Three female researchers at LUCSUS have secured funding from Formas for two research projects, one on myths and environmental policy in America, and one on pest management and environmental justice in Uganda. The projects will start in 2018 and run for three years.. Researcher Maja Essebo will lead on the first project, entitled: Alternative facts: a long-term analysis of the impact of myth on American environmental policy. The overall aim of the project is to conduct cumulative and long-term analysis of how and to what extent myth is used to legitimise and guide American environmental policy and practice, focusing specifically on climate change policies.. - It is now clear that fighting stories with facts does not work. With this project, Im hoping to bring the importance of taken-for-granted stories, or myths, to the forefront, showing how they legitimise and steer action in the form of environmental policy. We need to be better at understanding these stories. And possibly at telling them, ...

Rapid economic growth in China has been fueled by, and continues to stimulate, a huge demand for power, posing significant challenges to local, regional and international atmospheric environments. This timely book assesses this environmental risk and considers the efficient design of environmental policy in the development of new coal-fired plants in China. Coal-fired electricity generation currently accounts for about 80 per cent of Chinas power sector and so it is vital to establish how new plants can be designed to minimize the harmful environmental effects of this type of power generation. In designing pollution control policies in China there is a need to identify appropriate policies for a fast developing economy where incomes, attitudes and technology are also rapidly evolving. Therese Feng explores the use of societal values in developing environmental policies and presents an integrated assessment which carefully characterizes the nature and value of environmental damage using the model of

Are economists useful people? We are loved and we are modest but are we contributing to overall well being? This new paper raises my confidence in the role of "positivist" analysis. The authors provide a subtle statistical analysis of a key environmental policy issue. Do cleanups of toxic waste sites (Superfund) increase local property values? Until now, the conventional wisdom is that the answer is "no". Critics of environmental regulation have been quick to point out its costs. So, should we end the Superfund cleanup program? Measuring the benefits of environmental regulation remains a hard problem because attributes such as "clean air" or "a non-toxic neighborhood" are not market commodities. Techniques such as contingent valuation for valuing such non-market goods remain debated. Using several different data sets at different spatial resolutions, the authors of this Superfund paper conclude that land prices rise in the aftermath of toxic cleanups. As we try to build "Green Cities" in past ...

EPA is in the process of revising and updating its Guidelines and as such we are revisiting our approach to valuing mortality risk reductions. The literature has grown considerably since EPAs default estimate was derived and several EPA-funded reports have raised issues related to the robustness of estimates emerging from the mortality risk valuation literature. Furthermore, several meta-analyses have been conducted of this literature, providing new means of deriving central, default values for consideration. EPAs goal in bringing this issue to the SAB-EEAC is to seek expert opinion and guidance regarding the most appropriate way in which to proceed in updating the VSL estimate used to assess the mortality risk reductions from environmental policy. ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper investigates the relevant factors behind the almost unexplored realm of environmental innovation in services, using a dataset of 8161 Italian service firms. Specifically, we test whether manufacturing-services integration matters for environmental innovations. In addition, taking account for the heterogeneity of the service industries, we analyse whether environmental policies for manufacturing transmit induced innovation effects to services. Our findings show that: (i) the drivers of environmental innovations related to carbon abatement and energy efficiency differ across industries, and (ii) cooperation, training, environmental management systems and public funding play key roles in these processes. The integration of services and manufacturing through push and pull-effects, and the environmental policy transmission effect from manufacturing to services, generally do not seem to have a positive impact on the diffusion of environmental innovations.

The information EMEP provides to Governments relates to the deposition and concentration of air pollutants, as well as to the quantity and significance of the long-range transmission of air pollutants and fluxes across boundaries. Information on the relative importance of local and distant sources also guides national authorities in setting appropriate local and regional permissible emission levels, taking into account the international implications of these levels. In addition, information on the deposition and concentrations of air pollutants are a basis for abatement strategies in the regions affected. ...
Over the last thirty years, the European Union has created a system of environmental governance in Europe. With a large number of legislative measures, the EUs environmental policy is broad in scope, extensive in detail and often stringent in effect. Environmental governance also extends to the ways in which decision making on environmental policy has become institutionalized within Europe, both at the level of the EU itself and in the practices of the member states.

The EMEP Monitoring Strategy 2020-2029 was developed by the EMEP centers in close cooperation with the Parties through the Task Force on Measurements and Modelling. The Executive Body approved the document in December 2019 (Decision 2019/1). The monitoring strategy for 2020-2029 consolidates the established approaches and aspirations for monitoring activities in order to provide consistent and adequate observational data supporting the EMEP objectives. Furthermore, it introduces some minor changes to the specific requirements in order to meet the needs of EMEP for the coming decade. Fundamental objectives of EMEP monitoring are to ensure: (a) Adequate ongoing long-term monitoring of concentrations and deposition fluxes to assess exposure and impacts on health, ecosystems, vegetation, materials and climate; (b) Adequate spatial coverage in the geographical domain of EMEP and improved access to information from areas that have been insufficiently covered up to now; (c) Sufficient temporal ...
Does the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (Clean India Mission) have any solution to Indias problem of pollution? The primary focus seems to be on building isolated toilet complexes or units in rural areas. The government even advertises the effectiveness of the scheme on the number of toilets built. But most of these toilets are just single room units in villages, without plumbing or water supply. So people have resorted to using these toilets as homes and shops. Is there any other projects Swachh Bharat Mission is involved in ? What should be the focus of the cleanliness mission?. ...

As we enter a new administration and era of Barack Obamas governance, it is time we recognize and correct the problems with our current energy and environmental policies. What I wish to focus on however, is a little-known effect of our energy attitudes of the past, which had much less regard for not only the environmental impact, but also the human impact being wagered. What needs to be brought to light are the harmful health effects being caused by fossil fuel burning and chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) release. What will be clear then is not only are we threatening the future of our planet and sustainability of resources, but the human health condition has suffered because of our environmental policies.. The burning of fossil fuel and related emissions has long been suspected to threaten respiratory health. It should be no surprise then that asthma rates are markedly higher in known high-pollution areas such as Los Angeles and surrounding area. Skin cancer rates in places like South Africa and ...
What are the best ways for U.S. cities to combat climate change?

We granted certiorari to decide two questions of law. [1] As framed by petitioners, they are:. "1. Whether the National Environmental Policy Act requires federal agencies to include in each environmental impact statement: (a) a fully developed plan to mitigate environmental harm; and (b) a worst case analysis of potential environmental harm if relevant information concerning significant environmental effects is unavailable or too costly to obtain.. "2. Whether the Forest Service may issue a special use permit for recreational use of national forest land in the absence of a fully developed plan to mitigate environmental harm." Pet. for Cert. i.. Concluding that the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit misapplied the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), 83 Stat. 852, 42 U.S.C. § 4321 et seq., and gave inadequate deference to the Forest Services interpretation of its own regulations, we reverse and remand for further proceedings.. * The Forest Service is authorized by statute to ...
1.0 Introduction The question of a fair allocation is one with which we all grapple in many contexts. For those in decision-making positions such as policy-makers, teachers and parents, it involves the difficult task of weighing up competing claims. These claims may be presented on the basis of allowing for special needs, compensating for handicaps, rewarding additional effort or striving for equality. Economists are well aware that, as a society, we are not able to meet the unlimited wants of each individual. The fundamental issue of scarcity necessitates decisions about allocation. The questions of how resources are used as efficiently as possible to maximize the well-being of people and how the distribution of resources is made equitably are fundamental questions in economics. This book focuses on the latter question - that is, the equity or distributional aspect of economic analysis. The complexity of the notion of social justice confounds research into the equity principles and ...

The bitter debates and the collapse of the latest EU Summit on the 2014-2020 budget were indicative of the dire straits that Europe is going through.

The principle water difficulty today is not one of absolute scarcity, but rather of distribution (1) and resources. Access and deprivation underlie most water decisions. Hence linkages between water policy and ethics increasingly emerge throughout the world.. Respect for life and the dignity of the human person must be the ultimate guiding norm for all development policy, including environmental policy (2). While never overlooking the need to protect our eco-systems, it is the critical or basic needs of humanity that must be operative in an appropriate prioritisation of water access. Powerful international interests, public and private, must adapt their agendas to serve human needs rather than dominate them.. The human person must be the central point of convergence of all issues pertaining to development, the environment and water. The centrality of the human person must thus be foremost in any consideration of the issues of water. The first priority of every country and the international ...
Perhaps the most striking comment was one made by a US law professor, and seconded by a senior policy advocate from a clean energy think tank. The former suggested that the fourth generation of environmental regulation (the first three being "nuisance law" approaches, command-and-control regulation, market-based tools, in that order) is integrating environmental policy and planning functions with other governmental functions, such as finance, construction and transportation. The latter took the idea one step further, saying that China has every incentive to accelerate this so called "fourth generation" approach to "first generation"-the phenomenal growth of Chinas economy necessitates it.. China is the fastest growing economy in the world, and coupled with its absolute size, its global impact is nothing short of profound; I have already previously observed that China accounts for around half of the worlds construction activities. In terms of law and policy reform, China is trying to accomplish ...

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, and the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, as amended, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has prepared a Draft Joint Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and...
Center for Social Complexity Suite, 3rd Floor Research Hall. All are welcome to attend.. Abstract:. In a variety of computational models, structures arise, evolve, then disappear, perhaps replaced by other, comparable structures. For example, in some economic models firms form from the interactions of agents, operate for some period of time, and then exit. In housing models, households hold mortgages for finite periods of time before replacing them either due to refinancing or moving to a new house. In political (marketing) models the interests of parties (businesses) are aligned with certain segments of voters (consumers) for a period of time, until competition leads to realignment (brand switching). In environmental policy models specific polluting technologies have finite lifetimes and are eventually replaced by cleaner technologies. In disease models people are infected for varying lengths of time based on their health status, policies, etc. Traffic jams and conflicts have finite ...

Unfortunately, our public resource management agencies are not very interested in the impacts of their actions on human beings, even though the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires agencies to evaluate the environmental and related social and economic effects of their proposed actions.. The agencies are good at spinning NEPA requirements. So sure, they evaluate (more or less), but thats about it. Somehow evaluation never pans out into modifying their actions so as to minimize negative impact on humans or the environment itself. Resource management agencies decide in advance what theyre going to do, and compliance with NEPA is just a burden. Thus theres a lot of paperwork but little positive and lasting effect from agency actions. What are the results of the actions supposed to be? Healthy forests, not burnt stumps, for starters. Clean air, too.. When I have contacted USFS and asked how much smoke particulate and CO2 a specific fire is dumping into the air the most common response ...

Open full size. Protected areas. The Baikal basin is a unique region with a high biotic and landscape diversity. Specially protected areas ensure the protection of the ecosystems of the basin.. The importance of the principle of territorial nature protection is shown by the history of creation of protected natural territories (PNT). The first protected area in the Baikal basin - near the Bogd mountain range - was created in 1778, which is documented in the Mongolian written sources. Barguzinsky Reserve, founded in 1916, became the first of the currently operating Russian state reserves. The international significance of PNTs in the Baikal basin is underlined by the inscription of Lake Baikal on the UNESCO World Heritage list, as well as by the inclusion of four PNTs of the basin into the network of natural biosphere reserves run by the UNESCO program "Man and Biosphere" (MAB). In the recent years, determining factors of environmental policy included the implementation of the concept of ...
In a 1993 business report, I found out a bunch of cool stuff about the company. It started including wildlife picture cards in boxes of Baking Soda in 1888 to raise awareness about endangered species. How cool! In 1908 Church & Dwight began using recycled paper in their boxes! Who knew anyone recycled back then? In 1990 they hired an executive to define their environmental policy - something other companies swiftly copied to get in onboard the trend train. Apparently, C&D focuses on beginning of the pipe pollution prevention, rather than end of the pipe pollution clean-up, which is music to my ears. However, the rest of the business report reads more like a PR document than a concrete explanation of how the company functions in a green way. This makes sense. Green means money, after all. C&D donates quite a bit of cash to environmental education and stewardship. They also focus the report on how Sodium Bicarbonate could be used by other businesses to lessen their environmental impact since ...
Below is the text of the speech made by Theresa May, the Prime Minister, at the London Wetland Centre in Barnes on 11 January 2018.. It is wonderful to be here at the Wetland Centre - a true oasis in the heart of London.. In our election manifesto last year we made an important pledge: to make ours the first generation to leave the natural environment in a better state than we found it.. As we leave the European Union, which for decades has controlled some of the most important levers of environmental policy, now is the right time to put the question of how we protect and enhance our natural environment centre-stage.. And it is a central priority for this government.. Our mission is to build a Britain where the next generation can enjoy a better life than the one that went before it.. That means tackling the deficit and dealing with our debts, so they are not a burden for our children and grandchildren.. It means building the houses that people need, so that the dream of home ownership can be a ...

Theodore Roosevelt warned a century ago of the subversive influence of money in politics. He said the central fact in his time was that big business had become so dominant it would chew up democracy and spit it out. The power of corporations, he said, had to be balanced with the interest of the general public. That warning was echoed by his cousin Franklin, who said a "government by organized money is as much to be feared as a government by organized mob." Both Roosevelts rose to that challenge in their day. But 100 years later mighty corporations are once again the undisputed overlords of government. Follow the money and you are inside the inner sanctum of the Business Roundtable, the National Association of Manufacturers, and the American Petroleum Institute. Here is the super board of directors for Bush, Incorporated. They own the administration lock, stock and barrel, and their grip on our governments environmental policies is leading to calamitous consequences. Once the leader in ...

Transgenic renewables at the ABIC 2004 Genetically improved trees of major relevance for the environment and the economy As a result of rising oil prices and the depletion of fossile raw material reserves, political discussions are centring increasingly around plants as sources of chemical elements, raw materials and fuels. As early as 1997 the EU Commission emphasised the importance of renewable raw materials for European energy and environmental policies. This was underlined in a memorandum dated 21 June 2004 from Federal Minister Renate Künast at the Agricultural Council. The purpose of this memorandum, said Ms Künast, was "to promote renewables in their role as fuels for the future and as an economic factor in rural areas". If agricultural crop plants are to be used to best effect as renewable raw materials, an important role will be played by gene technology. With the aid of gene technology it will be possible to modify the substances contained in conventional crop plants to make them ...
Thus, the Brazilian environmental activist was noted by the CIA and some smiling guys established contact with her. It was not an occasion that in 1985 she joined the Workers Party (PT - Partido dos Trabalhadores) that opened new prospects for her political rise. In 1994 Marina Silva was elected to the federal Senate with the reputation of ardent environment protection activist. Thats when the information on her ties with the CIA started to go around. In 1996 she received the Goldman Environmental Prize. She has got other prestigious decorations for environment protection as well. CIA curators did their best to raise her rating. For five years she served as a member of cabinet under Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva changing her party allegiance. In 2009 Silva announced her switch from the Workers Party to the Green Party primarily in protest against the environmental policies endorsed by the PT. Ms. Silva really shook up Brazilian politics by announcing her intention after nearly three decades. She ...

Change is in the air. After a century of growing national control, Americans are rethinking the role of the federal government vis-à-vis the states. This reconsideration has led to welfare reform and to a nationwide debate over education. Now it is beginning to focus on environmental policy, too.
