This course helps make links between the concept of sustainable development and implementation of public policies, through addressing first the concept of sustainable development that is based on economic development, environmental development, and social development. It also introduces the most important outcomes of global summits on the identification of the goals of sustainable development, or what needs to be done globally, regionally and locally. It also deals with the most important challenges facing the process of turning goals into realistic policies, such as the challenge of population, environment, energy, health, education and others. In addition to that the course then addresses the role of public policy in the implementation of the goals of sustainable development on the international and domestic levels. The student is given an opportunity during this course to do an analysis of the magnified image of sustainable development from a global perspective, and local perspective and how each person can contribute to the achievement of sustainable development.
