The contribution of six developing countries' industry to sustainable development
The extent to which recent changes in industrial development and environmental policies in six countries (Chile, China, Pakistan, Tunisia, Turkey and Zimbabwe) have more closely aligned the objectives of industrial development with those of sustainable development are assessed in this article. The six countries did not make great advances in policy integration in support of sustainable development in the 1990s in terms of policy coordination, cooperation or coherence, but some did better than others. The countries showed considerable variation in the effectiveness with which they implemented their industrial development and environmental policy regimes. Lastly, the impact of industry on sustainable development also varied considerably, depending on which economic, social and environmental parameters were used to assess their contribution.
