Global Emissions Reductions and the German "Energiewende"
Presentation of an international KAS survey
The Paris Agreement on climate change (COP21) aims at limiting global warming to well below two degrees Celsius. This can only be achieved through a fast and dramatic reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). A new study by Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) took a closer look at the emissions reduction policies of the world’s four largest producers of GHG: China, India, Russia and the USA – and examined how they view the German "Energiewende" (energy transition).
Seeking for Asia-Euro Sustainable Development
Luncheon discussion with European Chamber of Commerce Taiwan
More than 50 participants from academia and business attended a luncheon discussion on "Sustainable Management" at Grand Hyatt Hotel in Taipeh/Taiwan. The European Chamber of Commerce Taiwan ECCT, in cooperation with Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung RECAP and ESSCA management school Shanghai, had invited to this event to debate fields of common interests in sustainable development between Taiwan, Asia and Europe.
Sustainable Management in Europe and Asia
Workshop on the role of energy and climate issues in EU-Asian economic cooperation
Ensuring sustainability in global management as well as climate and energy policy was the focus of the 6th Workshop on EU-Asian Relations, organised by KAS RECAP in cooperation with UACES and the European Union Centre in Taiwan. 60 experts and young professionals from European and Asian think tanks, universities and enterprises met in Taipei to discuss the complex challenges ahead of a stronger regional cooperation.
The Regulation of Energy Investments Along the „Belt and Road“
International conference on international energy law
Energy is a central aspect of China’s “One Belt – One Road” (OBOR) policy. It is of strategic importance for China to ensure a secure and reliable supply of external energy resources to the Chinese market. Central Asia and Russia play an increasingly important role in this respect. And Europe as well has to find an answer to this dynamic development. However, the energy investment environment in these countries is challenging.
Who is liable for the impacts of climate change?
New approaches for the distribution of climate compensation
The Paris Agreement COP21 one more time has highlighted the need of the global community to develop mechanisms of balancing climate induced loss and damage. Opinions differ widely as how such compensation shall be designed. KAS RECAP and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) together with experts from Europe and Asia elaborated innovative solutions.
Cambodia's energy transition
Inception workshop of a new KAS RECAP project
KAS RECAP supports a new project of the Phnom Penh based think tank Enrich institute to develop a comprehensive framework for a national energy transition map.
Mapping the Existential Threats of Climate Change
Security Implications for Bangladesh
Bangladesh is well recognized as one of the most vulnerable countries to the effects of climate change. In recent years, as the weather patterns become increasingly extreme and unpredictable, security concerns have been raised. The coming KAS-publication makes a specific focus on the climate-related security issues in Bangladesh.
Mapping the Climate Threat
Energy Security and Climate Change in Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka faces challenges not only posed by climate change, and also energy security. As a tropical island nation, it is highly vulnerable to rising sea levels and extreme weather events. The country has been seeking to mitigate and adapt to climate change as well as to transform its national energy system. These challenges in Sri Lanka are addressed by a new KAS study.
