10 p, 302.1 KB Not so natural an alliance? Degrowth and environmental justice movements in the global South / Rodríguez-Labajos, Beatriz (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

10 p, 2.8 MB India's biophysical economy, 1961-2008. Sustainability in a national and global context / Singh, Simron Jit (Institute of Social Ecology Vienna) ; Krausmann, Fridolin (Institute of Social Ecology Vienna) ; Gingrich, Simone (Institute of Social Ecology Vienna) ; Haberl, Helmut (Institute of Social Ecology Vienna) ; Erb, Karl-Heinz (Institute of Social Ecology Vienna) ; Lanz, Peter (Institute of Social Ecology Vienna) ; Martínez Alier, Joan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Temper, Leah (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
India's economic growth in the last decade has raised several concerns in terms of its present and future resource demands for materials and energy. While per capita resource consumption is still extremely modest but on the rise, its sheer population qualifies India as a fast growing giant with material and energy throughput that is growing rapidly .

14 p, 2.5 MB On the circular bioeconomy and decoupling : implications for sustainable growth / Giampietro, Mario (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
This paper explores the existing confusion around the conceptual definitions and interpretations of the term circular bioeconomy. The co-existence of diametrically opposite interpretations of the concept indicates lack of a serious discussion of its theoretical foundations. [...]

Will PES Schemes Survive in the Long-term Without Evidence of Their Effectiveness? Exploring Four Water-related Cases in Colombia / Lima, Letícia Santos de (Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais) ; Ramos Barón, Pablo Andrés (Pontificia Universidad Javeriana) ; Villamayor Tomás, Sergio (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Krueger, Tobias (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin)
This paper explores the reasons why payers, intermediaries, and providers engage in PES even under uncertainty about outcomes, and how they relate to the long term durability of the scheme. In theory, it is expected that, in face of high uncertainty, payers would leave the projects if effectiveness cannot be demonstrated and providers would not keep their conservation practices if no money remains available.

Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Georgescu-Roegen used the term bioeconomy to refer to a radical ecological perspective on economics he developed in the 1970s and 1980s. In recent years, it has also become a buzzword used by public institutions to announce and describe a supposed current economic and ecological transition. [...]

Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Lapeyre, Renaud (Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations)
Research on Payments for Environmental Services has only recently started to pay attention to motivation "crowding", i. e. the effect that such rewards might have on either strengthening (crowding-in) or weakening (crowding-out) participants' intrinsic motivations to protect and sustainably manage natural ecosystems.

Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Globally, there is an increasing level of funding targeted to pay farmers and rural communities for the provision of ecosystem services, for example through Payments for Ecosystem or Environmental Services (PES) schemes and pilots for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation, and maintaining or enhancing forest carbon stocks (REDD +).
