Scaling Up Solutions for Sustainability: The Example of Tropical Deforestation - Joint IIASA and Austrian Academy of Sciences LectureIIASA Distinguished Visiting Fellow Eric Lambin, Stanford University and University of Louvain, will speak at a hybrid public lecture offered by IIASA and the Austrian Academy of Sciences. Drawing on his career long work, Lambin will identify pathways to successful sustainable transitions through the example of tropical deforestation. Humanity is on a dangerous trajectory. A sustainability transition leveraging the efforts of private companies, governments, and civil society actors is required. Many solutions for a sustainability transition are already known, adopted, and tested by some pioneer actors, or are in advanced stages of development. But only a small fraction of market players have voluntarily adopted sustainability solutions. The upscaling of these successful solutions is therefore a key challenge. Using the case of tropical deforestation, Eric Lambin identifies pathways to achieve sustainability transitions at scale.
