Sustainability and Global Grand Challenges by Jeffrey Sachs
Static Preview

Jeffrey Sachs presents the key note presentation on sustainability, most particularly sustainable development (environmental and economic) for the first Global Grand Challenges Summit 2013 in London.  The lectures is on how sustainable development must occur and how countries are not doing enough to meet this in either terms of energy and the economy. Published on Mar 30, 2013

In an October 15th 2013 article in the Financial Times in response to the climate catastrophe of Typhoon Haiyan, he notes "People need to see credible energy plans, pathways for each country and region to a prosperous low-carbon future. Such pathways can be found, but aside from excellent work in a handful of places, such as the UK, Denmark and California, such long-term planning has not been done...The basic elements of a pathway include four key pillars: more electricity from low-carbon technologies rather than coal; replacing fossil fuels with electricity as the fuel source for sectors such as cars and household heating; greater energy efficiency in industry and the home; and the end of deforestation (which emits carbon).
