MeJoReS pRáCtiCaS: Pago por servicios ambientales | Ursula Sola en Blogger | Agua | Scoop.it
En el libro La Civilización Chibcha de Miguel Triana[i] el altiplano cundiboyacense[ii] de los remotos tiempos del pueblo indígena se describe como cual isla cubierta de bosques, refugio de venados. La combinación de los ecosistemas de los Andes, Guayana y Delta del Orinoco genera hábitats de una gran biodiversidad acuática y terrestre y en la zona se registran más de de 17.000 especies de plantas, alrededor de 1.300 de aves, más de 1.000 especies de peces, 250 de mamíferos y 119 de reptiles.

El Departamento de Cundinamarca está geoestratégicamente ubicado con un territorio rico en agua y biodiversidad. Su sistema hidrográfico comprende dos grandes cuencas, al oeste, la del Río Magdalena, y al este la vertiente del Orinoco y del Río Meta.

Este artículo lo escribí con motivo de la incursión que se ha hecho en colombia sobre el tema del pago por los servicios ambientales y los beneficios que pordrían recibir los lugareños y propietarios de predios afectados por el sistema de protección de ecosistemas estratégicos.

Buena lectura !

Nature as Capital? Or Nature as Inspiration?

Nature as Capital?  Or Nature as Inspiration? | Agua | Scoop.it
We all too often in today’s prevailing business paradigm see the world around us through anthropocentric eyes. We view the world as a collection of things to be utilised for human consumption. Nature and the ‘ecosystem services’ that flow from nature are viewed in terms of the value they provide us. Often, within ‘sustainability programmes’ biodiversity is valued in terms of how it benefits the human stakeholder groups involved. This rather incomplete view of nature and life (encouraged through reductionist, mechanistic world views) rather overlooks the deeply important truth that life is an interconnected web of life; where ecosystems are systems of interconnected life with humans a strand within this diverse and rich fabric of life.

 

Good article on two differing views of "valuing" nature and the problem of "monetising" natural capital.

Clinging to economic growth suffocates the imagination

Clinging to economic growth suffocates the imagination | Agua | Scoop.it
Clinging to growth, however, suffocates the imagination needed to devise more convivial ways to share a finite planet. At the very least, and with so much evidence to the contrary, the burden of proof now lies heavily on those who reject the original message of the Limits report, for them to demonstrate how, and under what circumstances, we could possibly enjoy "growth forever" in a finite world. Kenneth Boulding, the founder of general systems theory, thought this to be a view held only by "madmen and economists".

 

Great article from New Economics Foundation's Andrew Simms. Explains why the left also has difficulties accepting that we have reached limits to growth.

"A Green Alternative to Austerity?"

"A Green Alternative to Austerity?" | Agua | Scoop.it
A big pile of green-growth reports demonstrates the plausibility of this path to recovery from an historic economic crisis. It is now up to us to realize its potential. Green growth offers a realistic alternative to the faltering austerity approach to overcoming the current economic crisis. Policymakers should incorporate this thinking into the “beyond austerity” narrative that is taking shape in a growing number of key EU member states.

 

Good Project Syndicate article by Dutch sustainability expert Roland Kupers on the value of several recent green growth reports and their link to the austerity versus growth debate in Europe.
