Statement of Purpose
The SSG is closely following the evolution of the global Covid-19 pandemic. We will identify important reports on understanding and coping with this dangerous virus, as well as plans for less-restricted post-Covid-19 futures. Our focus will be on economic and social impacts, especially concerning health security and the Sustainable Development Goals.
The Security and Sustainability Guide seeks to identify and briefly describe international organizations, and nation-oriented organizations of possible international interest, that are focused on the two basic human goals of Security and Sustainability–both broadly defined.
Security Organizations are concerned with human security, human rights, peacekeeping, conflict prevention, terrorism, nuclear issues, weapons, cyber-security, military organizations, etc. Sustainability Organizations focus on climate change mitigation and adaptation, sustainable development, food security, water security, energy security, economic security, oceans, biodiversity, human population, green business and economics, etc.
There are thousands of guides to countries and cities, as well as flora and fauna. It is time for some guide to the rapidly growing number of security and sustainability organizations. But this is no easy matter, because human organizations are in flux, intertwined, and more difficult to classify.
Please excuse errors and inconsistencies; the S&S Guide is a continuing work-in-progress.
Access to these hundreds of organizations is provided here in several ways:
- A dashboard of 6 generic categories and 20 sub-categories on the Generic Categories Dashboard
- An alphabetized Major Categories Index of 60 categories with 5 or more listings.
- An alphabetized index of 600+ descriptors preceding the Part 4 Subject Index.
- An index to 100+ Information Portals for additional information on security or sustainability.
- An A-Z Title Index of 1,700+ organizations in Part 2.
- A KEYWORDS search box.
THREE IMPORTANT MESSAGES:
In addition to providing information on like-minded organizations and the wide range of organizations associated with security and sustainability, the S&S Guide has three key findings:
The remarkable growth of Security and Sustainability organizations (see Chart) , with a median start-up date of 2002, is greatly under-appreciated by media and researchers; this is especially true for organizations supporting green business as a new type of capitalism.View Businesses»
Alliances, Coalitions & Networks
Formation of alliances, coalitions, consortia, and networks to overcome fragmented efforts is important; the Guide identifies nearly a hundred such groups, and more are probably desirable.View Networks »
Security + Sustainability
A small but growing group of organizations is linking both security and sustainability concerns realizing that we cannot have security without sustainability and vice versa.Why Security & Sustainability? »
