Designing resource systems for sustainability: safe-fail versus fail-safe strategies
Lunds universitet.
1992 (English)In: Society and the environment: a Swedish research perspective / [ed] Uno Svedin and Britt Hägerhäll Aniansson, Dordrecht: Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1992, 1, p. 23-45Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The complexity of natural systems opens up new risk perspectives for resource utilization, but also new opportunities. Efficient use of renewable resources, and of carbon-sequestering techno-ecology, can be combined into aggregates. These aggregates could be designed to contribute to safe-failing environmental futures. Tactical and strategical ecological engineering, however, invokes crucial questions of an intangible character. These include accounting for attitudes towards nature so as to render possible local-specific, culturally acceptable and ‘bottom-up’ tailor-made designs of multiple-use and flexible resource systems. Indicators of progress with respect to sustainable development will have to be formulated for use on the local, regional and global scale. Such indicators would benefit from adopting non-conventional perceptions, aimed at tracking resource-use efficiency, and at recognizing the stabilizing as well as destabilizing qualities of the complexity provided by ecological systems.
