CEP: AIChE Journal Highlight - Solving Wicked Sustainability Problems Requires a New Approach

December
2014
Journal Highlight
The challenges facing the world today — including climate change, resource scarcity, food security, water access, and energy demand — are fundamentally different than those of the past. These sustainability issues can be thought of as “wicked” problems — a concept that originated in the 1970s to describe the difficult challenges facing urban planners at the time and that has now spread to other areas, including engineering. In contrast with so-called tame problems, which can be solved by traditional linear, analytical approaches, wicked problems are much more intractable and very difficult to solve.
