The Earth System Governance Project as a network organization: a critical assessment after ten years
Biermann, F. ; Betsill, Michele M. ; Burch, S. ; Dryzek, John ; Gordon, Christopher ; Gupta, A. ; Gupta, Joyeeta ; Inoue, Cristina ; Kalfagianni, Agni ; Kanie, Norichika ; Olsson, Lennart ; Persson, Åsa ; Schroeder, H. ; Scobie, Michelle - \ 2019

The social sciences have engaged since the late 1980s in international collaborative programmes to study questions of sustainability and global change. This article offers an in-depth analysis of the largest long-standing social-science network in this field: the Earth System Governance Project. Originating as a core project of the former International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change, the Earth System Governance Project has matured into a global, self-sustaining research network, with annual conferences, numerous taskforces, research centers, regional research fellow meetings, three book series, an open access flagship journal, and a lively presence in social media. The article critically reviews the experiences of the Earth System Governance network and its integration and interactions with other programmes over the last decade.

Global Goal Setting for Improving National Governance and Policy
Biermann, F. ; Stevens, C. ; Bernstein, S. ; Gupta, A. ; Kanie, N. ; Nilsson, M. ; Scobie, M. - \ 2017
In: Governing through Goals: Sustainable Development Goals as Governance Innovation / Kanie, Norichika, Biermann, Frank, Cambridge : MIT Press (Earth System Governance: A Core Research Project of the International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change ) - ISBN 9780262035620 - p. 75 - 98.
Can better governance, in itself, be a subject for global goal setting? This question stands at the center of this chapter, which focuses on the inclusion of “governance goals” in global goal-setting mechanisms, especially the Sustainable Development Goals agreed upon by the UN General Assembly in September 2015 as part of its 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (UNGA 2015). While our discussion is inspired by the negotiations around governance goals and targets within the context of Sustainable Development Goals, we seek to build a broader analytic approach that goes beyond the integration of governance in this specific context.
Cross-sectoral strategies in global sustainability governance: towards a nexus approach
Boas, I.J.C. ; Biermann, F. ; Kanie, N. - \ 2016

nexus - sustainable development - global governance - policy integration
The recent shift from the Millennium Development Goals to the much broader Sustainable Development Goals has given further impetus to the debate on the nexus between the multiple sectors of policy-making that the Goals are to cover. The key message in this debate is that different domains—for instance, water, energy and food—are interconnected and can thus not be effectively resolved unless they are addressed as being fully interrelated and interdependent. Yet while this overall narrative is forcefully supported in the new UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that are the main part of this agenda, many Goals still remain sectoral in their basic outlook. This now requires, we argue, a new focus in both policy and research on the nexus between different Sustainable Development Goals, especially with a view to reforms in the overall institutional setting that is required to sufficiently support such a nexus approach. This article thus examines the nexus approach in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals and identifies multiple avenues for its institutionalisation in global governance.

social-ecological systems - environmental governance - climate-change - information disclosure - adaptive governance - regime complex - world - decentralization - accountability - transparency
The current institutional framework for sustainable development is by far not strong enough to bring about the swift transformative progress that is needed. This article contends that incrementalism—the main approach since the 1972 Stockholm Conference—will not suffice to bring about societal change at the level and speed needed to mitigate and adapt to earth system transformation. Instead, the article argues that transformative structural change in global governance is needed, and that the 2012 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro must turn into a major stepping stone for a much stronger institutional framework for sustainable development. The article details core areas where urgent action is required. The article is based on an extensive social science assessment conducted by 32 members of the lead faculty, scientific steering committee, and other affiliates of the Earth System Governance Project. This Project is a ten-year research initiative under the auspices of the International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change (IHDP), which is sponsored by the International Council for Science (ICSU), the International Social Science Council (ISSC), and the United Nations University (UNU)

Science assessments indicate that human activities are moving several of Earth's sub-systems outside the range of natural variability typical for the previous 500,000 years (1, 2). Human societies must now change course and steer away from critical tipping points in the Earth system that might lead to rapid and irreversible change (3). This requires fundamental reorientation and restructuring of national and international institutions toward more effective Earth system governance and planetary stewardship
