According to an AGS report, industry, science, government and the social sector must come together to understand and implement the moral, economic and national-security solutions required for conserving and restoring critical ecosystems.

The American Geographical Society (AGS) released a White Paper, “A Geographical Framework for Sustainable Development,” which offers leaders in the public sector and private enterprise a geographically inspired long-term plan for confronting sustainability challenges facing the planet.

With critical ecosystems increasingly under threat, conserving and restoring these ecosystems is key to promoting a sustainable future for humankind.

“Whether one supports the Paris Agreement on climate change or not, and whether one believes change is linear or cyclical, we are faced with an existential threat to the human habitat as we know it today,” noted Joseph Wood, geographer and former provost, University of Baltimore, who also edited the White Paper. “Understanding what is happening to our habitat, and what we can do and should do about it, is essential to the future for my grandchildren and yours.”

A Framework for Sustainable Development starts from the fact that human habitats will continue to undergo great stresses and change in future decades as a result of natural processes and human use of the Earth. Click here to read the entire framework.
