Episode 4: Earth System Governance and Sustainable Development
In less than a decade from now in the year 2030, SDGs would near their end. Almost all the countries have adopted this framework and incorporated it in their intervention programs. However, never before has the gulf between the global north and global south been this apparent. An urgent need for co-operation has not materialized yet which involves the transfer of technology, accessibility and most importantly funding. In the 2015 Paris summit, nations came together to achieve a voluntary declaration to cut carbon emissions to keep the rise in temperature within 2 degrees C. Four of these six years saw the topmost emitter- the United States- out of the agreement.
The urgency of the issue has led many experts to question our approach towards viewing environment systems or its more relevant terminology - Earth System Governance. This provides a fresh lease of life to the thinking of environmental issues, a pathway to explore novel solutions and ideas, and more effective governance to cope with the transitions that will take place in the coming decade.
