  • The impact of clean development mechanism in achieving sustainable development

    The flexible mechanism of the Kyoto Protocol, the clean development mechanism (CDM), should fulfil a twin objective: cost-effective greenhouse gas mitigation and enhancement of sustainable development in developing countries. As most host CDM countries have not established the proper institutional capacity to approve CDM projects and, at the same time, are prerogative to define sustainable ...

  • India Mulls Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) Possibilities

    The Clean Development Mechanism could attract huge financial flows to developing economies. But many are sceptical – and some are looking to the US instead. Tom Whitehouse reports from IndiaIn theory, the appeal and potential of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) in India are considerable. As one of the world’s fastest-growing and most energy-intensive economies, India’s need for clean energy ...


  • Climate change & clean technology: from challenge to opportunity

    Over the past few years, climate change and sustainability have been catapulted to the forefront of headline news. As ongoing public pressure for improved environmental stewardship continues to mount, governments are actively pursuing legislation, including regulations, to accelerate positive change. We have already witnessed significant regulatory, policy and legal changes related to lower ...

  • The Clean Development Mechanism: Kyoto Comes Home to Roost

    The Clean Development Mechanism - a cornerstone of the Kyoto Protocol which allows industrialised nations to invest in emission reduction projects in the developing world - is inching towards reality. This summer, the European Commission unveiled plans to let companies buy CDM credits to help meet their targets under the EU emissions trading scheme. But long-running controversies over the CDM's ...

  • Improving the clean development mechanism with sustainability-rating and rewarding system

    As the world contemplates a post-Kyoto Protocol climate change policy architecture, some key observations of the clean development mechanism (CDM) remind us that climate change policies should be linked more closely to the promotion of sustainability. A sustainability-rated CDM (SR-CDM) is proposed in this paper; it applies the gold standard as a way of assessing the sustainability value of ...

  • Energy and Environment in the European Union

    Introduction Energy gives personal comfort and mobility to people, and is essential for the generation of industrial, commercial and societal wealth. On the other hand, energy production and consumption (including heat and electricity production, oil refining and final uses in households, services, industry and transport) place considerable pressures on the environment. These pressures include ...

  • Renewable energy technologies and climate change policies in India

    Fossil fuel use is the largest contributor to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the primary cause of global climate change. India, with a large endowment of coal, has an energy system that is highly carbon intensive. Besides, large quantities of traditional biomass resources consumed for the energy needs of the vast rural population are exerting pressures on forests and village woodlots. Thus, the ...
