Weak Sustainability Trends in the Andean and Nordic Countries: A Historical Perspective

Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapport/Conference proceedingKapitel samlingsverkPeer review


This chapter traces the main sustainability trends of the five countries analyzed in this book. The starting point is to understand sustainability as main measure of development, diminishing the role of GDP or Income. In order to address these concerns the chapter utilizes mainstream indicators such as Natural
Resources Intensity and energy consumption, and adding new comprehensive measures of development, namely Genuine Savings and Natural capital as in Blum et al. (National wealth what is missing, why it matters. Oxford University Press, 2017). The first part of the chapter presents a brief debate on what means
sustainability in historical perspective and how it’s related with the divergent paths between Andean and Nordic countries. The second part has a quantitative account on Natural resources (as share on GNI) and a comparison between the available long run estimations of GS for Chile and Sweden. This synopsis shows
the main gap between both regions in their approaches to sustainability in the long run.
