Green Dreams: A decade of missed targets

Green Dreams looks at the Government’s “green” targets over the last ten years highlighting a worrying high failure rate with little to show for hundreds of targets set. Examining the issue in more detail the report looks at exactly what has gone wrong over the last decade. Based on the lessons learnt the report suggests ways to ensure that targets be an effective tool of government, deployed simply and clearly to motivate change, rather than as a political tool that can hinder good governance as much as promote it.
