EXPLAINER: capital, sustainable development and peace

Using up the world’s resources as we are doing will actually put us at risk of ending up with a lower standard of living. It could even drive conflicts. Insecurity and lack of the capability to produce the basics are likely to fan the flames of conflict and undermine peace in the world. We urgently need a new mindset – one that focusses on bringing security of the basics to everyone whilst preserving and indeed increasing the capability of society to provide. We need, among other things, a new mindset around what capital actually is and its role in the project of bringing peace.
