During a visit to Melbourne, Australia to lecture, Professor Robin Craig appeared on the University of Melbourne’s “Up Close” radio program. The segment was titled, “The end of sustainability: Realism and resilience in managing our natural resources.”
Environmental legal scholar Professor Robin Craig argues that the doctrine of sustainability in managing our natural resources fails to take into account an emerging age of ecological uncertainty. Instead, notions of sustainability and sustainable development need to make way for approaches based on resilience thinking, which attempts to factor in and adapt to coming large-scale social and ecological shifts brought about by climate change. Presented by Eric van Bemmel.
