Title: ‘Economia verde’ e desenvolvimento territorial sustentável: opções estratégicas para portugal
Author: Oliveira, Nuno Gaspar; Jerónimo, Winston
Abstract: The concept of 'Green Economy' rises from the human challenge of creating a fairer, balanced and sustainable improvement of human welfare and social equality, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcity. So, what is 'Green Economy'? And will it require major social and political changes? Do we have the necessary tools to promote, monitor, assess a ‘Green Economy’? What are the risks regarding social and economic costs generated by recurring patterns of overuse of natural resources and the deregulation of ecosystem services? Can we make systematic transition, using ecological economics and technological adaptation? Portugal is a country with historically great potential in agriculture, forestry, marine and tourism, will it be ready to accept and foster the innovation necessary for a 'Green Economy' transition? Is it possible to monitor the transition of the economic and territorial planning instruments at the political and strategic level? Will the current national strategic plans for sustainable development (ESDS), nature conservation and biodiversity (ENCNB) and planning (PNPOT), along with other strategic plans, development plans, action plans and many other plans, strategies and instruments follow and foster the change? The aim of this paper is to explore a conceptual basis for monitoring the development of the theme of 'Green Economy' and its importance regarding the mechanisms and instruments of policy and planning, starting from an initial exploratory analysis of the intersection of the main instruments of development (ideally, sustainable) which is based on the national management of natural capital and examine how they can meet the challenges of 'Green Economy'.
