Next seminar: Samuel Bates, November 20, at 12:00 in room C108.

Samuel Bates will present the following paper:

Sustainable development and Viability: Conception for Managing the Vulnerability of Social-Ecological Systems


Conceptions of vulnerability and resilience are unified with the concept of viability to assess the current state of dynamic (Social Ecological) Systems in terms of sustainable development and hence to deduce a typology of regulation options. Mathematical viability theory serves as the basis for this conceptual structuring. Several scenarios of evolution and their prerequisites at the initial SES state are deduced from vulnerability metrics that quantify two key properties: the loss of viability constraint compliance and the loss of resilience capacity. Illustrations on FWI agrosystems are provided. Configurations and human actions that reconcile economic and environmental constraints of sustainability are distinguished from infeasible states of guaranteed sustainable development.
