This book looks at how to achieve a more secure level of global sustainability and gathers recommendations. It analyzes the relationship between globalization and sustainability, evaluating arguments on the necessity of fundamental changes in economic growth and discusses the radical evolutions in socioeconomic development in terms of social common capital, social discipline and economic valuation of the environment. The publication also examines strategies for achieving a sustainable society and presents an overview on adaptation for environmental change. Finally, it introduces policy recommendations for global sustainability, including those advocating a low-carbon society by 2050, a Green New Deal as a means of integrating policies, climate security, and international discipline.



Global sustainability

The twentieth century brought about enormous economic expansion and social changes in many nations: it was a century of growth and innovation. Technological and institutional innovation in one sector spurred innovation in other sectors, and also led to creation of new sectors. Moreover, expansion of trade across nations raised the productivity and competitiveness of many of the world’s economies. Particularly in Asia, which experienced widespread economic stagnation during the 1950s, rapid economic growth occurred in the latter part of the twentieth century as trade systems spread across countries such as Japan, South Korea and China, and throughout Southeast Asia. The so-called “flying geese” pattern of development was instrumental in creating what we think of as the Asian economic miracle. Presently, this region comprises one of the largest economies in the world.
