This brief explores what it means to live in a world that is increasingly connected: the local influences the global and vice-versa, often in new and unpredictable ways, creating risks and opportunities. The brief also looks at:
– Mapping out cross-scale connections can help identify solutions that may lie beyond problems’ perceived borders.
– Impacts of development interventions will be felt – and should be accounted for – beyond local/national borders.
The brief is produced by Guidance for Resilience in the Anthropocene: Investments for Development (GRAID), a programme hosted by the Stockholm Resilience Centre and funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).
