Development: Greening the Economy, Volume 55, Number 1, March 2012
This edition of Development, published by the Society for International Development (SID) in partnership with UNRISD, includes papers presented at the UNRISD conference, Green Economy and Sustainable Development: Bringing Back the Social Dimension, on topics ranging from global crises to grassroots conservation and development projects. The journal is timed to contribute to the discussion and debates around Rio+20 review.

According to the editor, Wendy Harcourt, "The journal raises some important concerns for Rio+20 if the world governments try to apply bureaucratically a green print of the economy without ways to differentiate, respect and nurture the myriad of the world's cultures and peoples’ diverse needs, ways of living and enjoying well-being....The articles offer various suggestions about the strategies, questions to be asked and ideas to be shaped, all with a sense of dismay at the mistakes of the past, but hope in the increasing voices of discord, as befits the times in which we write."
