Earth System Governance Project Blog

Let’s Try Something Different

by Victor Galaz

What is adaptiveness and innovation in earth system governance? How do we define it, and why does it matter? The Stockholm Resilience launched a web-log designed exclusively to the Earth System Governance community and conference participants of the 2009 Amsterdam Conference.

The blog includes interviews with prominent scholars in the field of earth system science and governance. They will all elaborate different aspects of adaptiveness and innovation in an era of global environmental change.

But the best part is: we invite all readers to add their own questions, comments and responses. We will use posted comments as we round up the discussions live at the 2009 Amsterdam conference and the semi-plenary “Adaptiveness and Innovation in Earth System Governance”.

We kick-start this process with the first post. The first topic is: “What is “Adaptiveness” – Really?” Listen to interviews with Frank Biermann (IVM, Netherlands), Louis Lebel (USER, Thailand) and Melissa Leach (STEPS, United Kingdom) as they explore this important concept. We want your comments, questions and responses.

See you in Amsterdam, and enjoy the blog
