China Environment Series 11(2010/2011)

Nov 10, 2010
China's success in promoting clean energy technology has been a hot story over the past year as the China Environment Forum team pulled together this special Energy and Climate issue of the China Environment Series. We ambitiously aimed to create; and hope our readers think we succeeded;in creating an issue that takes a snapshot of major energy trends in China and understand some of the complexities in the U.S.-China energy and climate relations. This eleventh issue is our biggest yet, due not just to our inability to say no to so many great paper proposals, but also because of the dynamism in clean energy developments in China and many exciting developments in U.S.-China energy cooperation;in both government, NGO, and business spheres. We hope you enjoy this issue! This special Energy and Climate issue was made possible through a grant from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, as well as support from the Blue Moon Fund, USAID, Vermont Law School, Western Kentucky University, and the ENVIRON Foundation. more

PEN 19 - Voluntary Initiatives, Regulation, and Nanotechnology Oversight

Nov 04, 2010
Enough voluntary initiatives for nanotechnology have been implemented so they can be looked at together, in a comparative sense, and historically, in terms of their relationship to programs that have preceded them. This report provides that analysis for the first time. In Voluntary Initiatives, Regulation, and Nanotechnology Oversight: Charting a Path, Dr. Daniel Fiorino provides a taxonomy of the various types of voluntary initiatives (past and present) and the partnerships that underlie them, as well as an assessment of the factors that are most likely to contribute to program success. As nanotechnologies advance, along with other emerging technologies, voluntary programs will continue to play an important role in the governance portfolio. For this reason, evaluating and learning from these endeavors will remain critical to better oversight. This report is an important contribution to that learning process. more
