Europäisches Forum Alpbach in Zusammenarbeit mit IIASA – International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis
Wir sind heute im Bereich Entwicklung mit großen und komplexen Herausforderungen konfrontiert, die einen ganzheitlichen Zugang verlangen, durch den potentielle Synergien ausgeschöpft werden können, um parallel mehrere Vorteile zu erzielen. In dem Arbeitskreis werden konkrete Beispiele erfolgreicher und gescheiterter Projekte diskutiert, um aus diesen gemeinsam Lehren zu ziehen, die dann in verschiedenen Situationen umfassend angewandt werden können. Sind unsere Institutionen und Geschäftsmodelle wirklich geeignet, um der Komplexität und Größe dieser Herausforderungen gerecht zu werden? Was müssen wir ändern, damit sie für diese Aufgaben besser gerüstet sind?

Presentation outline

1- The difficult transition from a global discourse of development to national and local operational approaches

2- Major elements of development

3- The challenge to construct integrated approaches of development

4- Some alternatives in the current context of dynamic transitions and structural transformations
Greater China Director, The Climate Group, Beijing Abstract
After three decades of rapid economic growth, China today is at a critical juncture. Resources constraints, environmental challenges have not only started to hold back economic growth, but also caused serious social challenges, and in some cases, even challenging the politicalleaders' legitimacy to govern the country. An integrated approach becomes the key to steer the contra out of the dilemma. With a new generation of leaders in office starting this year, China is thinking hard of how to apply an integrated approach to design a governing system from the very top that would take not consideration of all the key elements in development. The nexus of China and the world becomes more critical than ever in a much more globalized world. China's rise, together with the rising of other large emerging economies presents the international community a challenge and also an opportunity to rethink about development, in particular how to adopt an integrated approach. What then will be criteria? What will be the rules? An integrated approach is absolutely essential. We seem to have relatively good understanding of the key elements. But how come we are not really applying it? What are the challenges? How do we together address those barriers?
