Sustainability: A Rapid Review

Sustainability: A Rapid Review

December 2016

Mike Aiken


If you are interested to know what has been written about sustainability over the last few years but don’t have the time. Read our rapid review of the literature. 

The key questions for this brief review were to:



(a) Take a small sample of relevant UK and international literature, in order to provide some context for the interviews and discussion for the research into sustainability



(b) Undertake a quick review of examples from IVAR’s own research where this has appeared (directly or indirectly)



(c) Undertake a review of a sample of trust and foundations websites/annual reports to identify if and how ‘sustainability’ is used/talked about



We decided in May to extend coverage to include some US sources from research and consultancy organisations engaged with foundations and the non-profit sector, and to examine reports of organisations that had decided to not survive.
