D33 - Convergence E-Book
As part of the CONVERGE project's research, we've sought out inspirational examples of initiatives from all fields of life – including policy, business, research and community initiatives, etc. – in different parts of the world that address the imperatives of both living within the limits of the planet (contraction) and sharing its resources equitably (convergence).
We present the following e-book as a summary of the research carried out. It provides information on the methodology used, introduces 28 case studies (initiatives) studied in detail from different countries and fields, as well as analysis and evaluation of these.
In the e-book the Convergence Mapping Tool is also introduced, which helps show how various types of initiatives and organizations manage to address this double challenge of living more equitably within limits as well as provides an indication of how they could develop further towards more Convergence.
The e-book can be downloaded here.
The background paper to the e-book is available here.
