The effective administration of territories is increasingly determined by social, economic, political, and ecological interconnections that transcend territorial boundaries. Global ecosystem change has effectively added a biophysical constraint to the political and economic conditions of development. The alteration of the material conditions for continued human development poses sharp questions about the viability of the traditional nation-state, raises the need for novel governance arrangements aligned with the cross-scale character of ecological challenges, and calls for a re- assessment of the basic paradigm of global development in the twenty-first century.
