The project is an overview of the process whereby discourse on sustainable development was incorporated into environmental policy making in Pakistan in the form of National Conservations Strategy in 1992. Since then NCS has been reviewed but it is still considered a guiding policy document on environment in the country. The project is divided into three parts: the first part presents a description of environmental state of affairs in Pakistan especially, pre-NCS; part second deals with the process of NCS formulation process and shed light on various aspects of the process ranging from involvement of international institutions with the Government of Pakistan to the events and factors that influenced the overall outcomes of NCS; while in part third I have tried to analyze the NCS process with help of International Relations theorists belonging to constructivist and institutionalist strains of the discipline. The final part was endeavored to explain how the concept of international society can help to understand the cooperation of internalizing by the states the learning from international society norms- in this case sustainable development.
