- DocumentEnvironmental and Societal Impacts Group, 1997DocumentSchool of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, 1999It is widely accepted that the effective planning of water resources becomes more urgent with each passing year. Some would argue that this need is driven by the increasing size and density of human populations at the catchment and urban scale. Others point out that exponential growth in economic output and consumption produces ever higher volumes of waste water.DocumentChristian Aid, 1999What is debt? Rich countries pursue highly indebted poor countries to service their foreign financial debts, at great cost to the millions who subsequently go without vital health and education services. But industrialised countries are themselves responsible for a much larger debt to the global community.DocumentClimate Change and Disasters Group, Institute of Development Studies, Sussex, UK, 2000Planet-wide environmental problems like climate change and depletion of the ozone layer first became common knowledge and mainstream political concerns in the early 1990's, partly through the public and media debates surrounding the Earth Summit. Many assumed that solutions would mainly be up to governments co-operating at international level.DocumentStockholm Environment Institute, 1999Aims to first briefly describe the broad global, economic, political, social, institutional context in which ACP countries currently find themselves. Describes the health status and key health threats in ACP countries in an environmental context and reviews environmental developments in the region and the ways in which they are influencing health.DocumentIntergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, 2000Reviews the current understanding of the relationship between land use (especially forestry), carbon dioxide emissions and the Kyoto Protocol agreementsTopics cover: how the global carbon cycle operates, and how this relates to forestry activitiesaccounting rulescomparison of the usefulness of models and ground-based assessments of changes in carbon stocksshort term prospectDocumentTata Energy Research Institute, India, 1998The Kyoto Protocol has been hailed as providing a major breakthrough in climate change negotiations. However, some questions do arise:What are some of its major achievements?How does the developing world view this?This publication attempts to answer these questions and assesses the post-Kyoto developments from the perspective of developing countries.DocumentTata Energy Research Institute, India, 1998The Kyoto Protocol has been hailed as providing a major breakthrough in climate change negotiations. However, some questions do arise:What are some of its major achievements?How does the developing world view this?This publication attempts to answer these questions and assesses the post-Kyoto developments from the perspective of developing countries.DocumentInternational Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, 2000Until now policy makers and researchers considered the problem of uncertainty and verification to be of minor importance for the Kyoto process. This article indicates that the first studies that recently appeared on uncertainty estimation of carbon accounting reveal that uncertainties of the reported emissions on the country level are large.DocumentIntergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, 2001In 1992 the IPCC released emission scenarios to be used for driving global circulation models to develop climate change scenarios. 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.
