- DocumentTata Energy Research Institute, India, 1998The Kyoto Protocol has been hailed as providing a major breakthrough in climate change negotiations.

The so-called IS92 scenarios were pathbreaking. They were the first global scenarios to provide estimates for the full suite of greenhouse gases. Much has changed since then in our understanding of possible future greenhouse gas emissions and climate change.DocumentIntergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, 2001This Special Report was prepared following a request from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the Parties to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer.DocumentIntergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, 2001The Third Assessment Report of Working Group I of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) builds upon past assessments and incorporates new results from the past five years of research on climate change.DocumentCenter for Communication Programs, Johns Hopkins University, 2000As the century begins, natural resources are under increasing pressure, threatening public health and development.

Moreover, this is occuring at a time in which the process of globalisation is changing patters of trade and investment, placing agricultural producers and communities under tremendous pressure to adapt in order to survive.DocumentCenter for International Climate and Environmental Research, Oslo, 2001Reporting on case studies in Kenya and Tanzania, this paper illustrates the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report that claims that the world’s poorest populations will be the hardest hit by climate changes. The IPCC states that there is, therefore, a shift in focus from climate impacts as a purely natural scientific phenomenon to climate impacts as a development issue.DocumentExport Credit Agencies International NGO Campaign, 2000This article is very critical of the role of ECAs in Indonesia, past and future. In the Suharto era, export credit agencies (ECAs) played a major role in financing environmentally and socially unsustainable investments that have depleted Indonesia’s extraordinary natural wealth.DocumentNautilus Institute for Security and Sustainable Development, 2001This paper describes four 10 year scenarios of the possible future US-China relationship. The four scenarios were generated over the course of two three-day workshops attended by US and Chinese analysts.
