ESRI Working Paper No. 162
The Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI), Dublin
The understanding of natural laws underlies the research programme so that we can 'obey nature' and thereby develop in a sustainable way - but let us not forget that human behaviour is part of nature's ways too. Human nature must also be understood. Socio-economic research, which looks into how people are motivated and interact with resources, is essential to help guide behaviour because it is the human activities that are environmentally unsustainable.
