Our current era can be described as the beginning of a new, historical phase of the ‘Anthropocene’age, where humans are becoming increasingly conscious of the effects of their actions on nature,culture, and human relationships. As the first section shows, this realisation is acquiring greater significance in current development discourse and policymaking, particularly in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The fate of the human species rests on a sustainable collaboration with nature, as is apparent by the impact of climate change on food, energy, and water.
