine gute Steuerung kein Garant fur nachhaltige Ergebnisse ist. Aufbauend auf den Ergebnissen der Literatur und einer Fallstudie, bei der der Anbau von Biomassepflanzen in regionalem Massstab in England untersucht wird, wird ein Ansatz fur die Leitung der Entwicklung und Anwendung einer Nachhaltigkeitsprufung vorgeschlagen. Hierbei kommen analytisch-deliberative Techniken als Grundlage fur mehr Pluralismus sowie eine Kartierung der Einschrankungen zum Einsatz. Durch einen solchen Ansatz lassen sich unserer These zufolge verschiedenartige Rahmen besser miteinander vereinbaren.

La eficacia de la valoracion de la sostenibilidad se cuestiona en gran medida debido a la naturaleza basada en los valores del objetivo supuesto (desarrollo sostenible), a que la misma eficacia puede determinarse a traves de diferentes estructuras teoricas y a que la buena gobernanza no garantiza resultados sostenibles. Basandonos en el aprendizaje derivado de la literatura y un estudio de caso en el que se examina la plantacion de biomasa a escala regional en Inglaterra, proponemos un planteamiento para gestionar el desarrollo y la puesta en practica de la valoracion de la sostenibilidad. Anadimos tecnicas analiticas deliberativas como base para mas pluralismo, combinado con un examen de las restricciones. Sugerimos que un planteamiento de este tipo puede adaptarse mejor a las diferentes estructuras.
