    Description: This article studies the role of technology drivers in catching up at different stages of development. Countries can be at different stages of development when entering in a new catching-up cycle. Thus, the technological drivers of growth [technological capabilities, external spillovers, technological specialization and stability of policies in science and technology] can play different roles to accelerate the rate of growth and change their relative position in the leadership rank (win or lose the run). The empirical results show the building of a 'racing pattern' as countries climb up development stages. At earlier stages, infrastructures and qualification play a major role, while at upper stages, the maintenance of leadership depends on accumlating techno-scientific capabilities to innovate. The article also finds that R&D is crucial at any stage of development, as well as the stability of technology policies.

    Description: The development model proposed for the economies of the world is based on a vision that includes economic growth. This idea is supported by the use of natural resources to provide the raw materials required for the system. However, from the concern for the consequences in the environment -by inadequate extractive practices, little or not controlled- government actions have had to regulate economic activities. However, public policies related to the environment have not been so forceful, to the point that when an environmental policy is faced with an energy, the latter prevails over the other. The vision of development has evolved from the hand of many authors who suggest a fundamental change in the conception of it. Despite this, the predominant economic system continues to hold on to the classic idea of the extraction of natural resources. Colombia is a sample of it. Its environmental regulatory framework is broad and contains important instruments for environmental regulation, has a national biodiversity policy, as well as a system of protected areas, has incentives for corporate environmental responsibility and promotes sustainable development and energy efficiency in companies. Despite this, the country's economic model continues to base its production system on the exportation of raw materials, agricultural products and the extraction of hydrocarbons, precious stones and minerals. It should be noted that in Latin American legislation mechanisms are established so that activities, for example extractive activities, comply with environmental protection requirements, however these are not fully met. What is missing from environmental policies to guarantee environmental governance that is linked to energy governance? Based on this response, the elements that are required to identify the type of development we want as a society in the integration process as UNASUR can emerge. Therefore, this analysis is carried out, using the symbolic cartography of Boaventura De Soussa Santos, on three maps that will later overlap. The first corresponds to establish the differences between the environmental and the energetic in a chronological way for the understanding of their incompatibility. In the next one, governance is studied as a way that, by its constitution, may facilitate the articulation between the environmental and the energetic, since it includes several actors in decision-making. The interaction between the different actors requires a clarification between what is involved in sustainability and sustainable development, a topic addressed in the third moment. The result of the overlap is the need to reconstruct the concept of sustainable development, because the differences between the approaches and the amplitude of it makes that between the environmental and the energetic deepen the incompatibility, instead of minimizing it.

    Description: Throughout history, when looking at the evolution of the social and economic environment, the sustainability of certain economic policy measures has been questioned; policies that are more criticized even in times of crisis. In response, the sustainable development goals of the United Nations (United Nations, 2015) involve both the revision of traditional development models and also a different strategy regarding the implementation of economic policies. The purpose of this paper is to explore to what extent the economic policies of the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean have been oriented to promote sustainable development. This analysis will allow to have a framework of reference, which will let know to what extent a sustainable economic policy is possible in these countries

    Description: Despite the growing awareness that wetlands are extremely valuable ecosystems, they continue to degrade (Seo / Birdlife, 2018). Some authors (Pearce and Turner, 1995; De Groot et al., 2007; Barbier et al., 1997) agree about this is because they are not being managed in an optimal way because the full value of wetlands has not been taken into account, as well as the costs and benefits of their possible uses when economic development decisions have been taken in the planning carried out. This paper identifies and analyzes the different ecosystem services provided by wetlands, including tourism. In addition, a tourism management proposal is presented to limit negative impacts and to promote a balanced use of tourist and recreational activities in wetlands, as well as generate information that can contribute to understand both the economic benefits of wetland conservation and the economic impact and cost of degradation and destruction.

    Description: The maximization of profit as the main objective of companies is being criticized from different forums, advocating for an economic system in which the achievement of social sustainability will play a leading role. In the banking sector, after the outbreak of the crisis in 2008, financial bailouts that have used public funds to save various entities have provoked a current of opinion about the necessary social role that banking companies must develop. In this article, a case study is carried out analyzing the role of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in ABANCA, the financial institution with the largest presence in Galicia (northwest Spain), which has been rescued with public money, Identifying a series of objectives and actions carried out by said entity. The analyzes carried out show, among others, the importance of trust and transparency, as well as attention to intangibles.

    Description: The Protocol for Socially Responsible Territory is the result of a local sustainability management experience, which has demonstrated the importance of public administration in social innovation. This article describes the process through which such protocol was obtained, its characteristics and its principles as well as the strengths that this protocol offers. The definition of Socially Responsible Territory (TSR) is presented as a contribution to the theoretical development of a new research area, whose prospects are favored by the potential practical effects on public and corporate alliances locally. This protocol offers competitive advantages to governments who are preparing to seize the opportunities from the Europe 2020 Strategy for Growth.
