Example text

The environment may be seen as playing an important role in this type of change. On the other hand, neoliberalism has entailed a ‘dramatic intensification of coercive, disciplinary forms of state intervention in order to impose market rule upon all aspects of social life’ (Brenner and Theodore, 2002: 5), including urban society’s marketized relationship with nature and the environment through sustainable development discourse. The social agenda of urban environmentalism Since the outlining of the big issues of global sustainability at the Rio Summit, local agendas are increasingly defined in terms of organizational and individual behaviour.

The result was a period of economic instability typical of restructuring programmes in the less developed countries and the concentration of wealth and income distribution. For much of the developing world, the economic benefits of environmentally inspired sustainable development has added up to little more than the tiny gestures of debt-for-nature swaps and carbon trading, whilst populations collapse into poverty and political instability.
