Pandemie und Energiesicherheit:

Force Majeure in Asien

Das Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 trifft die asiatischen Energiemärkte mit voller Wucht. Der Nachfrageeinbruch für Öl, Gas und Kohle sowie die unterbrochenen Wertschöpfungsketten, u.a. bei der Herstellung von Solarpanels, können Energieversorgungsstrukturen verändern und den Klimaschutz gefährden.

The Fear of COVID-19 in Africa

While Ebola is over in the DR Congo, COVID-19 threatens to plunge the country and the rest of the continent into a humanitarian crisis

The COVID-19 pandemic has reached Africa. Almost every country is affected. A humanitarian crisis is looming. The number of victims could be much higher than in Italy, China and the United States because of feeble health systems Africa’s governments are responsible for. The expectable aid aiming at improving their health systems after the current crisis must no longer be for free, but include conditions and duties. For this, the ‘G20 Compact With Africa’ initiative and its country partnerships offer an existing framework. Meanwhile, the health crisis in Africa could be followed by a political crisis that might topple a number of African governments.

The US-China Trade Conflict and its Impacts to Energy Security in Asia-Pacific

A Survey of Key Opinion Leaders

The survey report examines the impacts of the ongoing U.S.–China trade conflict and the resultant geopolitical changes on seven countries in Asia Pacific: Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan and South Korea. There was widespread consensus among the experts interviewed for this study that the U.S. –China trade conflict was having only minor direct impacts on the energy security or decarbonisation of these countries. Despite this, various secondary effects that could impact the energy markets in Asia Pacific and countries around the world were identified.

Zwischen Ignoranz und Notstand

Der Umgang mit Covid-19 in Südostasien

Alle Länder Südostasiens pflegen enge Beziehungen mit China, die auch Wochen nach dem Ausbruch des Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 in Wuhan nur zögerlich eingeschränkt wurden. Myanmar, Laos und Vietnam teilen Landgrenzen mit China, die teilweise sehr porös sind. Dennoch sind die offiziell gemeldeten Fallzahlen im globalen Vergleich gering. Die elf Länder haben auf die weltweite Pandemie ganz unterschiedlich reagiert.

„Ist ein Ende der Paralyse in Sicht?“

Die Lähmung des Sicherheitsrates der Vereinten Nationen in der COVID-19 Pandemie

Seit einem Monat steht die globale Weltordnung vor der größten Herausforderung seit dem Zweiten Weltkrieg. Doch das zur Bewältigung von Krisen und Konflikten mandatierte Organ, der Sicherheitsrat der Vereinten Nationen (VN), hüllt sich bislang in Schweigen. Eine von Deutschland und den weiteren neun gewählten Mitgliedern eingebrachte Forderung nach einer Sitzung zur COVID-19-Pandemie könnte diese Woche einen neuen Impuls setzen.

Todos tenemos que pagar por Europa

Marcos Teurer

La crisis del coronavirus está llevando a la Unión monetaria europea directamente hacia una nueva crisis existencial. Puede que de momento no sea obvio: Incluso los países mas afectados por la pandemia – ante todo Italia y España- se financian sin problemas en los mercados de bonos. Pero las apariencias engañan. La prima de riesgo italiana sigue siendo moderada entre otras cosas gracias a un nuevo programa de estabilización lanzado por el Banco Central Europeo que se compromete a comprar deuda por valor de 750.000 millones de Euros. Sin este cortafuegos la situación probablemente ya sería mas crítica.
