narrative and sources

You'll see I've edited substantially (the materially that's not directly relevant to policy is now in Sustainability.

On the history section, all the points made need proper references (I could pick these up from an appropriate history - e.g. Dobson). Also, in my view there needs to be some narrative context, not just a list of events and agreements - how did these relate to each other, and with what consequences for policy. I've added some of this sort of context to Brundtland, and think it is necessary throughout the section. --Tom Henfrey (talk) 14:08, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Alternative Starting Point

Neither the structure nor the lead text look appropriate to me: I've set up an alternative version that matches the sub-headings in the contents at Sustainability as a policy driver

I'll delete the duplicate page Sustainability, and suggest we do the same with this one! --Tom Henfrey (talk) 16:29, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Tom, I was just starting on it, but we can continue like this. The figures are enormous and I need to learn how to make them small. Want to do that now. --Gil Penha-Lopes (talk) 13:28, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Regarding the heading, yes, was just a sentence and then I would get back to it. Thanks. Looks great. --Gil Penha-Lopes (talk) 13:46, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Looks like we've been working on this simultaneously: I want to migrate some of the peripheral text over to a general page on Sustainability, to keep this one focused. Also some of the general stuff from Wikipedia is inappropriate - especially the ethnocentric references to 'tribes' etc. (in general, Wikipedia is not a citeable source) so I plan to take it out.--Tom Henfrey (talk) 13:51, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
