This paper draws on theoretical literature and practical experience to explore the challenges that sustainable development poses for established governance practices. It suggests a series of possible avenues for further research and collaborative investigation that could be pursued by the federal government. A roundtable with officials from a number of federal departments as well as other interested parties reviewed a draft of this paper in December 2008.
