Ökosystembasierte Ansätze zur Anpassung an den Klimawandel und zum Klimaschutz im deutschsprachigen Raum

Climate change and its impacts are already tangible and necessitate swift and concrete adaptation and mitigation actions. This involves a dual approach, which combats the causes of climate change and also supports society in dealing with a changing climate and its effects. This comprehensive study synthesizes evidence from ecosystem-based projects from across the German-speaking regions of Europe and presents the goals and activities of such projects, their benefits, and the barriers they face. It also develops recommendations for policy makers. The study is available for download.Read more

Our Energy Solutions Workshop Comes to Florida

TimeLoc
23 March 2015
25 March 2015
Florida
United States
In an effort to increase education on the environmental, health and socioeconomic impacts of unconventional drilling such as fracking, Ecologic Institute and FracTracker Alliance are collaborating through an initiative to share the American fracking experience. As part of this initiative, a compelling series of 14 US-based and international workshops in affected communities has been created. One such workshop was hosted by the South Florida Wildlands Association in partnership with Ecologic Institute and FracTracker to share the latest insights on oil development activities (including seismic testing) in Florida and ways that the public can get involved.Read more

Key Drivers for Unsustainable Resource Use

Categories, Effects and Policy Pointers
Prevailing resource use patterns of the global socio-industrial metabolism are unsustainable. For effective resource policies, drivers for such unsustainable resource use and their effects need to be better understood and mapped. In the context of the FP7 research project DYNAMIX, Dr. Martin Hirschnitz-Garbers and co-authors identified by means of meta-analysis a set of ten driver categories that affect unsustainable resource use.

Bioökonomie und Landkonflikte

Genug Land für alle(s)?
In times of conflicting environmental objectives, the bioeconomy has evolved as one of the most contested fields in resource and climate policies. This article by Timo Kaphengst and Stephanie Wunder stresses the overall scarcity of land as a significant obstacle for further expansion of biomass production for the bioeconomy. The authors argue for a more demand-driven strategy to alleviate stress on land ecosystems. The article is available for download.Read more

Land Grabbing

Der globale Wettlauf um Agrarland
The foreign companies come in numbers. They dispel the people from the rural areas which were used by them for centuries. They don't confer with the indigenous people. The deals are made in hidden chambers. The only things that the locals see are other people with big tractors invading their areas. The sample is available for download.

Improvement of the Land Footprint Methodology Through Impact Oriented Land Use Indicators – International Expert Workshop

TimeLoc
25 June 2014
Berlin
Germany

The pressure on land resources to provide biomass for food, feed, material and energy is increasing. As the products are traded globally the related environmental and social impacts elsewhere are hardly visible and regionally decoupled.

Land footprints and their impact-oriented extensions can provide a useful assessment of consumption related environmental impacts on land.

While the first area-based indicators, i.e. indicators using hectares...Read more
