Sustainable Development Index in Hong Kong: Approach, Method and Findings
Tso, Geoffrey K. F.; Yau, Kelvin K. W.; Yang, C. Y.
Social Indicators Research, v101 n1 p93-108 Mar 2011
Sustainable development is a priority area of research in many countries and regions nowadays. This paper illustrates how a multi-stakeholders engagement process can be applied to identify and prioritize the local community's concerns and issues regarding sustainable development in Hong Kong. Ten priority areas covering a wide range of community's concerns in relation to the economic growth, societal development and environmental protection have been identified. An index is then constructed based on these priority areas to track the public's views on the progress of Hong Kong towards a more sustainable city.
