Accountability in a globalized world
January 2007

From the editor

Accountability is a buzzword of the 21st century. But what does it mean to the NGOs, scientists, governments and companies in our conservation community?

This issue of World Conservation takes a look at how the pressure for greater accountability is playing out in the areas of environment and development. Are demands for good governance and transparency fundamentally changing the way governments, the private sector and NGOs operate? What more needs to be done, and who is responsible for driving the necessary changes? The following articles show how an elusive concept is translating into some tangible changes.

Industry sectors such as finance and tourism are making tentative steps towards greater accountability. Certification is helping the marine aquarium industry reduce its social and economic impact, and increased civil pressure is forcing governments to tackle illegal logging.

What efforts are you or your organization making on the road to greater accountability? What examples of best practice have you come across? We welcome your feedback and will post comments in the next issue of World Conservation as well as on this website.
