Kestliku arenguga seotud juhtimispraktikatest võib leida hulgaliselt tekst. Siinviidatu leidis oma koha peamiselt põhjusel, et tegeleb ühe konkreetse juhtumiga ning sestap võib pakkuda inspiratsiooni nii uurijatele kui juhtidele-ametnikele-poliitikutele. Tekst on vabalevis ja pikki kommentaare ei vaja.
Kontekstiks kestlikust arengust:
Despite the aforementioned difﬁculty in unambiguously deﬁning the concept of sustainability, an early deﬁnition of the concept of sustainable development in the Brundtland Report of the World Commission on Environmental and Development (WCED) of 1987 can be identiﬁed. This document deﬁnes sustainable development as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” (World Commission on Environment and Development 1987). Furthermore, it states that sustainable development is to be understood as “a process in which the exploitation of resources, the direction of investment, the orientation of technological development and institutional change are all in harmony, and enhance the present and future potential for the satisfaction of human aspirations and needs”.
Environmental sustainability, considered in terms of the ability to maintain the availability of natural resources over time; Economic sustainability, understood as the capacity to produce lasting wealth through the rational use of available resources; Social sustainability, which can be understood as the ability to ensure access to services considered fundamental (security, health, education) and to guarantee conditions of wellbeing (serenity, sociality) in an equitable manner between current and future generations.
The role of public administration, and in particular of local authorities, in implementing sustainability is fundamental: The municipality is the institutional point of reference closest to the citizen and to economic and social organizations and is responsible for promoting a culture of sustainable development by drawing up a comprehensive, multi-level strategy and setting an example for the behavior of the community (Laurian et al. 2017).

Moreover, the choice of a case study is inspired by the approach of institutional processualism (Barzelay and Gallego 2006): Just as the processualist approach is particularly attentive to interaction during the process (Abbott 2001), and the institutional approach considers how interaction is inﬂuenced by a stable context (Thelen 1992), institutional processualism is strongly interested in how interaction can be nurtured by the context (Tendler 1997).

Political will. The lack of real political will to develop a sustainability management model is perceived at a managerial level and throughout the administrative structure, thus undermining the effectiveness of the model itself;
