Linked with the Earth System Governance Project, this Elements series provides concise, authoritative studies of the governance of complex socio-ecological systems, written by world-leading scholars.

Highly interdisciplinary in scope, the series addresses governance processes and institutions at all levels of decision-making, on both a local and global scale. The planetary perspective seeks to align current institutions and governance systems with the global environmental challenges and earth system transformations occurring in the twenty-first Century.
