Manifesto Roundtable - Kathmandu, Nepal

  1. 1. Innovation, Sustainability, Development: A New Manifesto Dr. Adrian Ely University of Sussex, UK Presentation at IAPS, May 6th 2009
  2. 2. History: The Sussex Manifesto - Written by the Sussex Group: Hans Singer (chair), Geoff Oldham, Charles Cooper, R.C. Desai, Christopher Freeman, Oscar Gish and Stephen Hill - Commissioned by the UN but in the end too radical for them - Set targets for developed and developing countries, and highlighted the need for system change
  3. 3. A “3D” Agenda for a new manifesto Directionality – of pathways towards specific Sustainability objectives. Distribution – more equitable distribution of benefits, costs and risks associated with innovation. Diversity – in socio-technical systems, in order to build robust and resilient systems, mitigate lock-in and cater for seemingly irreconcilable perspectives on value and sustainability.
  4. 4. How does this roundtable contribute to the project? • This is the first of several roundtables we hope to hold with partners around the world. • We want to hear perspectives from Nepal/ Asia-Pacific. Please draw upon your own experience and speciality areas. • We will be collecting your names and will use the photos and audio recordings on our website. Anyone who wants to remain anonymous or does not want to be featured should tell the organisers now.
  5. 5. Order of the session Question 1 – where do we want to go? Questions 2 onwards – how can innovation help us to get there? • We have provided questions for discussion to guide you, but please feel free to raise issues that you see as most important. • We look forward to your feedback
