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. [...]

A socio-metabolic perspective on environmental justice and degrowth movements / Scheidel, Arnim (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Schaffartzik, Anke (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Degrowth and environmental justice movements share overarching aims of sustainability and justice and pursue them through radical social change and resistances. Both movements are diverse and comprised of groups that originate and operate in different contexts. [...]

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. [...]

Large-scale Irrigation Impacts Socio-cultural Values : An Example from Rural Navarre, Spain / Albizua, Amaia (Basque Centre for Climate Change) ; Pascual, Unai (Basque Centre for Climate Change) ; Corbera, Esteve (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Large-scale irrigation is a form of agricultural intensification aimed at increasing productivity and adapting to climate change. However, we know little about how large-scale irrigation affects socio-cultural values over nature's contributions to people (NCP) in agrarian systems. [...]

Payments for Environmental Services and Motivation Crowding : Towards a Conceptual Framework / Ezzine-de-Blas, Driss (Montpellier University) ; Corbera, Esteve (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. 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) ; Vélez, María Alejandra (Universidad de los Andes (Bogotà, Colòmbia). Facultad de Administración) ; Corbera, Esteve (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. 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 +).

Opinion clusters in academic and public debates on growth-vs-environment / Drews, Stefan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Savin, Ivan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Bergh, Jeroen C. J. M. van den (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
The debate about the relationship between economic growth and environmental sustainability involves many dimensions as well as much diversity in terminology. While it is often summarized in terms of dichotomous pro- and anti-growth positions, several studies indicate that additional views exist, and that these may differ between experts and the general public.

Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Over the last five decades the discursive debate on sustainability has reached prominence as the socio-ecological impacts of the human presence on Earth have grown rapidly. Nature discourses are interwoven with those of sustainability. [...]

Mapping and analyzing ecological distribution conflicts in Andean countries / Pérez Rincón, Mario Alejandro (Universidad del Valle (Cali, Colòmbia)) ; Vargas-Morales, Julieth (Universidad del Valle (Cali, Colòmbia)) ; Martínez Alier, Joan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
The extractive sector is increasingly important in the GDP and export basket of the four Andean countries under study (ACs) (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia). The analysis of an updated inventory of 296 environmental conflicts in the EJAtlas for these four countries reaches the following conclusions: extractivism causes environmental conflicts related to mining, fossil fuels, hydropower and biomass; indigenous, Afro-descendant and peasant communities are the most affected; behind the conflicts, there are not only environmental impacts but also social impacts that concern livelihoods, land deprivation and work insecurity, and also loss of cultural practices and cultural identity; most of the forms of collective action used in protests are peaceful, most notably petitions, street marches, media activism, lawsuits, while States and companies criminalize activists and are often violent (with about 75 cases in which there are deaths or disappearance of environmental defenders); socio-environmental movements (that sometimes include environmental NGOs) have achieved relative success, stopping 59 of the 296 conflict-generating projects and giving birth to new forms of resistance.
