Following are some recent publications of the Energy, Environment and Development (EED) Program, carried out jointly by three Norwegian groups: the Fridtjof Nansen Institute, the Center for Economic Analysis, and Energy Data. The program studies factors influencing sustainable development and global environmental change at the national and international levels, such as the opportunities and limitations of international institutions, and strategies to overcome North/South conflicts. The following papers may be ordered from the Nansen Inst., POB 326, N-1324 Lysaker, Norway (fax: +47-22-125047). Price NOK 120 each except as noted (50% off for students, academic institutions), plus postage.

The Climate Policy of the EC--Too Hot to Handle? A Study of Interests and Preferences versus EC Problem-Solving Capacity, (Rep. 1993/2), J.B. Skjærseth, 88 pp. An extensive analysis of why EC policy has not become stronger over time.

Japan in the Greenhouse: Responsibilities, Policies and Prospects for Combating Global Warming (Rep. 1992/13), G. Fermann, 74 pp. Examines whether a Japanese policy toward global warming exists, the factors and processes that have influenced policymaking on the topic, and how those determinants will affect future policy.

Choosing Climate Policy: Decision Theoretical Premises (Rep. 1992/10), R. Malnes, 30 pp. Applies decision theory to develop basic premises for ascertaining what we ought to do about the climate change problem in light of what we know and do not know.

Funding for the Global Environment: The Issue of Additionality (Rep. 1992/4), O. Kjfrven, A.K. Sydnes, 30 pp. Examines how selected OECD countries have chosen to finance assistance to developing countries: whether they are providing additional funds beyond existing development assistance, a principle of great importance to developing countries in climate negotiations. Discusses ways of defining and measuring such "additionality."

From Regime Formation to Regime Functioning "Effectiveness": Coping with the Problem of Ozone Depletion (Rep. 007-1992), J.B. Skjærseth, 58 pp. This analysis of the international policy response to ozone depletion rests on the thesis that the decisions made in 1987 and 1990 to reduce and eventually phase out CFCs and halons became politically feasible largely because the actors faced an increasingly benign problem.
