Description
Summary:The Regional LCA Competence Laboratory - established in the Institute of World and Regional Economics - is recently working at the elaboration of a demonstrative project which can serve the ambitious goal to find the way to develop a methodology for measuring regional sustainable development on LCA basis. As new approach, we make efforts to fulfil the requirements of broader sustainable development concept, somehow combining it with the product-specific, plant-level modelling techniques of LCA analysis. Both of the new approach elements are challenging, during the elaboration we had to face with severe problems. In this paper we gather the most relevant dilemmas of sustainable development measurement. After briefly summarising the current trends in SD measurement we define the problematic factors which have not been yet solved, and create the general dilemmas of SD measurement.
