Mapping Environmental Sustainability

Policy Press

In this chapter, the author addresses failures with interventions addressing complex issues of sustainability and the need, at all levels, for evaluation of interventions. He notes the lack of adoption of new ideas in this area and the way that stakeholders are often talking past each other. He considers how diagramming can address this by making space for conversations (between thinking and practice) in disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and transdisciplinary research practice. Drawing on the ideas introduced in Chapter Two the chapter explains the use of a particular systems-based influence diagram the author has developed and adapted over the past 15 years, and discusses diagramming as both a means of praxis (the braiding of thinking and practice) generally, and more specifically, as a means for evaluating environmental sustainability as praxis.
