New book on green growth that actually works
Centre researchers contribute to first practical guide to offer proven techniques for planning and achieving nature-based solutions
The economy and the environment are often deemed an unlikely pair. Nature provides people with vital benefits, like clean drinking water, pollination of nutritious crops, and protection from storms, but the natural environment often goes unrecognized in the midst of economic development. The ecosystems that provide these essential benefits to people are undergoing rapid loss. A new, win-win approach to development is quickly gaining traction—one with nature as a key engine of health and economic prosperity.
The book Green Growth That Works: Natural Capital Policy and Finance Mechanisms from around the World is the first practical guide to offer proven techniques for planning and achieving nature-based solutions. Edited by leading experts from the Natural Capital Project, where the SRC is a partner, this book features 71 contributing authors and spans topics from coastal resilience in The Bahamas to sustainable cashmere in Mongolia to green infrastructure in Washington, DC.
“This book offers success stories from around the world and is designed to equip leaders to implement a green growth approach in their own community or region,” says lead editor Lisa Mandle. She is Lead Scientist at the Natural Capital Project.
Centre researchers Carl Folke, Victor Galaz, Beatrice Crona, Line Gordon, Lisen Schultz and Henrik Österblom, all part of SRC’s leadership group, have contributed with a chapter in the book, entitled "Collaborative Approaches to Biosphere Stewardship".
