Abstract

Sustainable development indicators (SDI) can define priorities, determine sustainable actions, evaluate policy options and legitimate government interventions. Sustainable development strategies and indicators used in Scotland, however, show a lack of consistency with a potential for distortion of performance. The attributes of a sustainable Scotland are used to construct a model of stages through which to develop strategies and indicator sets for sustainable development.
