Workshop to introduce sustainability assessment on global change
Development cooperation increasingly faces highly complex issues of global change that must be tackled simultaneously at multiple levels, from the local to the global. At a workshop held in March 2012, specialists in research and development were invited to share research-based concepts, methodologies, and experiences that appear promising in addressing complex global change issues. Prof. Hans Hurni of the Centre for Development and Environment (CDE), University of Bern, led the workshop. The following concepts were presented and discussed:
Bern Sustainability Compass CDE Sustainable Development Appraisal (CDE-SDA) CSD Indicators of Sustainable Development, UN Comm. on Sustain. Dev. Green Growth, OECD Methods and Tools for Integrated Sustainability Assessment (MATISSE), EU Monitoring Sustainable Development (MONET)
