Trends In Sustainable Development: Chemicals, Mining, Transport And Waste Management
PDF File Size: 18.13 MB | Download   
This report highlights key developments and recent trends in chemicals, mining, transport and waste management. In addition to considering these four themes, the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) addresses the progress of the “Ten Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption & Production Patterns” as a thematic issue during its 18th and 19th sessions (2010–2011). Though the ecological footprint is only one of a number of possible measures of sustainability, there is broad agreement that a change to consumption and production patterns and technologies is needed in order to increase resource efficiency and reduce waste dramatically. This would permit living standards to be maintained in developed countries and to continue to rise in developing countries without exceeding the carrying capacities of critical ecosystems and life-support systems. Using the technology wedge metaphor which Pacala and Socolow (2004) applied to greenhouse gas emissions, we can identify multiple options (or wedges) which would contribute to closing the gap between BAU and sustainability (i.e., living on the resources of a single planet).
