Global Climate Change Digest

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



Item #d98feb68

Fourth Workshop: International Energy Agency Energy Technology Systems Analysis Program/Annex VI, ca. 450 pp. (loosebound), Jan. 1998 (ETSAP).

This latest workshop in the IEA-ETSAP series (Rome, Italy, Nov. 1997) included a wide range of energy-emission modeling topics, and also background material oriented toward the Kyoto meeting which soon followed.

Item #d98feb69

Climate Change Mitigation and European Land Use Policies, W.N. Adger, D. Pettenella, M. Whitby, Eds., 368 pp., Nov. 1997, $95/Ј49.95 (CAB Intl.).

Aimed at practitioners, academics and policy makers in the field of agriculture and forestry, who wish to understand the importance of this issue for European and global land use. Contributors consider greenhouse gas emissions at the sub-national, national, EU and global scales. Efficiency, equity and the implications of policy are this volume's primary focus.

Item #d98feb70

Climate Change: Mobilizing Global Effort, 132 pp., 1997, $38/DM57/FF195 (OECD).

Offers new perspectives on the role of national governments in catalyzing long-term responses through these principal themes: (1) industrialized countries' progress in implementing existing commitments to reduce greenhouse gases; (2) the role of governments and others in creating markets and stimulating innovative technologies to reduce greenhouse gases; and (3) barriers to and opportunities for combating climate change in developing countries. Also presents the views of the financial community, the insurance industry, the green business sector, and others.

Item #d98feb71

CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion--A New Basis for Comparing Emissions of a Major Greenhouse Gas, 395 pp., 1997 (IEA). Data are also available on disk.

Responding to the growing demand for reliable data on energy-related CO2 emissions, the IEA has gathered the most current and previously unpublished data on this subject, which provides a basis for comparing CO2 emissions in over 130 countries by sector and by fuel. The estimates were calculated using IEA energy data and the default methods and emission factors from revised IPCC guidelines; they may vary from numbers submitted by countries to the UNFCCC.

Item #d98feb72

Perspectives on Global Change: The TARGETS Approach, J. Rotmans, B. de Vries, Eds., ca. 432 pp., 1997, $69.95 (Cambridge Univ.)

Developed by the Dutch Natl. Inst. of Public Health (RIVM), the TARGETS (Tool to Assess Regional And Global Environmental and Health Targets for Sustainability) model integrates issues of sustainable development on a global level. In addition, the model can be applied at the country level, and for a number of countries combined. The model can develop scenarios for future population and health, energy and economy, water, land use and food, and global element (C, P, N, S) cycles.

Item #d98feb73

Eco-Efficiency: The Business Link to Sustainable Development, L.D. Desimone, F. Popoff, 292 pp., Oct. 1997, $25 (MIT).

Written with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development. Describes the principles of eco-efficiency, business activities that create economic value while reducing ecological impact and resource use. Presents case studies, including those involving international companies such as 3M and Dow Chemical Co., and discusses the value of partnerships with other companies, communities, regulators and others.

Item #d98feb74

Frontiers of Sustainability: Environmentally Sound Agriculture, Forestry, Transportation and Power Production, R. Dower, D. Ditz et al., 415 pp., May 1997, $34 pbk. (Island Press for WRI).

Builds on the recommendations of the President's Council for Sustainable Development to develop a plan and the first practical vision for achieving sustainable development in the U.S. Examines the environmental performance and trends in four key economic sectors (agriculture, electricity generation, transportation, and pulp and paper manufacturing). The implications of potentially dangerous trends and developments are explored, and methods given for managing or reducing emergent trends.

Item #d98feb75

The Way Forward: Beyond Agenda 21, F. Dodds, Eds., 304 pp., Ј15.95, 1997 (Earthscan).

Reviews the successes and failures made at the intergovernmental level and by NGOs, national governments, businesses and community action groups. Essays cover topics including the Climate Convention, implementation of the Rio agreements, trends to shape the next five years (including consumption and production), and perspectives for the future (from Europe, the U.N., NGOs, and southern governments).

Item #d98feb76

Sustainable Development: OECD Policy Approaches for the 21st Century, 182 pp., 1997, $20/FF100/DM29 (OECD).

Focuses mainly on the OECD region, with linkages to other countries and regions. The first part of the volume analyses socio-economic issues (environment and the economy; trade, consumption and production patterns). The second part looks at sectoral issues in fields including energy, transport, and climate change.

Item #d98feb77

Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories: Interim Results from the U.S. Country Studies Program, B.V. Braatz, B.P. Jallow et al., Eds., 404 pp., 1996, $156 (Kluwer).

Presents the results of preliminary national inventories of 20 countries in Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe and the Newly Independent States, and Latin America, along with regional and global syntheses of the national results. Discusses results in the context of national and regional socioeconomic characteristics, and the regional and global syntheses compare national inventory estimates to their published estimates.
