SRI Talks: Sustainability for Whom? | Future Earth

Global sustainability cannot be realized without achieving sustainability for the most vulnerable and underrepresented communities – many of them in low- and middle-income countries, as well as those increasingly left behind in high-income countries.

Yet the framing of sustainability, investment in innovation, and academic analysis has been dominated by processes that give relatively little regard to and participation from these communities, even when they are about them. This bias matters, because decisions on sustainability include important trade-offs, and processes that lack inclusivity and diversity miss many opportunities arising from the different social, cultural and demographic attributes.
