Abstract [Oct. 16th, 2006|10:18 am]
Environmental Justice and Conservation Conference
"Industrial Pollution & Alternative Development"
By Jonathan Lewis

Climate policy is increasingly focused on developing countries, even though they have done little to contribute to global warming. This is partly
because the developing world is disproportionately vulnerable to climate
change, partly because its greenhouse gas emissions are projected to increase sharply, and partly because emissions reductions can be achieved
more cheaply there. This presentation will consider some of the issues
that arise when environmental practitioners from industrialized countries
design climate change programs aimed at the developing world. In particular, it will look at one US-based organization's efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from both coal-fired power plants in China and household cooking stoves in rural villages.
