  • OF GENERAL INTEREST: NATIONAL POLICIES

Item #d94apr8

"Needed: A National Renewable Energy Strategy," K.L. Kozloff (World Resour. Inst., 1709 New York Ave. NW, Washington DC 20006), Environ. Sci. & Technol., 28(4), 196A-197A, Apr. 1994. The strategy must be national because some benefits (e.g., job creation) accrue to states, whereas others affect much larger regions.


Item #d94apr9

The March 1994 issue of Australian Commodities--Forecasts and Issues contains an article on climate change and policy development. The journal is published quarterly by ABARE; single copies cost $A25; annual subscriptions cost $A75, plus overseas airmail shipping ($A18 Asia, Pacific; $A26 Europe, USA, CIS). Contact ABARE, GPO Box 1563, Canberra 2601 ACT, Australia (tel: 06 272 2203; fax 06 272 2001).


Item #d94apr10

"Reducing Emissions of Ozone-Depleting Substances in Brazil," S.M. Machado Carvalho (Inst. Eletrotéchnica e Energia, Univ. Sao Paulo, CP 64521, CEP 05508-900, Sao Paulo, Brazil), Global Environ. Change, 3(4), 350-356, Dec. 1993.

Implementation of Montreal Protocol programs is not as straightforward in developing countries as it may seem to the developed world. This article describes problems encountered in Brazil, such as strong development pressures and the lack of a well-established national infrastucture to monitor the process. Recommends establishing a National Task Group Office and investing in education and training.


Item #d94apr11

Four items from ibid., 3(1), Mar. 1993.

"Prospects for CO2 Emissions Reduction Policy in the USA," S. Rayner (Pacific Northwest Lab., 901 D St. SW, S. 900, Washington DC 20024), 12-31. Examines the political and social context in the U.S. In the medium term, the most cost-effective contribution the U.S. may make to global emissions reduction is technology transfer to developing countries, leaving domestic fossil fuel reductions to the long term.

"Indonesia and Global Climate Change Negotiations--Potential Opportunities and Constraints for Participation, Leadership and Commitment," C.H. Petrich (Bldg. 4500-N, MS-6206, Oak Ridge Nat. Lab., POB 2008, Oak Ridge TN 37831), 53-77. Examination of factors likely to affect Indonesia's participation shows that, although the Indonesian government may be an advocate of sustainable development, it has little ability to follow through on large-scale commitments because of domestic concerns.

"Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions in China--Institutional, Legal and Cultural Constraints and Opportunities," R.D. Perlack (Oak Ridge Nat. Lab., POB 2008, Oak Ridge TN 37831), M. Russell, Z. Shen, 78-100. Because of more immediate problems, China will not take steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions unless the industrialized countries reduce their own emissions and contribute money and technology to developing countries.

"Implementation of Greenhouse Gas Reductions in the European Community--Institutional and Cultural Factors," B. Wynne (Ctr. Environ. Change, Lancaster Univ., Bailrigg, Lancaster LA1 4YF, UK), 101-128. Attempts to establish EC policy on global warming have coincided with increasing conflict over moves toward greater monetary and political union, but the proposed carbon tax is likely to be favored as a mechanism least suggestive of central political authority. The informal influence on policy of the existing NGO network is considerable.
