Global Climate Change DigestArchives of the
Global Climate Change Digest

A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999



Item #d95sep1

"Compliance with the Climate Change Convention," W.N. Adger (Ctr. Social & Econ. Res. on the Global Environ., Univ. E. Anglia, Norwich NR4 7TJ, UK), Atmos. Environ., 29(16), 1905-1915, Aug. 1995.

Focuses on two of the many political and economic factors influencing compliance of countries with the convention: translation of the convention requirements to national programs (particularly in the European Union), and joint implementation through bilateral offsets of emissions. Joint implementation is unlikely to be a major part of global strategies to reduce greenhouse emissions, due to transactions costs and to disputes over equity in resource use.

Item #d95sep2

"Implications of Montreal Protocol: With Particular Reference to India and Other Developing Countries," K. Chatterjee (Develop. Alternatives, B-32 Tara Crescent, Qutab Inst. Area, New Delhi 110 016, India), ibid., 1883-1903.

Summarizes the state of the ozone and UV-B radiation climate in India based on 25 years of data, and discusses likely environmental implications. Addresses the economic implications of the Montreal Protocol for India and other developing countries, and suggests alternative R&D activities required for implementation of the Protocol by those countries.

Item #d95sep3

"Strategies to Enhance Adaptability: Technological Change, Sustainable Growth and Free Trade," I.M. Goklany (Off. Policy Analysis, U.S. Dept. Interior, 1849 C St. NW, Washington DC 20240), Clim. Change, 30(4), 427-449, Aug. 1995.

Proposes these three broad, interrelated strategies as ways to enhance adaptability to global (including climate) change, and some principles for developing the social, legal and economic framework necessary to effect these strategies. The strategies should be such that they could be implemented today, and they should have clear benefits now and in the future.
