Pakistan's Rural Poor on Path to Post-Carbon Prosperity

A revised and updated version of my piece published on this blog here as 'Between Climate Catastrophe and Civilisational Renewal' was published today on OurWorld 2.0, the interdisciplinary web magazine published by the United Nations University's Media Centre.



The piece offers a comprehensive but concise round-up of the latest scientific reports on climate change - with quite scary implications; along with exploration of how the rural poor in remote Pakistan are quietly pioneering truly sustainable socio-economic and political models of local grassroots empowerment that might well hold the potential to save us all.

I hope this is a fitting way to close the working day on 21.12.12.

And with that, have a thought-provoking Christmas and an inspiring New Year!
