China Environment Publications
Through a generous grant from the U.S. Institute of Peace, ECSP organized a forum in Hong Kong to provide opportunities for 65 environmentalists and journalists from the three areas of Greater China to discuss improving the capacity of environmental NGOs and the quality of environmental reporting in the region. Part 1 (Chinese).
ECSP Report 4 includes pieces on the role of environmental degradation in population displacement; U.S. population policy since the Cairo conference; and a synthesis of the connection between environmental transformation and conflict. Complete report.
The second day of the Green NGO and Environmental Journalist Forum, the participants focused on NGO capacity building and NGO-journalist communication. Section 4 (continued).
The United States and China together produce almost 40 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions that now threaten to alter the global climate. Any successful global effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions will therefore require the direct support and participation of both countries.
Section 7 reflects on the prospect for environmental cooperation and peacemaking in this and other regions of conflict.
ECSP invited a wide range of scientists, government officials, nongovernmental activists, and defense analysts from across the globe to write commentaries on Global Trends 2015.
Includes sections on NGO networking and partnering; environmental education methods; and building the capacity of green NGOs.
