Natural Capital Accounting (NCA) and climate change represent critical facets of modern environmental stewardship and economic planning. The depletion of natural resources and the escalating threats of biodiversity loss necessitate a concerted effort to recognize and account for the value of Earth’s ecosystems. This imperative takes center stage in ensuring the sustainable management of our planet’s natural capital.
We live on an urban planet, one that will become even more urban in coming decades. The polycrisis of biodiversity loss and climate change is interacting dynamically with urbanization creating a locus of impact both by, and on, cities and urbanized regions.
Energy transitions are underway everywhere simultaneously, or so one wants to think. They are in fact resisted vigorously, reshaped surreptitiously, and stripped of meaning altogether upon closer examination in unfortunately many circumstances. The urgent need for rapid action imbues large powerful actors with deep pockets with greater ability to wrest control of processes labelled energy transitions, while more inclusive, democratic, locally situated approaches cause barely an occasional flutter if measured in capital investments and gigawatt hours of clean energy production and fossil fuel displacement.
