Sustainable development is the most important challenge facing humanity in the 21 st century. The global economic growth in the recent past has indeed exhibited marked progress in many countries. Nevertheless, the issues of income disparity, poverty, gender gaps, and malnutrition are not uncommon in the global landscape, in spite of the upward growth of the economy and technological advances. This grim picture is further exacerbated by our growing human population, unmindful resource use, ever-increasing consumption trends, and changing climate. In order to protect humanity and preserve the planet, the United Nations issued the "2030 agenda for sustainable development," which includes but is not limited to sustainable production and consumption practices, e.g. in a sustainable bioeconomy. The hallmark of the sustainable bioeconomy is a paradigm shift from a fossil-fuel-based economy to a biological-based one, which is driven by the virtues of sustainability, efficient utilization of resources, and "circular economy." As the sustainable bioeconomy is based on the efficient utilization of biological resources and societal transformations, it holds the immense potential to achieve the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. This book shares valuable insights into the linkages between the sustainable bioeconomy and Sustainable Development Goals, making it an essential read for policymakers, researchers and students of environmental studies.

The research aims to approach the issues not only from the point of view of state but from the point of view of all actors to whom responsibility is assigned while mentioning the implementation in Turkey by assessing the philosophy of Local Agenda 21 Program. The implementation of the Harran Municipality implementing the Local Agenda 21 program was investigated within this scope. The level of achievement of the Local Agenda 21 adopted in Turkey and policies in the reviewed sample implementation were assessed. The paper includes proposals that will allow all local administrations in Turkey to query their own programs within the framework of the local Agenda 21 action program in a manner to participate in the process o urban transformation, to come up with local sustainable development policies and establish short and long term strategic plans aimed at solving problems.

Realities of Sustainable Development
49,00 € *

Research in the field of sustainable development (SD) suggests that the way in which sustainable development thinking has been infiltrated from a global perspective down to a more local one, leaves room for question as to whether or not the ideas of SD are being internalised in the self-same way by all stakeholders. This study aims to investigate whether SD thinking is universal across different groups in order to deduce how effective implementation of sustainable practices can and will be. The project is a case study of SD thinking amongst local residents of the small Swedish community of Östersidan in comparison to SD thinking from a local government perspective as proliferated through the Local Agenda 21 objectives of the local municipality under which Östersidan falls. The investigation was conducted by a series of semi-structured, in-depth interviews with local permanent residents and local municipal officials. Analysis was made using a constant comparative approach to analysing qualitative data.

Ecology Revisited
194,39 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

As concerns about humankind's relationship with the environment move inexorably up the agenda, this volume tells the story of the history of the concept of ecology itself and adds much to the historical and philosophical debate over this multifaceted discipline. The text provides readers with an overview of the theoretical, institutional and historical formation of ecological knowledge. The varied local conditions of early ecology are considered in detail, while epistemological problems that lie on the borders of ecology, such as disunity and complexity, are discussed. The book traces the various phases of the history of the concept of ecology itself, from its 19 th century origins and antecedents, through the emergence of the environmental movement in the later 20 th century, to the future, and how ecology might be located in the environmental science framework of the 21 st century.The study of 'ecological' phenomena has never been confined solely to the work of researchers who consider themselves ecologists. It is rather a field of knowledge in which a plurality of practices, concepts and theories are developed. Thus, there exist numerous disciplinary subdivisions and research programmes within the field, the boundaries of which remain blurred. As a consequence, the deliberation to adequately identify the ecological field of knowledge, its epistemic and institutional setting, is still going on. This will be of central importance not only in locating ecology in the frame of 21 st century environmental sciences but also for a better understanding of how nature and culture are intertwined in debates about pressing problems, such as climate change, the protection of species diversity, or the management of renewable resources.

Enabling Asia to Stabilise the Climate
68,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book presents good practices in Asia and ASEAN countries for effectively promoting advances in response to climate change, which can help to achieve sustainable development in Asia and around the world. As a proposal, the aim is to influence the discussions at COP 21 by providing a positive agenda with concrete actions from an Asian perspective. The book is divided into three parts. Part 1 describes the greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction scenario from an Asian perspective and in line with global 2 ° targets. Based on modeling analysis, the studies demonstrate the theoretical potentials and send the policymakers at COP 21 the positive message that “Asia can reach the target.” As Asian countries vary in terms of their economic strength, country-specific scenario studies for the two giants China and India as well as for Japan and Vietnam are introduced to show the different approaches for each country. Part 2 shows successful examples of how modeling analysis are reflected in actual policy development, which provides practical guidelines to help policymakers develop their own roadmaps with stakeholder dialogue, not only in Asia but also in other regions of the world. The Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) roadmap development in Thailand as well as the Iskandar Malaysia project show at the country and city level how researchers and policymakers are working closely to succeed. Part 3 focuses on a number of sector-specific activities including transportation, forestry, capacity development, and inventory work in Asia. Rather than discussing the Low Carbon Society (LCS) concept in detail, the respective chapters highlight unique, concrete, and practically applicable examples from Asia, showing how Asian countries are addressing climate change mitigation issues in a collaborative manner, an approach that can be replicated in other regions. While the ultimate goal of this book is to facilitate international climate regime making, local government and international organizations (United Nations, World Bank, and others) officers, researchers, international NGO/NPOs, consultants, students (particularly those studying international relationships or environmental studies), as well as reporters will find this book useful in broadening their understanding of low-carbon development in Asia.
