Humanity’s demand for opportunity- and resources- is rising sharply. It’s not just that there are more of us (7 billion!), but that we are altogether hungrier – for progress and products, protein and produce. And while many more of us are prospering, the demand is depleting our planet’s natural capital faster than it can replenish. From donor institutions to cabinet ministries to local communities, how do we pave a path to prosperity that sustains both human development and the natural resource base upon which it depends? Sustainable progress requires creative solutions at the nexus of people and planet.
