Resource Conservation Alliance The Government Purchasing Project (GPP) is dedicated to protecting the environment and human health through market-based strategies. GPP works to encourage the government to use its immense purchasing power to promote safe, cost-effective, energy-efficient, and environmentally-sound products. The government is the largest consumer in the United States, representing 20 percent of the gross national product. This purchasing leverage can be an enormously effective tool which can save taxpayers money, set the standard for private industries, expand the marketplace for "green" technologies, and consequently make these technologies and environmentally preferable products more available to consumers as a whole.

Scope and Objectives
Sustainability is a new discourse aimed at promoting a new strategy in the development of energy, water and environmental (EWE) systems. International conferences on sustainability development offer the best opportunity for the dissemination, exchange and promotion of new ideas for interdisciplinary, multi-cultural and multi-criteria evaluation of EWE systems. It is becoming increasingly clear that the quest for sustainable development requires integrating economic, social, cultural, political, and ecological factors. It requires grassroots initiatives, as well as simultaneous consideration of the local and global dimensions, and of the ways by which they interact. It also requires broadening of the space and time horizons to accommodate the need for intra-generational as well as international equity. The behavior and properties of a EWE system arise not merely from the properties of its component elements, but to a large degree also from the nature and intensity of their dynamic interlinkages.

44. SEI-B - Energy, Environment And Climate Program
energy, environment and Climate Program. Many SEIBoston’s energy and environment projects involve training, software development and dissemination.
Energy, Environment and Climate Program
The transition to modern energy forms was the engine for the industrial revolution. The threat of global climate disruption and the lack of basic energy services for billions of people now call for a new energy transition. Clean and affordable energy technologies must be brought to the market, and energy policies and institutions must foster equitable development. The Energy, Environment and Climate Program of SEI-Boston addresses this challenge through research, policy assessment and capacity building. For over two decades, we have worked throughout Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America to spur innovative energy strategies that support the goals of social equity, environment quality, and efficient economic development. We work in four research areas:
  • Climate Change Mitigation
SEI-Boston projects on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions include GHG inventories, scenarios of future emission profiles, and mitigation strategies. We analyze policy mechanisms to address climate change concerns. These include the various forms of joint project development and emission trading that are under discussion in the climate negotiations, GHG externality valuation, and carbon tax studies. SEI-Boston builds the capacity by conducting training workshops on such issues as greenhouse gas mitigation, integrated energy planning, environmental analysis, and modeling.

  • Climate Change Courses
In collaboration with International Institute for Education and Alternative Energy Development, SEI-B staff are designing and delivering a series of comprehensive courses on key economic and policy issues facing both developing and transitional economies. (Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Ecuador, Zimbabwe, Senegal, and Bangladesh) Funded by USAID, these one week courses foster active dialogue among government policy-makers and NGOs on climate science, impacts, mitigation, and policy mechanisms such as emission trading, JI, and CDM. 1998-
  • Benchmarking Projects for the Clean Development Mechanism
With ongoing work support of the US Environmental Protection Agency, SEI-Boston is helping to resolve one of the central questions for implementing CDM: How should the baselines, which will quantify the amount of emissions reductions credited, be defined? Benchmarks have the prospect of introducing greater transparency, credibility, and simplicity into the baseline-setting process. 1997- FULL REPORT or EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
  • Joint Implementation Pilot Projects in the Baltics
A series of Swedish government supported projects have evaluated the potential for joint implementation projects to meet greenhouse gas emissions targets. Projects include improved thermal integrity, building markets for biomass fuels, and introducing efficient boiler systems for large residential buildings. The report is positive on program effectiveness, but raises a number of important questions with respect to project baselines and the amount of carbon credits generated. 1998.

Energy - Its impact on the environment and society
This publication outlines the environmental and social impacts of energy, including the interaction between economic, social and environmental trends. It includes information on emissions and other environmental consequences from energy production and supply, and the social impacts of domestic competition, service quality issues and fuel poverty. Impact of energy on the environment and society (PDF, 935Kb) The first annual update (2003) of the booklet is less detailed than the main booklet above but has the same aims: to examine the key influences on the trends in the figures, including the interaction between economic, social and environmental trends and how Government policies have developed in response. Impact of energy on the environment and society - 2003 update (PDF, 101Kb) The 2003 update is issued as the first step towards a regular updating. It is our intention to carry out this updating as follows:
  • An annual overview of social and environmental impacts, of which this is the first, covering the main trends and developments, with signposts to more detailed information. This will be mainly made available to readers online.

    52. South Africa Country Analysis Brief
    Home Country Analysis Briefs South Africa Country Analysis Brief PDF version PDB version December 2003 Background Coal Synfuels Oil and Natural Gas ... Links South Africa
    The Republic of South Africa, a major coal producer and exporter, has a highly developed synthetic fuel industry and small reserves of oil. South Africa is Africa's largest energy consumer (primarily coal and petroleum) and Africa's second largest energy producer (mainly coal) behind Algeria . South Africa is a prominent member of the African Union (AU), the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) , and the Southern Africa Customs Union (SACU). Note: Information contained in this report is the best available as of November 2003 and can change.

    Since the end of apartheid and the installation of a democratic government, South Africa has made significant progress toward closing the gap between historically privileged (White) and disadvantaged (non-White) groups. Major institutional transformations of the judicial, educational, health, housing and governance sectors have accompanied and helped facilitate these changes. Despite this progress, nearly 60% of Black South Africans live below the poverty line, income disparity is among the highest in the world, crime has increased dramatically, and the country has one of the world's highest HIV/AIDS infection rates. South Africa's economic growth averaged 1.8% from 1980 to 2000, but growth has accelerated recently; real gross domestic product (GDP) grew at 3.5% in 2000 , 2.8% in 2001 and 3.0% in 2002. Real GDP is predicted to grow by 2.5% in 2003. In the 1980's, South Africa experienced double-digit inflation, but government fiscal policies have helped to reduce inflation significantly. Inflation was 5.5% in 2001 and 9.3% in 2002. Despite these positive trends, Foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows remain below expectations. FDI, which had averaged $2.7 billion from the previous five years (1997-2001) fell to $754 million in 2002.
