Building a world of resilient communities

ResilienceWhat is Resilience? Resilience is a rich and complex concept. It has roots in systems theory, and it has a variety of interpretations and applications including for ecosystems management, disaster preparedness, and even community planning.

Natural Capital for Nothing

environmental impactThe notion of “externalities” has become familiar in environmental circles. It refers to costs imposed by businesses that are not paid for by those businesses. For instance, industrial processes can put pollutants in the air that increase public health costs, but the public, not the polluting businesses, picks up the tab. In this way, businesses privatize profits and publicize costs.

Is Sustainability Still Possible?

worldwatchState of the World 2013: Is Sustainability Still Possible? Every day, we are presented with a range of “sustainable” products and activities—from “green” cleaning supplies to carbon offsets - but with so much labeled as “sustainable,” the term has become essentially sustainababble, at best indicating a practice or product slightly less damaging than the conventional alternative.

Earth Rights and Sharing World Resources

For the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) this is reason enough to devote “The Current Column” to energy and climate issues at regular intervals this year.

Die neue Nüchternheit unserer Zivilisation

DesillusionDie Welt wird immer besser und immer schlimmer... und wer aus welchen Gründen auch immer nur eine Seite oder (s)einen Ausschnitt sehen möchte, trägt jeweils zum Gegenteil bei... Und so lassen wir uns in unserer Trägheit gerne auf Projektionsflächen wie z.B. Trump oder Putin oder tausend andere Möglichkeiten ablenken und wollen nicht wissen, dass dieses nur Ergebnisse von Ursachen sind, die uns in ihrer Komplexität verwirren und überfordern... Und die Überforderung ist natürlich nicht so zufällig wie viele denken und behaupten, und es gibt sogar eine recht einfach zu erkennende Struktur, wie die Fäden gezogen werden.
