  1. Title A world transformation to a Safe Operating Space The need for global scientificcollaboration Text Expert Meeting Science & Technology for SustainableDevelopmentGoals SDSN and UN-DESA New York 16th December 2013 Prof. Johan Rockström Stockholm Resilience Centre 1

  2. From stability and into the unknown – Holocene to the Anthropocene

  3. “Global sustainability has become a prerequisite for human development at all scales, from the local community to nations and the world economy. “

  4. Risks related to agreed global goal of 450 ppm Probability of Exceedance 1,6% 6 Average Global Temp rise at Equilibrium (C) Global Challenges Foundation

  5. The planetary safe operating space

  6. Planetary Stewardship: Transitions to Global Sustainability

  7. Six necessary & desirable Transformations An energy revolution – Facilitating a global energy transformation (>80 % reduction in CO2 emissions by 2050) Future food - a food system transformation to achieve +70% production by 2050 through Sustainable Intensification An urban planet - Achieving sustainable urban living The rising billion - Adapting to the population transition and preparing for a world of 9 billion people Protect, restore & sustain -A biodiversity Management Transformation Strengthen global governance - A private and public Governance transformation
