Water security : the water-food-energy-climate nexus : the World Economic Forum water initiative by World Economic Forum( )

14 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The world is on the brink of the greatest crisis it has ever faced: a spiraling lack of fresh water. Groundwater is drying up as water demands for food production, for energy, and for manufacturing are surging. Water is emerging as a headline geopolitical issue and worsening water security will soon have dire consequences in many parts of the global economic system. Directed by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon at the 2008 Davos Annual Meeting, the World Economic Forum assembled the world's foremost group of public, private, non-governmental organization and academic experts to examine the water crisis issue from all perspectives. The result of their work is this stark, non-technical overview of where we will be by 2025 if we take a business-as-usual approach to (mis)managing our water resources. Equally stunning are the potential solutions and the recommendations that the group presents. All are included in this landmark publication. Water Security contains compelling commentary from leading decision-makers, past and present. The commentary is supported by analysis from leading academics of how the world economy will be affected if world leaders cannot agree on solutions. The book suggests how business and politics need to manage energy-food-water-climate nexus as leaders negotiate details of the climate regime that replace Kyoto Protocols
Harnessing the Fourth Industrial Revolution for life on land : towards an inclusive bio-economy by Gill Cassar( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The stress on the earth’s natural systems caused by human activity has considerably worsened in the 25 years since the 1992 Rio Earth Summit in Brazil. As a result of the “great acceleration” in human economic activity since the mid-20th century, research from many earth system scientists’ suggests that life on land could be entering a period of unprecedented environmental systems change. These are wide-ranging and serious impacts on the earth’s land systems resulting from human activity. Yet, at the same time as this great acceleration in human activity has put unprecedented pressure on our earth systems, so too has an incredible transformation taken place in our science and technology capabilities. It is now possible to understand and model complex systems at unprecedented speed and scale
