Managing Complexity: Earth Systems and Strategies for the Future Hardback

Part of the Routledge Studies in Sustainability series

Description

Managing Complexity: Earth Systems and Strategies for the Future introduces and explores systems and complexity in relation to near-synchronous world and environmental problems.

These relate to but are not limited to water, biological diversity, worldwide climate change, trade and conflict, global migration and the quest for sustainable development.

Complemented by discussion of the new era of the Anthropocene, its many manifestations, and Earth system properties such as planetary boundaries and tipping points this book offers practical suggestions for how a sustainable future for humanity can be realised. Specifically discussed in Managing Complexity: Earth Systems and Strategies for the Future are innovation, education and capacity building, application of the natural and social sciences and new paths towards sustainability based on industrial development and engineering, as well as in diplomacy and foreign aid.

The book's conclusions discuss the ambitious yet vital reforms the authors propose as routes to a sustainable existence.

This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of sustainability, sustainable development and complexity theory.
