The current mode of development degrades the Earth‘s finite capacity to sustain human well-being

People rely on nature for livelihoods, prosperity, health and well-being. This section lays out the many ways in which people depend on nature, including through the provision of resources, the cycling of materials and the regulation of environmental conditions, and the many non-material contributions that nature makes to a good quality of life. It assesses how current economic and financial systems fail to account for society‘s dependence on the environment. The section then explores the underlying social and economic dynamics driving the human activities that directly degrade the environment through appropriation of space, modification of life, production, extraction, consumption, pollution and waste disposal.
