Publications - a year in view

Dear Friends

I wanted to share with you what I have produced this year and what I already are planning for 2016.

This year has been a  very productive year. I have tried to comment on today's challenges and opportunities as well as a political commentry on the sustainable development agenda more generally.

I enjoy writing and had the opporunity to work with some great people this year.

Governance for Sustainable Development (May 2015) and I had the pleasure in editing it with  S. Luna, H. Lim, O. Rebedea, D. Banisar, and Q. McKew, A  New World Frontiers book . I also wrote two chapters on:
  • Key questions for an interlinked and coherent governance for the review and follow-up of the post 2015 agenda and its SDG and the Addis Ababa commitments, and 
  • Partnerships lessons from the first ten years of Type 2 Partnerships commitments 

The Handbook of Water and Health (October 2015) edited by Jamie Bartram. I contributed a chapter:
  •  International Policy with J. Bartram, G. Kayser and B.Gordon, B. on  published by Routledge

A number of these articles have appeared on other web sites but these are the original publishign homes.

I wanted to thank those of you who have read my blog over the last year or so. Readership this year has gone up considerable with the SDG negotiations to around 15,000 on a good month. I will be introducing more guest blogs next year and have started do that. In  particular I want to highlight some of the  next generation of sustainable development activists views.
