In this second tome, more than 100 authors from the IRD ecosystem – scientists, heads of department, diplomats, project leaders and representatives of civil society – continue the process of collective reflection launched in 2022. Structured around the “understand, co-construct, transform” triptych, these interweaving perspectives on knowledge, know-how and life skills combine to offer an interdisciplinary vision of sustainability science which transcends sectoral boundaries.
