Facilitating A Sustainability Transition In Developing Countries: Proposal For A Global Advanced Research Project Agency For Sustainable Development
PDF File Size: 3.69 MB | Download   
While the world as a whole has made enormous strides in the past decades in advancing human and economic development, the challenges of sustainability are recognized as being increasingly central to continued progress in human well-being and prosperity. These challenges are enormous in scale, complex in nature, and there also is some urgency in addressing them, partly because of the significant human costs that they already entail and partly because of the potential of future enormous costs (as in the case of many environmental challenges). While there is no simple way to address these major sustainability challenges, give their scale and the interweaving of the drivers with the very fabric of our economic, social, and human existence, technology has the potential to play a major role in this process (see, for example, UNMP 2005). This is particularly important for developing countries, given that these challenges are pressing and urgent there. Yet leveraging the potential of technology for addressing sustainability challenges in developing countries is not a trivial exercise, given the uncertainties and the complexities of the technology innovation process in general and in relation to the sustainability transition, especially in the developing-country context.
