Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
GIOAS co-organized with Para Limes on the webinar, Removing Barriers to Buy Time on 15th to 17th February 2021. Extensive discussions between the main participants led to the insight that a successful execution of action plans depends on the success with which five strongly interrelated stumbling blocks in the process are recognized and dealt with: finance, talent, vested interests, bureaucracy and political will.

Buying Time for Climate Action is the combined narrative of world-class experts, all committed to help humanity survive its largely self-induced destructive course. Changing that course requires urgent action. Determining which actions will lead to helpful change requires insights into the stumbling blocks that always emerge when actions aimed at change are planned, resulting in lost time. The experts who contributed to this volume, through their expertise, networks, wisdom and creativity, have largely concluded that the way to cope with the stumbling blocks is to avoid them by focusing on grassroots initiatives. Their narratives and discussions, presented in this book, highlight such thinking. The book is essential reading for anyone committed to help avoid an existential disaster for humanity, and ready to move plans into effective action.
