Plenary Session

Keynote speaker prof. Karl Bruckmeier  will starts Plenary Session with paper: "The significance of economic knowledge in the environmental sustainability discourse" - building F - F4

The significance of economic knowledge in the environmental sustainability discourse

Abstract: The discourse on environmental sustainability gained significance in the past three decades in science and in the policy process, in many countries, indicating more and more problems with environmental pollution and limited availability of natural resources. Many local, regional, national and global activities and policy programmes were initiated to support sustainable development, but the success in terms of environmental improvements is limited so far, as the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment and further global assessments showed. For the future sustainability process a critical review of the practices of knowledge use is required. Economics is only one of many disciplines providing knowledge for the sustainability process, and it is not a paradigmatically unified science; different approaches compete in analysing and explaining environmental problems. Sustainable development depends on knowledge from the natural and social sciences and interdisciplinary syntheses. With interdisciplinary knowledge integration come up questions of knowledge selection: Which knowledge, from which disciplines should be applied and combined in the sustainability discourse and the governance processes? How to deal with incompatible or contradicting knowledge and information? Which social and cultural resources, beyond the natural and economic resources, are required for sustainble development in a given area or country and globally?These questions guide the search for possible improvements of the governance processes through inter- and transdisciplinary knowledge syntheses which are required because all dimensions of sustainability, economic, social and ecological, are connected to each other and functionally dependent on each other. Knowledge integration cannot be done in the policy and governance processes alone where power- and interest-related aspects dominate. With interdisciplinary research and knowledge integration failures of prior sustainability policies become visible: usually these are discussed as market, policy or community failures in the governance processes, whereas failures through inadequate knowledge practices are rather neglected. Main requirements to improve the knowledge practices in sustainability governance include epistemologically and methodologically refined approaches of interdisciplinary knowledge integration and learning from the inefficiency of prior sustainability policies.
