Introducing 'The Doughnut' of social and planetary boundaries for development


Kate Raworth, Senior Researcher at Oxfam Great Britain introduces her discussion paper "A Safe and Just Space for Humanity: can we live within the doughnut?" Join the debate at www.oxfamblogs.org/doughnut

This discussion paper is an exploration of what such a model of prosperity might look like.

It presents a visual framework -- shaped like a doughnut -- which brings the concept of planetary boundaries together with the complementary concept of social boundaries, creating a safe and just space between the two, in which humanity can thrive.
