  • Tropical Agriculture in Transition - Opportunities for Mitigating Greenhouse Gas Emissions?

    Production from tropical agricultural systems will need to increase to satisfy the rising food demand of an increasing population coupled with changes in consumption patterns. At the same time, the agricultural sector is a significant source of greenhouse gases (GHG) in many developing countries, which can be attributed mainly to land-use change ...

  • Trends in Product Level Carbon Management

    In October 2009 ENDS Carbon will be publishing a Trends Report on product-level carbon management, In partnership with Ecometrica. Many companies know that the carbon emitted up and down their supply chains is much more significant than  their direct greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Managing these cradle-to-grave supply chain emissions using ...

  • Alternative Water Supply Systems

    Owing to climate change related uncertainties and anticipated population growth, different parts of the developing and the developed world (particularly urban areas) are experiencing water shortages or flooding and security of fit-for-purpose supplies is becoming a major issue. The emphasis on decentralized alternative water supply systems has ...

  • Natural Sinks of Co2

    Most of the attention with respect to the increase in atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations centers around three issues: human-generated sources of carbon, mostly from burning fossil fuels; tropical deforestation, which accelerates the production of atmospheric carbon while causting havoc with biodiversity and the economic development of ...

  • Mitigating Climate Change Through Food and Land Use

    SummaryLand makes up a quarter of Earth’s surface, and its soil and plants hold three times as much carbon as the atmosphere. More than 30 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions arise from the land use sector. Thus, no strategy for mitigating global climate change can be complete or successful without reducing emissions from agriculture, ...

  • Carbon Reduction: Policies, Strategies and Technologies

    In this time of increasingly pressing concern about global climate change and its potentially irreversible and detrimental impacts on the world's population, it is considered urgent to find effective means for significantly reducing local, regional, national and international greenhouse gas emissions in homes, businesses, industries and ...

  • Evaluation of GHG Emissions from Septic Systems

    The emission rates of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from individual onsite septic systems used for the management of domestic wastewater were determined in this study. A static flux chamber method was used to determine the emission rates of methane, carbon dioxide, and nitrous oxide gases from eight septic tanks and two soil dispersal systems. A ...

  • Climate Change: Significance for Agriculture and Forestry

    Societies throughout the world depend on food, fiber and forest products. Continuity and security of agricultural and forest production are therefore of paramount importance. Predicted changes in climate could be expected to alter, perhaps significantly, the levels and relative agricultural and forestry production of different nations over ...

  • Carbon Inventory Methods

    Carbon inventory requiring estimation of carbon dioxide emissions and removals in land-use categories for national greenhouse gas inventory and changes in stocks of carbon in projects aimed at climate change mitigation has become increasingly important in global efforts to address climate change. Hence, there is a need for a handbook that provides ...

  • The Impact of International Climate Change Policies: Leading Lawyers on Counseling Clients, Navigating Recent and Upcoming Developments, and Recognizing the Economic Impact of Climate Change Policy (Inside the Minds)

    This product provides perspective on recent changes and upcoming developments in climate change law in the United States and abroad.

It offers advice on managing the legal side of environmental ...

  • Striking the Balance between Nutrient Removal in Wastewater Treatment and Sustainability

    This study focuses on sustainability impacts as wastewater treatment plants implement treatment technologies to meet increasingly stringent nutrient limits. The objective is to determine if a point of “diminishing returns” is reached where the sustainability impacts of increased levels of nutrient removal outweigh the benefits of better water ...

  • Shifting Mode: Low Carbon Strategies To Reduce Business Travel Costs

    Climate change, increasing fuel prices, regulation and shifting client expectations all present challenges for the way companies organise travel.Depending on the sector, business travel can account for up to three-quarters of a company’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. A coherent, low carbon business travel strategy is therefore a central, and ...

  • The Economics of Conservation Programs

    The objective of this book is to review and to analyze the economics of conservation programs in theory and in practice. Demand side management (DSM) is one of the most topical issues in regulating electric utilities, both in the United States and internationally. DSM consists of various measures at the level of demand (households, commerce, ...

  • Accounting for Climate Change

    The assessment of greenhouse gases (GHGs) emitted to and removed from the atmosphere is high on both political and scientific agendas internationally. As increasing international concern and cooperation aim at policy-oriented solutions to the climate change problem, several issues have begun to arise regarding verification and compliance under ...

  • Beyond Kyoto - A New Global Climate Certificate System

    This balanced analysis presents news from the ‘climate-protection front’. On the down-side, neither the current 'Kyoto-Protocol' Climate Protection System with (legally binding) commitments by major countries to reduce or limit their greenhouse gas emissions nor various proposals for improving the commitment system are capable of meeting the ...

  • Assessing Climate Change

    Despite the inadequacies of the temperature measurement network, there is little doubt that much of the Earth has been undergoing a moderate warming since about the start of the 20th century, although this warming has been more pronounced in some areas, and it wavered in mid-century. A critical question facing mankind is: Has this global warming ...
