Hertz, T., Mancilla Garcia, M.. 2021. The Cod and the Cut: Intra-Active Intuitions. Frontiers in Sociology. http://dx.doi.org/10.3389/fsoc.2021.724751
Interest in causality is growing in sustainability science and it has been argued that a multiplicity of approaches is needed to account for the complexities of social-ecological dynamics. However, many of these approaches operate within perspectives that establish a separation between what has causal agency and all the rest, which is relegated to the role of background conditions. We argue that the distinction between causal...
Jericó-Daminello, C., Schröter, B., Mancilla Garcia, M., Albert, C.. 2021. Exploring perceptions of stakeholder roles in ecosystem services coproduction. Ecosystem Services. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.ecoser.2021.101353
Stakeholder groups engage in ecosystem services coproduction as both coproducers and beneficiaries. Stakeholder group perceptions of their own and each other’s roles in ecosystem services coproduction therefore influence how ecosystem services are provided in a given landscape. However, only a few studies have investigated self-perceived and attributed stakeholder group roles in this context. The aim of this paper is to assess...
Blasiak, R., Leander, E., Jouffray, J., Virdin, J.. 2021. Corporations and plastic pollution: Trends in reporting. Sustainable Futures. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.sftr.2021.100061
Research on pathways to reducing plastic pollution often concludes that greater action is needed by the private sector. Yet the private sector is not a monolithic or homogeneous entity. We compiled a novel library of 2,317 corporate reports from the world's 200 largest companies, by revenue, over a ten-year period (2010–2019) and used text mining tools to identify pronounced regional and sectoral variability in the extent to ...
Österblom, H., Blasiak, R.. 2021. Oil licences undermine Norway’s ocean leadership. Nature. http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/d41586-021-00445-w
As two of the 250 scientists who supported 14 heads of state in crafting the agreement for 100% sustainable ocean management by 2025 that was announced in December (see E. Solberg Nature 588, 9; 2020), we are deeply concerned. Just weeks later, Norway — co-leader of the initiative — announced 61 new licences for oil and gas exploration, and it plans to permit sea-bed mining as early as 2023. Such ‘business as usual’ is antithe...
Claudet, J., Amon, D., Blasiak, R.. 2021. Opinion: Transformational opportunities for an equitable ocean commons. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. http://dx.doi.org/10.1073/pnas.2117033118
A frontier mentality has been a defining aspect of human history. Often this sentiment is optimistically framed in the language of aspirations and opportunities. But it can also be accompanied by unsavory narratives of over-exploitation, inequity, and conflict. If any place on Earth can be considered a final frontier, it is perhaps the ocean’s “areas beyond national jurisdiction” (ABNJ), which are both distant (generally star...
Sumaila, U., Skerritt, D., Schuhbauer, A., Villasante, S., Cisneros-Montemayor, A., et.al. 2021. WTO must ban harmful fisheries subsidies. Science. http://dx.doi.org/10.1126/science.abm1680
Sustainably managed wild fisheries support food and nutritional security, livelihoods, and cultures. Harmful fisheries subsidies—government payments that incentivize overcapacity and lead to overfishing—undermine these benefits yet are increasing globally. World Trade Organization (WTO) members have a unique opportunity at their ministerial meeting in November to reach an agreement that eliminates harmful subsidies. We—a group...
Koh, N., Ituarte-Lima, C., Hahn, T.. 2021. Mind the Compliance Gap: How Insights from International Human Rights Mechanisms Can Help to Implement the Convention on Biological Diversity. Transnational Environmental Law. http://dx.doi.org/10.1017/s2047102521000169
Humanity is at a crossroads in addressing biodiversity loss. Several assessments have reported on the weak compliance with the Aichi Biodiversity Targets by the parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). To address this lack of compliance, the challenges in implementing and enforcing CBD obligations must be understood. Key implementation challenges of the CBD are identified through a content analysis of policy do...
Wyatt, K., Arkema, K., Wells-Moultrie, S., Silver, J., Lashley, B., Thomas, A., Kuiper, J., Guerry, A., Ruckelshaus, M.. 2021. Integrated and innovative scenario approaches for sustainable development planning in The Bahamas. Ecology and Society. http://dx.doi.org/10.5751/es-12764-260423
Using alternative future scenarios in development planning supports the integration of diverse perspectives and the joint consideration of the needs of humans and nature. Here, we report on the use of scenarios as an integral part of a two-year sustainable development planning process for Andros Island, The Bahamas. We combined qualitative and quantitative approaches to link stakeholder visions of the future of their island w...
Ahlström, H., Hileman, J., Wang-Erlandsson, L., García, M., Moore, M., Jonas, K., Pranindita, A., Kuiper, J., Fetzer, I., Jaramillo, F., Svedin, U.. 2021. An Earth system law perspective on governing social-hydrological systems in the Anthropocene. Earth System Governance. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.esg.2021.100120
The global hydrological cycle is characterized by complex interdependencies and self-regulating feedbacks that keep water in an ever-evolving state of flux at local, regional, and global levels. Increasingly, the scale of human impacts in the Anthropocene is altering the dynamics of this cycle, which presents additional challenges for water governance. “Earth system law” provides an important approach for addressing gaps in go...
Collste, D. (2021). Modeling Korpi and Palme’s ‘Paradox of Redistribution and Strategies of Equality.’ In R. Y. Cavana, B. C. Dangerfield, O. V. Pavlov, M. J. Radzicki, & I. D. Wheat (Eds.), Feedback Economics: Economic Modeling with System Dynamics (pp. 191–213). Springer International Publishing. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-030-67190-7
A new book entitled Feedback Economics: Economic Modeling with System Dynamics is the first comprehensive collection of the variety of ways system dynamics thinking can be applied to economic matters. The book enriches contemporary economic debate by shedding light on the feedback dynamics in economic systems that are often neglected, enabling the linking of economic and sustainability issues. Centre researcher David Collste...
