Resources for the Future (RFF) Experts on the U.S. EPA’s Clean Power Plan

Resources for the Future Experts on EPA’s Clean Power Plan
Yesterday the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its final Clean Power Plan, issuing the nation’s first carbon emissions limits on existing power plants—-the largest source of emissions in the US economy. In a new blog series, Resources for the Future (RFF) experts highlighted what to look for in the final regulation and in the companion rule for new power plants.

Yesterday afternoon RFF’s Nathan Richardson released a summary of those issues and compared them to the final Clean Power Plan:

10 Things We Looked for in the Clean Power Plan—-and What We Found

“In general, the EPA has stuck to its guns. The agency has not generally reduced the Clean Power Plan’s ambition, and in fact has called it stronger than the proposed plan. It is possible that the agency’s decision to drop demand-side energy efficiency from its target calculations was motivated by legal concerns, but its decision to keep new renewable generation in those calculations will still be challenged.”

Read the Blog Series

1.      Timing: An Easy Concession for EPA?

2.      Inside the Fence: Keep an Eye on Cofiring under the Clean Power Plan

3.      What Will EPA Do If States Won’t Play Ball?

CFP: Global environmental change in the Himalayas: Controversies, Impacts, Futures

International conference: Global environmental change in the Himalayas: Controversies, Impacts, Futures

6-8 November 2015, New Delhi, India

A prediction by the IPCC that glaciers would disappear from the Himalayas by 2035 produced considerable public concern, followed by controversy over its accuracy and finally it was shown to be erroneous. This perceived crisis followed in the line of several previous narratives such as “Himalayan environmental degradation”. On the one hand, such controversies point to the importance of the Himalayan region in the context of Global environmental change; but they also show how these controversies are exacerbated by insufficient understanding of the Himalayas. To develop such an understanding we require scientific collaboration, research methods that complement each other and an explicit integration of the human dimension in any discussion of environmental change in the South Asian mountain belt. Further, it is important to identify ongoing and potential impacts of these changes in terms of human-environmental interactions, natural hazards, non-equilibrium ecology and socio hydrology. Building on an identification of potential impacts, it is important to examine future scenarios that include a discussion of response pathways and possible adaptation strategies. The conference will start with a unique exhibition on “repeat terrestrial photography” that identifies changes of glaciers, vegetation, land use and urban development in the Himalayas. This conference aims to bring together scholars, researchers and practitioners from diverse disciplines to share their findings and to intensively exchange on the multifaceted topic. It will offer an opportunity for establishing sustainable research networks, joint publications and collective fieldwork.

We invite presentations related to themes such as, but not limited to:
Historical records of climate change, remote sensing of environmental change, direct and indirect impacts of climate change, human development in the Himalayas, socio-hydrology and changes in the cryosphere.

Please submit abstracts of 200 words by 31st August 2015 through our online platform at

https://econsort.ugent.be/regis.asp?frm=1573

The conference is being organised by Heidelberg University with financial support from the German House for Research and Innovation – DWIH, New Delhi.

[Beyond 2015:451] New Study on complexity of SDGs – Tobacco: Antisocial, Unfair, Harmful to the Environment

New Study

Tobacco: Antisocial, Unfair, Harmful to the Environment

Tobacco Production and Consumption as an Example of the Complexity of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The year 2015 is decisive for sustainable development. Based on intergovernmental negotiations, a list of goals will be formulated showing barriers to sustainable development and setting goals for its implementation. These Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) resume and supplement the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) expiring in 2015. The main focus of the MDGs was combating and eradicating hunger and poverty. This has to remain the central concern of the global community.

However, other global issues such as growing social inequality, increasing environmental devastation and resource use, intensifying climate change and lack of implementation of justice, peace, good governance and human rights must be addressed by all states in the future. Therefore, the SDGs have to focus on both the challenges in the areas of environment and development in the years to come. At the end of the negotiation process, the so-called Post-2015 Agenda will be adopted at an UN Summit in September 2015. It is central for the implementation of the Post-2015 Agenda, that the goals apply both to the countries of the Global North as well as to those of the Global South.  Thus, donor nations will have an obligation to reorganize their domestic policies as well as their development assistance while at the same time closely interlink these matters with regard to sustainable development.

If all the goals for sustainable development proposed in the Synthesis Report and in the OWG document are actually implemented, this will have far-reaching effects on all areas of life, behaviour and politics in the Global North as well as in the South. The multisectoral approach

is even a major challenge for non-governmental organisations (NGOs). In an attempt to illustrate this, the study uses the example of tobacco. It is structured on the basis of the six key elements of the UN Secretary-General’s Synthesis Report (dignity, people, prosperity, planet, justice and partnership) and analyses the chain of production and consumption of tobacco. In order to show to what extent

and degree of complexity tobacco opposes the SDGs and to what extent it obstructs or even counters them, the study frequently denominates the corresponding OWG goals. It suggests specific approaches to promote sustainable development. Finally, the study presents key conclusions combined with demands to the stakeholders in the post-2015 negotiation process.

Please find attached this new study of Bread for the Word, unfairtobacco.org and the German Forum on Environment and Development.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Best,

Highlights: 2015WEEC (World Environmental Education Congress) – Mark Your Calendar WEEC2017 Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Dear UN SD Education Caucus Community,
 
The WEEC 2015, World Environmental Education Congress, was hosted in Gothenburg, Sweden, June 29-July 2, to learn more  visit Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/WEEC-2015/1484357418492492?fref=nf  The following are a few highlights from this Congress.  We met, we talked, we shared stories, we laughed, we shared meals with new and old colleagues & friends, we debated new concepts and ideas, and of course conversations about our challenges and key issues – potential solutions.   A huge thank you to the conference organizers and program chair, the many volunteers who worked tirelessly to ensure we could enjoy without complaint.  A major success.
 
 
Keynote Plenary Speaker
Here is the video link to the Congress’ Keynote Plenary speaker, Achim Steiner, Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) who shared keen insights about the importance of environmental education in terms of Planet and People:  http://youtu.be/KoLEEaLo13c
 
 
Good News
Part of my role was as moderator for several 2 hour sessions.  I found the events well organised, the oral presentations  professional in quality, giving us a taste of the excellent work evolving in the field.  Today we seem to be at a tipping point where communities are adopting policies based upon the solid work of environmental educators on the ground around the world.  An interesting cross-section but certainly there is more to share in 2017 from others. 
 
 
Student Reporter Opportunity
Did you know that 10 students followed the whole congress and reported on it? Read the stories about ‪#‎WEEC2015‬ prepared by the Young Reporters for the Environment from Slovakia, Turkey and Sweden!
YRE International photo stories on Exposure
 
 
Here is one example of a presentation that had everyone’s attention.
Abdellatif Khattabi, Department of Resources and Environment, National School of Forestry Engineers, Salé,Morocco, provided us with keen insights on climate change - building the capacity of stakeholders.  From his abstract he outlines:
˜˜˜˜˜˜

Education and learning for climate change:  Building the capacity of stakeholders to deal with impact of climate change – An experience from Morocco

 

Objectives: This project aims to reduce the vulnerability of coastal communities to the impacts of sea level rise, coastal flooding, and related extreme weather events. Its specific objectives are to assess population vulnerability to climate change impacts; to develop adaptation strategies and coastal policy land-use guidelines: and to develop local capacity for multi-stakeholder, participatory policy and planning processes.

Methods:  The analytical concept of the project consists of distilling relevant processes in order to identify trans-disciplinary cause-effect chains, stakeholder dialogues and social network analysis. Qualitative and quantitative techniques and inductive learning cycle were used to analyze the various existing contexts. A systematic stocktaking of the natural, the economic and social inventory, including a stakeholder analysis, from primary and secondary data was performed as well as an initial vulnerability analysis and assessment.

Results: The project has reached the objectives it has been assigned. A plan of action of integrated coastal management in the context of climate change has been developed.  This plan incorporates elements of adaptation strategies and coastal policy land-use  guidelines that reduce coastal population vulnerability and optimise the socio-economic and political trade-offs for different stakeholders, and a catalogue of useful and suitable adaptation strategies and measures deduced from stakeholder deliberation and participatory planning.  

The Project has contributed intensively to raising awareness on the impacts of climate change and sea level rise in the region, and this has created an impetus and interaction between stakeholders encouraging win-win solutions in coastal zones actions. The multiplicative role of teachers and students in raising awareness and fomenting public debate has been enhanced by the project through the development of a teaching guide on climate change adaptation.

Conclusion: This project has produced valuable information and contributed significantly to raising awareness on climate change impacts, mainly sea level rise, in the study region and also in the whole country. Moreover its results have been translated into real and concrete actions. 

˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜
When a final summary of the 2015WEEC, is made available we will post to the list serv to share with friends and colleagues in your networks.
All the best,

Safe Planet welcomes new campaign focal point Charlie Avis, BRS bids farewell to campaign co-creator Michael S. Jones

On 23 August, Safe Planet: the United Nations Campaign for Responsibility on Hazardous Chemicals and Wastes´ co-creator Michael S. Jones departed Geneva to move to Nairobi where he joins the staff of the Joint UN Development Programme-UN Environment Programme (UNDP-UNEP) Poverty-Environment Initiative.  Michael will be responsible for communications, outreach and knowledge management in the Initiative´s Poverty-Environment Facility, supporting the pro-poor sustainable development agenda globally.

Safe Planet welcomes Charlie Avis, a former Poverty-Environment Initiative Programme Officer, who has taking up the post of Public Information Officer of the Secretariat of the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions, and serves as focal point of the UN Safe Planet Campaign as of 15 August. He may be reached at charles.avis@unep.org.

“Since its launch in February 2010, Safe Planet Campaign has made a major contribution to raising awareness of the challenges we face from hazardous chemicals and wastes, and the role of the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm conventions in presenting solutions to the challenges. It has also been a huge and unforgettable part of both my professional and personal life,” Michael said.

“I intend to remain active in the Campaign as a friend and advisor. I  look forward to expanding its reach within the environmental justice community I now serve in my new capacity.”

Jana Hajduchova, Friend of Safe Planet, and Michael Jones are relocating to Nairobi

Michael´s new assignment is effective as of 15 August 2014. He remained at the Secretariat of the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions (BRS) in Geneva as part of the hand-over of his former duties to Charlie Avis.

As part of the transition, BRS has migrated SafePla.net website of Friends of Safe Planet to the Secretariat’s servers in Geneva.  SafePla.net currently serves as respository of the Campaign´s activities from its inception through Rio +20 Conference in June 2012.

“Safe Planet Campaign continues through the strong commitment and support of its members, and remains an integral part of the communication and outreach effort of the BRS Secretariat.  I am leaving behind a strong and talented team at BRS and many wondrous memories of the work we have accomplished together.  I wish to thank everyone at the Secretariat and within the UN Safe Planet community for all their kindness, enthusiasm and support during these past 4 ½ years,” Michael added.
