When South Africa adopted the Green Economy Accord it joined many other countries that were adopting policies to support sustainable socioeconomic development through green economy investments. However, the South African economy remains reliant on the depletion of natural resources which places great strain on the environment. The authors of this book argue that substantial greening of the economy is essential for a transition to a sustainable society. This book argues for a review of South Africa’s existing economic growth model. It assesses the challenges to and possibilities for a transition to a sustainable future.

Book Description University of Cape Town Press, South Africa, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The depletion of South Africa's (and in some cases the world's) natural resources and the degradation of environmental sinks (including the atmosphere, lakes and rivers, and land) are continuing at such a rate that natural resource prices are climbing and many critical ecosystem services that underpin human welfare are increasingly threatened.The concept of the `green economy' has gained increasing traction in South African policy discourses over the past few years. However, in much of this discourse it is viewed in a piecemeal way as one part or sector of the economy (e.g. an industrial sector dealing with manufacture and installation of renewable energy technologies and energy-efficient equipment and appliances). In the view of the authors, `greening the South African economy' requires an application of sustainability principles and practices across the full range of primary, secondary and tertiary sectors of the economy in an integrated manner. The aim of this book is therefore to apply principles of sustainability and `green economics' to the entire South African socio-economic system and its major elements in an integrated and comprehensive manner.Recommended for: Economists, academics, students and policy-makers with an interest in sustainable development and green futures in South Africa and similar developing countries.
