Call for Papers

The Journal of Industrial Ecology has a call for papers on the topic of "Greening Growing Giants". Quoting from the call:

"Questions relevant to this special issue include but are not limited to: What quantities of resources will be required globally in the near future, given the current dynamics of per capita resource use in developing countries? What role does the demand in industrial countries, and international trade, play in raising consumption levels in emerging economies? How much CO2 and/or pollutants will be produced through the resource use? What will be the technological potential for the reduction of resource demand and emissions? What are alternative development paths with low materials consumption and low emissions? What is the role of innovative practices at local level, especially in cities, in achieving alternative, more sustainable development pathways? What kind of policies, tools and practices are effective in achieving alternative development pathways?"

Deadline is 30 April 2011.
