Biodiversity loss: Transfer
The generic framework for assessing sustainability impacts can also be applied to biodiversity loss.
So far in this course, you have used the framework of sustainability assessment to evaluate what a promising and sustainable energy system might look like. But the question of how an energy system could develop sustainably is only one aspect of the desirable futures we are talking about here. The conservation of biodiversity is an equally important issue.
The generic framework can be adapted to the issue at hand. In this video, Patricia Holm applies it to describe strategies for minimising biodiversity loss. It turns out that the various dimensions of the system generally remain the same. However, we need to specify or adjust some aspects.
Patricia Holm uses the following two schemes in the video. Have a closer look at them here:
