Regulatory and Governance Options for Geoengineering

December 2011 to December 2012

In this research project for the Federal Environment Agency, Ecologic Institute develops specific proposals for governance of geoengineering at the international level. Based on a comprehensive analysis of regulatory framework and its gaps, the study identifies general options and specific recommended actions for the effective governance of geoengineering. A key consideration is that the recommendations can be implemented in practice.

Geoengineering is a generic term describing a range of concepts and techniques which are intended to reduce climate change or its compactsRead more

Governance of Geoengineering

August 2011 to November 2011

In this project for the German Parliament, Ecologic Institute analyses the legal framework applicable to geoengineering, identifies regulatory gaps and develops governance criteria for decision-makers. The study focuses on international law. Based on the legal analysis, the study explores the design of appropriate governance structures and the relevant actors for its implementation.

Ecologic Institute builds on its previous work on geoengineering in analysing  these questions and providing criteria for governance. The study is written in collaboration with theRead more

Policy-making in the Face of Climate Change, Water Conflicts and Human Security

CLICO Policy Brief No. 2
Together with more than 10 partners from the EU and the Middle East, Ecologic Institute is carrying out the EU-funded research project on "Climate change, hydro-conflicts and human security" (CLICO). CLICO investigates how climate change influences water availability and, consequently, human security and conflicts in the Mediterranean region. The 2nd CLICO policy brief, written by Ecologic Institute, is available for download.Read more

Review of Policies on Climate Change, Water Conflicts and Human Security

Using a case study approach, selected policies have been reviewed in specific countries in the Mediterranean, Middle East and Sahel region region; case studies of individual strategies and initiatives were also conducted at the United Nations and European Union level. As the case studies have shown, very few policies today explicitly address the link between climate change, water, human security and conflict or cooperation. Of the few policies that explicitly address the link, most are located at the international level. However, at the national level, some adaptation and sectoral policies do address risks for human security linked to water and climate change in more indirect manners, such as water user associations in Egypt or an agricultural insurance scheme in Turkey.Read more

Perspectives for Stability and Democracy in Pakistan

The European Parliament has recently published the thoroughly reviewed report of the workshop, in which Ecologic Institute has compiled keyRead more

Public panel discussion: Climate Change, Human Security, and Conflict in Africa

TimeLoc

Berlin
Germany

A mass of unstable states plagued by many conflicts – this is how Africa is frequently depicted. Climate change is expected to seriously affect many people in Africa, many of whom are poor. Climate change has been linked to both negative effects on human security – a state in which people live free from fear and free from want – and to the rise of violent conflicts. In order to find out to what extent this picture is adequate and to discuss potential policy responses, a public panel discussion titled "Climate change, human security, and conflict in Africa", was organised by EcologicRead more
