– change the rules and incentives to advance sustainable practices; and 
– create feedback and make adjustments in the physical processes and structures of organizations to keep environmental pressures at acceptable levels;
Adaptive management and governance – governments and other entities need improved capacity to manage complex transition processes through continuous monitoring, learning and course correction to reduce the costs of not meeting the internationally agreed goals.


Delivering results requires a combination of technology investment, governance and management measures, together with sustainable consumption and production patterns.
