  1. Agents, Assumptions and Motivations Behind REDD+

    Agents, Assumptions and Motivations Behind REDD+

    Simone Lovera-Bilderbeek
    ​It was hoped that by paying forest dependent peoples and countries for their ‘service’ of conserving their forests, REDD+ would lead to a reduction in deforestation greenhouse gases. The complexities have, however, left some ambiguities. It was never agreed who would pay for the programme, and it has been criticised as ignoring the root causes of forest loss. Considering the motivations of those who promoted REDD+ this book proposes remedies to its shortfalls and recommends more efficient, equitable and effective conservation policies. Learn More

  3. Globalization

    Globalization

    C. Gopinath
    Globalization evokes mixed responses. It is praised for facilitating business, greater trade between nations and reducing poverty, and is also accused of causing job losses and homogenizing culture. While some nations cheer its benefits, others think of barriers to protect themselves. Yet, everyone agrees that it is a multidimensional and complex process that continuously reshapes our environment. Rather than wonder whether globalization is good or bad, it is important to understand how it impacts nations, organizations and individuals and be prepared to operate in that context. Learn More

  7. The Scales of Weighing Regulatory Costs

    The Scales of Weighing Regulatory Costs

    Jamison E. Colburn
    This book examines the calculation and evaluation of regulatory costs by regulators in accordance with a legislative mandate. A serious limitation in that enterprise, the possibility of technological change and innovation, often compromises those efforts and has long been under-appreciated in standard “cost-benefit analysis.” Regulators who study the inducement of innovation and the avoidance of regulatory costs by the regulated often find significant cost-saving opportunities, leading to more stringent and more effective risk governance. Ultimately, the weighing of costs in this more elaborate model is more than simple welfare maximization. It views regulatory costs as important to society for a range of reasons, some grounded in fairness and some in deliberative process values, as a society seeks to minimize all costs over time.

    The Revolution in Energy Technology

    Jorge Niosi, Xue Han
    The solar photovoltaic sector is moving forward very fast, both in terms of its own technological advancement and its standing among global renewable energy technologies. Rapid increases in solar cell efficiencies, fast technical change in solar batteries and solar glass, and economies of scale in production fuel its rapid adoption and it is becoming clear that existing forecasts about its adoption need to be updated extensively. This timely and distinctive examination of the economic side of the field takes into account solar PV’s recent and growing lead among renewable energies competing to replace fossil fuels. Learn More

  15. The Poverty of Territorialism

    The Poverty of Territorialism

    Andreas Faludi
    Drawing on territorial ideas prevalent in the Medieval period, Andreas Faludi offers readers ways to rethink the current debates surrounding territorialism in the EU. Challenging contemporary European spatial planning, the author examines the ways in which it puts the democratic control of state territories and their development in question. The notion of democracy in an increasingly interconnected world is a key issue in the EU, and as such this book advocates a Europe where national borders are questioned, and ultimately transgressed.
