Re: Fwd: under utilization of voluntary programs

Dear Sherry,

One of the best discussions of the effectiveness of voluntary programs is:

Harrison, K. 1998.  "Talking with the donkey: Cooperative approaches to environmental protection" Journal of Industrial Ecology. 2(3): 51-72.  Available at <http://mitpress.mit.edu/JIE>, click on "sample articles."

The classic prescriptive analysis of what should go into a voluntary agreement can be found at:

NGD (New Directions Group). 1997.  Criteria and principles for the use of voluntary or non-regulatory initiatives to achieve environmental policy objectives. Available at http://www.newdirectionsgroup.org/projects/voluntary.php.

Good luck with your work.

of arriving safely in one pretty and well preserved piece,
but to slide across the finish line broadside, thoroughly
used up, worn out, leaking oil, shouting GERONIMO!!!
