A comprehensive set of five levers (95) forthis transformative change emerged from ourunprecedentedly broad and rigorous analysisof the many possible levers that have beenproposed previously: (i) developing incentivesand widespread capacity for environmentalresponsibility and eliminating perverse incen-tives; (ii) reforming sectoral and segmenteddecision-making to promote integration acrosssectors and jurisdictions; (iii) taking preemptiveand precautionary actions in regulatory andmanagement institutions and businesses toavoid, mitigate, and remedy the deteriorationof nature, and monitoring their outcomes;(iv) managing for resilient social and ecologicalsystems in the face of uncertainty and com-plexity to deliver decisions that are robust in awide range of scenarios; and (v) strengthen-ing environmental laws and policies and theirimplementation, and the rule of law moregenerally.
Five levers for transformative change emerged from this research: 1. Incentives and capacity for environmental responsibility / disincentifying perverse incentives (ie. fossil fuel industry) 2. integrated decision-making across silos 3. pre-emptive action in regulatory, business and management institutions to monitor and mitigate environmental destruction 4. implement resiliency in human and natural systems 5. strengthen environmental law
