A new SEI collaboration in the region focuses on the nexus between scarce resources – the only route to sustainable supplies of water, food and energy.
By pulling together key messages on climate science, adaptation and mitigation – plus insights from special reports on disasters and on renewable energy – the synthesis will be particularly valuable to policy-makers.
Researchers led the audience on a journey from Scottish whisky distilleries, to illegal sawmills in Borneo, linking science, to policy, to impacts on ordinary people.
A new paper in PNAS shows that Amazon deforestation is becoming harder to detect and control, and the measures that slowed deforestation to date need to be supplemented by new approaches, including for smallholders.
Growing populations, rapid urbanization and increased consumption put unprecedented pressure on land, water and air resources. We show how to manage these resources together to protect food security, human health and biodiversity.
Emissions of greenhouse gases are built into our economic systems. Our research shows the benefits of a low-carbon future and describes how we get there by mitigating and adapting to climate change.
The social, institutional and political setting is vital for improving livelihoods, sustain- ability and resilience. We provide insights into good governance for sustainable develop- ment in the face of social and ecological change.
The global economy has brought welfare and prosperity to the world. But it has also depleted natural resources and vital ecosystem services. We set out alternatives for a sustainable future, from the planetary scale down to local, on-the-ground solutions.
