The scientific evidence is increasing that sufficiency is inevitable for achieving many sustainability goals. However, there exist many different understandings of sufficiency in the sufficiency discourse. Questions that are under debate are for example:
What does sufficiency change?
Whose task is it to implement sufficiency and thus shape sufficiency-oriented change?
What sustainability goals does sufficiency aim to achieve?
Following these questions, Jonas Lage has structured the sufficiency discourse in a systematic review of 133 publications and discussed the potentials, limits and synergies of the implicit notions of transformation with the help of transformation-theory.
