Although it is now widely recognized throughout societies around the world that humankind is straining the capacity of our planet, the responses of the many parties who need to come together to solve the myriad challenges have in general been sectoral in their approach. In this book, eight highly experienced authors from academia, intergovernmental negotiation, and diplomacy each present their own perspective and assess prospects for progress. The necessity for interdisciplinarity of approach, and for partnership and altruism on an unprecedented scale for solution, and for new negotiation and arbitration frameworks, emerge as inevitable conclusions.
Eight experienced authors from academia, international business, intergovernmental negotiation, and diplomacy assess the challenges of balancing the economic and social aspirations of society with the environmental capacity of Planet Earth, recognizing the warning signals of climate change and increasing hazards of drought, flood, and famine.
