Scenario Planning for Environmental Management
 
02:37
This Simpleshow created by the James Hutton Institute helps to explain Scenario Planning for Environmental Management. It has been produced as part of the EU funded project COMET-LA (COmmunity-based Management of EnvironmenTal challenges in Latin America, http://www.comet-la.eu), a project that studied approaches to support sustainable community-based management of natural resources in a context of climate change and increasing competition for resource use. A key to supporting planning today is to understand how pressures such as climate change can affect future natural systems and societies. Considering the connections between environmental, economic and social issues is fundamental for prosperity and sustainability, with consequent implications for any debates about future land use and environmental management. Scenario planning can assist with this. A scenario is a coherent, internally consistent, and plausible description of a possible future state (including both social and natural aspects). It is not a forecast; rather, each scenario is one alternative image of how the future can unfold. The process should encourage consideration of the interactions between pressures or drivers from across levels. Scenario-planning can take a variety of forms, and is certainly not a ‘panacea’ for all problems, but we believe that it has potential to help tackle many environmental challenges. The process of developing scenarios is thought to be useful for aiding partnerships to make explicit, share and reconcile different knowledges, expectations and aspirations. The James Hutton Institute is carrying out research on other applications and challenges associated with scenario planning for environmental management: visit http://www.hutton.ac.uk to find out more.

Transforming the Knowledge System to Support Research Integration and Implementation by Jill Jaeger
 
25:57
Plenary talk from the First Global Conference on Research Integration and Implementation: "Transforming the Knowledge System to Support Research Integration and Implementation." Responding to the persistent problems of unsustainability and other global challenges needs a transformation of the knowledge system as a whole. This includes a transformation in research funding and in education. For effective implementation-oriented research, stakeholders have to be involved both in the design of research programmes and in all phases of the research. This is a challenge for proposal and project evaluation. A great deal of flexibility, creativity and learning is required for implementation-oriented research, which suggests that funding of phases of research rather than for projects as a whole is more effective. Within the academic system, skills that are needed for designing and facilitating processes of engagement and learning have to receive significant attention and credit must be given for this work, so that career paths for the integration and implementation research community become established and promising. Examples of integrative, implementation-oriented, transformative research in which the knowledge system has been opened up and sustainability challenges have been tackled are presented. Speaker biography: Dr. Jaeger is an independent scholar and senior researcher at the Sustainable Europe Research Institute (SERI). She graduated with a PhD in Geography (Climatology) from the University of Colorado in 1974. In 1987 Dr. Jaeger became Project Leader at the Stockholm Environment Institute, Sweden, and in 1991 she became Director of the Climate Policy Division of the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy, Germany. At the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), Austria, she was Deputy Director from 1994-1998. Dr. Jaeger was Executive Director of the International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change (IHDP) from 1999 until 2002. She joined the Sustainable Europe Research Institute (SERI), Austria, in 2004. In addition to contributing numerous scientific publications in books and scientific journals, she has participated in a range of research projects and environmental assessments. Her main interest is in the linking of knowledge and action for transitions to sustainability. Introduced by Deborah O'Connell. The First Global Conference on Research Integration and Implementation was held in Canberra in Australia, online and at three co-conferences (Lueneburg in Germany, The Hague in the Netherlands and Montevideo in Uruguay), 8-11 September 2013.

Dorsey, Assistant Professor, Environmental Studies, Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire (By telephone) Howard R. Groves, Senior Executive, Great Global Friendship Run, Atlanta, Georgia (In Studio) ======================================================== As our four experts will share during this EmeraldPlanet television program the United States Forest Service in collaboration with the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies reports that vulnerability to climate change differs substantially across regions, communities and even households, and the communities that are most vulnerable to climate change also face poverty, health disparities, and other social inequities. Recognizing that these socio-economic challenges impede the resilience, health, and prosperity of communities, the recent Progress Report of the Interagency Climate Change Adaptation Task Force: Recommended Actions in Support of a National Climate Change Adaptation Strategy sets forth as one of its guiding principles that policymakers should prioritize helping the people, places and infrastructure that are the most vulnerable to climate impacts, and meaningfully involve these same communities in designing and implementing adaptation plans. As the Progress Report notes, helping vulnerable people and places reduce their exposure and sensitivity to climate change and improve their capacity to predict, prepare for, and avoid adverse impacts requires thoughtful planning. Such planning, in turn, requires a comprehensive understanding of the status and scope of research, programs and actions on climate change and environmental challenges for vulnerable communities, particularly as they relate to eliminating disparities and advancing health equities across the range of climate and environmental issues. www.emerald-planet.orttp://tinyurl.com/6qphtxr (Facebook) http://twitter.com/#!/emeraldplanet1 (Twitter) http://tinyurl.com/7a2ru7f (Linkedin)

Ganesh Kumar Shrestha, Director Ganeral, Department of Environment of Nepal Protection of human health through preserving our lovely planet is one of the primary obligations for all the states. Environment is a cross-cutting issue which covers the total of all surroundings of a living organism, including natural forces and other living things. In present days, the promotion of environmental friendly activities through awareness and implementation as well as enforcement to the concerned agencies has becoming widely realized interventions. Environmental degradation and global warming has becoming widespread concerns and Nepal is no exception. Elsewhere the climate change has becoming buzz word and its impact on sectoral issues mainly in agriculture, forest; water resources and threatening livelihood of the people are to be addressed largely. Both anthropogenic as well as natural factors have triggered these issues. In fact they are interrelated process to each other which should be taken into well consideration while planning the adaptation and mitigation programs. In addition to these issues, pollution related to air, water, soil, noise and municipal wastages have becoming primary environmental concerns in Nepal. Their apparent effects are largely realized from policy level to the implementation levels. In order to minimize the problems, both legal and implementation aspects should be made stronger within the framework of the Government Policy, Act, Regulations, Standards and Guidelines. The former issues can be addressed at the higher level, whereas the later issues through the implementation level by the Departments and organizations working in the grass root level. In view of this effect, a functional arm of the Ministry with the mandate for implementation, monitoring and enforcement of the environmental activities in Nepal was realized since long time. In addition to the Environment Protection Act (1996) and Environment Protection Rules (1997), the Interim Constitution of Nepal (2007, Article 16) has also emphasized on the right to live in a healthy environment. To outreach the concept of environmental management in grass root level, to resolve the problems created by climate change and due to anthropogenic factor, to coordinate between governmental, nongovernmental and private organizations and to effective monitoring of environmental management, Government of Nepal established the Department of Environment (DoE) in 27 July 2012 (As of 12 Shrawan 2069 BS) under the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment (MoSTE). As per the Secretary level decision in 5 March 2013, (As of 22 Phalgun 2069 BS) Department was formally opened in Information Technology (IT), Park, Panauti, Kavre District. It was a mean time adjustment until having its office in Kathmandu. As a result of the difficulties to cope the work load with growing numbers of stakeholders' request, the Department finally moved to Kupandole, Lalitpur District by the Minister level decision on 28 October 2013 (As of 11 Kartik 2070 BS). Ever since of its establishment, it has shown its presence in the national and international level. It is widely believed that the Department will be an instrumental in dealing the environmental related issues and maintaining and enhancing the quality environment for the descent life and livelihood through promotional and enforcement related efforts. http://doenv.gov.np/about_us/4/introduction

SEPTA ESMS | Environmental and Sustainability Management System
 
04:57
SEPTA's Sustainability Program is a framework for implementing new and innovative solutions to persistent problems. But advancing an agenda of economic prosperity, social responsibility, and environmental stewardship in an era of budgetary constraints and limited resources requires proactive planning and creative approaches for implementation. Recognizing this, a key component of SEPTA's Sustainability Program implementation strategy will focus on management systems - squeezing more out of less by making institutional processes more efficient. It is in this context that SEPTA applied for and was accepted to the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) 2011 Environmental & Sustainability Management System (ESMS) training and assistance program for public transportation agencies. FTA's training is designed to help agencies develop and implement ESMS using the 14001 standard of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The ISO 14001 Standard is a toolbox of management techniques to minimize environmental impacts through a method of continual improvement called "plan-do-check-act": Plan: Establish the objectives, programs & processes to deliver results in accordance with the environmental policy Do: Implement the programs & processes Check: Monitor and measure processes against policy, objectives, targets, and requirements, and report the results Act: Take actions to continually improve programmatic performance towards objectives & targets SEPTA's participation in the FTA's ESMS training and assistance program reflects its commitment to its sustainability program.

7 Most Important Skills for a Civil Engineer to Succeed  (updated) | Civil Engineering
 
05:48
Narrated by Jake Voorhees from the 1% Engineer society. Checkout his channel http://bit.ly/OnePercentEngineer Information credits : Tawfiq Bayo Adebiyi (Trainee Civil Engineer at Arcadis) Follow him on twitter ( https://twitter.com/@TawfiqAdebiyi ) You can read blog post here on this link https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/6-most-important-skills-civil-engineer-tawfiq-bayo-adebiyi Recommended Engineering Books http://amzn.to/2xnwjRg Music: www.bensound.com thumbnail image credits: freepik.com - Most Important skills for a Civil Engineer to succeed - Civil Engineers are professionals who designs, maintain and oversees a construction project like roads, bridges, dams, canals, residential and commercial buildings. The profession of Civil engineer is considered as one of the well paid and respected as they are major contributors to the society. They must possess a very broad skill set, from cost accounting to geology. Many civil engineers have jobs that require a very hands-on role in construction, while others may have positions more heavily weighted toward supervisory and administrative skills. We can therefore see how important it is for Civil Engineers to possess certain qualities and skills. Here we are providing the 7 most important skills that civil engineers should have in order succeed. 1. Technical Skills A good Civil Engineer should have a level of Mathematics and Physics that allows for the identification and solving of engineering problems. Lets put it this way, if a Structural Engineer wasn't able to accurately work out how much weight is being distributed throughout a bridge, anyone wouldn't dare to be driving anywhere near that bridge. Civil Engineers also need to be skilled in design techniques and working with maps, drawings and models, as well as CAD software. They need to be able to predict any possible future problems and find solutions for them. 2. Project Management When problems arise, it is common for people involved in the project on all levels to look to the engineer for guidance and resolution. It is important that a Civil Engineer is able to step up to the task and manage a diverse team of professionals whilst maintaining the confidence of clients. 3. Leadership Skills Civil engineers carry a great deal of responsibility as they are ultimately in charge of the entire project’s design and implementation. They must be able to lead a diverse team of professionals, including surveyors, construction managers, technicians, contractors, architects, urban planners, transportation engineers and others, as well as maintain the confidence of governmental planning authorities. The effectiveness of the civil engineer’s leadership skills may be a significant determining factor in keeping a project on time and on budget. 4. Communication Skills In Civil Engineering - perhaps more so than other Engineering fields - the ability to communicate effectively is a highly sought after skill. Whether dealing with Management or a client, Engineers need to be able to clearly communicate ideas and give direction leaving no ambiguity. They must also be able to listen and benefit from the ideas of others in the team. 5. Creativity It could be said broadly that the role of Civil Engineers is applying Engineering principles to develop solutions within the built environment. More often than not, this requires a certain level of creativity. Engineers need to be able to innovate and improve on solutions. From finding ways to reduce CO2 emissions or making a trampoline bridge, creativity is key. 6. Visualization The ability to imagine what something will look like when it’s finished and visualize how complex components will come together is one of the most important skills a civil engineer can have. Visualization skills must be flexible and dynamic in order to identify and resolve issues before they can become problems. Because there are so many component parts to large-scale projects, civil engineers must be able to envision how the interrelationships change when one or more individual aspects are changed. 7. Critical Thinking Civil Engineers often face complex problems and need to find efficient solutions for them. They need to be able to assess the pros and cons of all possible solutions, and they need to be decisive in order to choose the best one. Civil Engineers generally require a very broad skill set and these list is in no way exhaustive but these 7 were what we saw to be the most important skills for a Civil Engineer.

Environmental Policy and Communications - EMDV8007
 
03:23
http://programsandcourses.anu.edu.au/course/EMDV8007 “Environmental Communication is the planned and strategic use of communication processes to support effective policy-making and project implementation geared towards environmental sustainability.” (OECD) Environmental policy focuses on issues arising from human impact on the natural environment. This course will examine how public policy is developed and the role played by different forms of communication in the policy processes, with a particular focus on contentious environmental issues. Most of the examples used will have a significant environmental component but the themes of the course are also broadly relevant to the development of other types of policy in politically pluralist societies such as Australia and the United States. The course will use public policy and communications activities in those countries as the starting point but students from elsewhere will be encouraged to make comparisons with their home countries. The nature of public opinion, and how it is shaped, will be examined along with a look at the impact of public opinion in the policy process. We will also look rise of environmental consciousness and the concept of sustainability, now a cornerstone of much public policy. Media such as newspapers, televisions, radio and the web in its various forms, including social media, will be examined along with other forms of communications such as citizen activism, public participation, political campaigning, advertising and public relations. ===================== http://crawford.anu.edu.au/ ===================== Video produced by the Digital Learning Project http://asiapacific.anu.edu.au/digital-learning/

Globalization and the Environment
 
03:27
Intro Globalization is essential for solving environmental issues due to the fact that we all live on the same planet where our individual emissions impact everyone, the oceans are shared and not owned by any particular country, and the efforts towards solving environmental issues have shown a stronger impact if as many countries agree to work together as possible. Individual Emissions Impact Everyone We all live on the same planet, and everything an individual does, including their personal emissions affects everyone in the world. The reason that climate change globalization is so difficult is because some countries have a bigger impact on the earth than others, and those countries may feel like the regulations are targeted against their economy. The kyoto protocol is a good example of how easy it is to isolate oneself from an international agreement. This international agreement was set to place standards and restrictions for greenhouse gas emissions in each country. The U.S. received backlash from numerous nations after stating they are backing out of the agreement because they believed that this will give European industry an edge. Although the biggest CO2 emitter disagreed to sign the agreement, over 178 countries agreed to sign on, and countries like Japan and the EU willingly took the charge and played a key role in implementing the trade agreement to combat climate change. Unification is Key Saving our environment will be much more efficient if it is done together, rather than apart. There is strong evidence that supports how unification can get things done regarding the environment much faster and easier, just look at the ozone layer. CFCs (chloroflorocarbons) which were present in aerosols and hairsprays were severely depleting the ozone layer, causing significant problems in uv light reaching the surface. The whole world successfully came together, leading to the Montreal Protocol which banned the usage of CFCs in most countries. The ozone layer is not fully repaired, but we are seeing a significant impact simply due to us agreeing on improving the planet one way or another. Ocean Habitat Conservation (International Maritime Organization) As for our oceans, $375 billion is made globally each year from oceans alone. Oceans provide food, water, materials, and jobs to most countries. The majority of the world’s largest cities are located near the coast. Globalization makes it easy for these countries to transport goods back and forth by shipping. The US makes $32 billion every year by transporting goods across the ocean. Our economies are dependent on this money. However, more and more coral reefs are being destroyed due to this transportation and other effects of globalization. Overfishing, excess sewage, agricultural runoff, toxic pollutants, and climate change are quickly ruining the ocean resources that we have. Luckily, we have organizations like the International Maritime Organization to help limit the amount of shipping that goes on. This organization allows members of 172 countries to work together and decide the restrictions on oversea transportation. No single country owns all the oceans, so globalization helps to provide a plan for everyone to help protect the common waters. Conclusion All in all, the main issue facing globalization today is simply the fact that some countries want to maximize their economic prowess, but if we fail to come together to improve our planet, the price would exceed the amount of profit that country is sacrificing to agree to environmental regulations. Our ecosystems will continue to thrive, habitats and species can be saved, and the adverse conditions from climate change will be slowed, all of these scenarios are possible if globalization is promoted for dealing with issues that we face environmentally.
The Paris Climate Agreement Won't Change the Climate
 
05:38
The Paris Climate Agreement will cost at least $1 trillion per year, and climate activists say it will save the planet. The truth? It won't do anything for the planet, but it will make everyone poorer--except politicians and environmentalists. Bjorn Lomborg explains.

For Students: http://l.prageru.com/29SgPaX JOIN our Educators Network! http://l.prageru.com/2c8vsff Script: Much has been made of the Paris Climate Agreement signed by the leaders of 178 countries in 2016. French foreign minister Laurent Fabius, speaking for many, called it a "historic turning point." The head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Gina McCarthy, echoed the minister's remark when she testified before the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. The Paris Agreement was, she said, an "incredible achievement." But when pressed by committee members to explain exactly how much this treaty would reduce global temperatures, she would not – or could not – say. This combination of grand pronouncements and vague specifics is a good strategy for Paris Agreement fans to take. Because the agreement will cost a fortune, but do little to reduce global warming. Consider the Obama administration's signature climate policy, the Clean Power Plan. Using the same climate prediction model that the UN uses, I found that the power plan will accomplish almost nothing. Even if its cuts to carbon dioxide emissions are fully implemented – not just for the 14 years that the Paris Agreement lasts, but for the rest of the century – the Clean Power Plan would reduce the temperature increase in 2100 by just 0.023 degrees Fahrenheit. The President has made further, and grander, promises of future U.S. carbon cuts, but these are only vaguely outlined. In the unlikely event that all of these extra cuts also happen, and are adhered to throughout the rest of the century, the combined reduction in temperatures would be 0.057 degrees. To put it another way, if the U.S. delivers for the whole century on the President's very ambitious rhetoric, it would postpone global warming by about eight months at the end of the century. Now let's add in the rest of the world's Paris promises. If we generously assume that the promised carbon cuts for 2030 are not only met (which itself would be a U.N. first), but sustained, throughout the rest of the century, temperatures in 2100 would drop by 0.3 degrees – the equivalent of postponing warming by less than four years. Again, that's using the UN's own climate prediction model. But here's the biggest problem: These miniscule benefits do not come free; quite the contrary. The cost of the Paris climate pact is likely to run to 1 to 2 trillion dollars every year, based on estimates produced by the Stanford Energy Modeling Forum and the Asia Modeling Exercise. In other words, we will spend at least one hundred trillion dollars in order to reduce the temperature, by the end of the century, by a grand total of three tenths of one degree. Some Paris Agreement supporters defend it by claiming that its real impact on temperatures will be much more significant than the U.N. model predicts. But this requires mental gymnastics and heroic assumptions. For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/paris-climate-agreement-wont-change-climate

Introduction to new report on Integrating the environment in urban planning and management
 
03:52
A video introduction, featuring International Institute for the Environment and Development Senior Researcher David Dodman, produced for the World Urban Forum 7 to unveil the publication of a new report. The report focuses on Integrating the environment in urban planning and management: key principles and approaches for cities in the 21st century, and was written by Dodman, Gordon McGranahan and Barry Dalal-Clayton. Summary: Cities can use a range of principles and approaches to integrate the environment in urban planning and management. This report is intended to encourage and support urban decision-makers in this process. It starts with recognising that action taken in towns and cities is essential for addressing global environmental problems. It accepts that, with an increasing proportion of the world's population living in urban areas in low- and middle-income countries, these are important sites for engaging with the environment. The report describes the social and economic benefits that can be generated by addressing environmental challenges, and provides convincing evidence to support engagement with these issues.

Carl Sagan Keynote Speech at Emerging Issues Forum
 
01:05:14
Dr. Sagan's 2/9/1990 speech before the 5th Emerging Issues Forum at NCSU, broadcast live on NC Public TV. Introduction by Roy Park of Park Communications. Sagan spoke at the invitation of Jim Hunt, former NC Governor. Recorded by Dr. Woody Sugg on a home VCR. While a student, I referenced Dr. Sagan's speech here in a 1990 radio interview with Gregg Maryniak and Chris Faranetta of the Space Studies Institute (SSI) and Dr. George A. (Jay) Keyworth II, former Reagan science adviser, on the subject of space solar power (SSP). The Story: Princeton physicist Gerard K. O'Neill joined with sunsat inventor Dr. Peter Glaser and Raytheon engineer Bill Brown in the 1970s-1980s to work on solutions to projected massive 21st century energy requirements and biosphere preservation for a plan that would start up an ambitious off-Earth enterprise for America and partners. NASA and the Department of Energy released a joint study "Satellite Power System Concept Development and Evaluation Program Assessment Report" in 1980. NASA and DoE found a technical case for SSP but no financial case assuming materials launched 100% from the ground. SSP concepts have undergone technical improvements by independent teams. Propulsion and launch alternatives have multiplied as costs decline. PVs and robotics have improved. The discovery of water at the lunar poles aids the business case for sunsat manufacture using lunar materials, a rationale introduced by SSI, whose study in the mid-1980s found a 97% cost-savings by using the moon. At the D3 Innovation Summit Pitch Challenge on March 2, 2016 in Washington, DC, a Naval Research Laboratory proposal on SSP won awards in 4 categories. Theirs was one of 6 winners out of 500 "breakout ideas" submitted in response to the challenge issued by DoS, DoD, and USAID. The solar satellite idea originated with Peter Glaser of A.D. Little Corp. in 1968. The O'Neill-Glaser-Brown vision called for public/private partnerships under US leadership to expand industrial and economic activity on the High Frontier, including sunsat manufacture from lunar materials via lunar surface machines and free-space processing infrastructure. NEOs would be retrieved by the infrastructure for additional materials, meeting earthbound NEO defense requirements. Over a 50-year period, SSP implementation would ease reliance on diminishing ground resources and fission for base load electricity in participating nations, extend the life of coal, oil & gas, provide clean energy to developing nations, and deliver instant secure power to forward military operations and disaster zones. The activity over 5 decades would allay Dr. Sagan's concerns, here so eloquently expressed, over CO2 greenhouse warming and the problem of nuclear waste disposal. These high flying assets would be the business backbone of space settlement. Dr. O'Neill's rotating habitats in free space, built also from lunar materials and powered by the sun, would facilitate the growth of industry and species to a potential several times the capacity on the ground. SSP workers, their families, and support personnel would live in normal 1g environments in sunlit cylindrical real estate in Lagrangian orbits known to be stable. These busy hubs, or "islands", would be part "mill towns" for the workers, part farms, part business, science, industrial & professional parks, part university, and part sports/recreation and tourism destinations. Travel and commerce between facilities and the Earth would be a relatively low energy-cost affair. A political decision is needed. Darel Preble of the SSP Workshop at Georgia Tech proposes that Congress pass the Sunsat Act (http://www.sspi.gatech.edu/sunsat-how.pdf). Just as the Transcontinental Railroad Act and the Comsat Act opened the rail transportation and satellite communications industries, the Sunsat Act would create a public/private SunSat Corporation to oversee SSP development. A Presidential signature would permit permanent energy security for the US and partners. Preble projects that the $330 billion/year global comsat industry would be exceeded 100 times by the sunsat industry. A Kubrick-Clarke-like generation could follow, many of the early spaceborn growing up in 1g communities 60 degrees east and west of the moon in wealth produced by lunar-made SSP. A compendium of research and conference papers on the topics of solar power satellites, lunar machines, and manufacturing from in-space materials is housed at http://ssi.org, the website for the nonprofit Space Studies Institute founded in 1977 in Princeton by the late Gerard O'Neill. "...I would put it (SSP) amongst any list of serious contenders for new energy technologies." - Dr. George Keyworth II, former Reagan science advisor, 1990 interview "Our technology is capable of extraordinary new ventures in space, one of which Gerard O'Neill has described to you.... It is practical." - Carl Sagan, book blurb, The High Frontier (1989 edition) by G K O'Neill.

South Korea - China - Japan Meeting
 
02:03
Chinese Minister of Environmental Protection Li Ganjie on Friday called for closer cooperation between China, South Korea and Japan on the improvement of air quality. Li made the remarks during a press conference after the 19th Tripartite Environment Ministers Meeting between South Korea, China and Japan (TEMM) in Suwon, South Korea, attended by Li, his South Korean counterpart Kim Eun-kyung and his Japanese counterpart Masaharu Nakagawa. Li said improving air quality, a top priority among the three countries, is the first area of cooperation under the action plan on environmental cooperation for the 2015-2019 period, which was adopted in 2015. Li noted that the three countries have carried out substantial cooperation in recent years in tackling air pollution and sand storms, playing a positive role in improving air quality at home and in the region. He hoped the three countries would continue giving full play to their respective advantages, and share experiences on environmental protection on the basis of mutual respect and win-win cooperation. The environment ministers also discussed the latest regional environmental policies, environmental issues and implementation of the joint action plan. Li introduced China's environmental protection progress, stressing that China has taken the most robust and solid measures, and has achieved the fastest progress and best results in eco-civilization construction and ecological environment protection within the past five years. The South Korean and Japanese ministers also introduced their respective country's latest environmental policies and progress reports. The three sides exchanged views on global and regional environmental issues, such as the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the 15th Conference of Parties to the convention on Biological Diversity, as well as ecological and environmental protection cooperation under the Belt and Road Initiative. During the meeting, Li put forward a series of proposals for tackling global and regional environmental problems and boosting trilateral environmental cooperation. Li said the three countries should push forward the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and the development of a green Belt and Road. Efforts should be made to seek substantial achievements on the 15th Conference of Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity, said the Chinese minister. He added that the three countries should also strengthen the leading role of the three-way environment ministers' meeting and trilateral cooperation within the region. During the press conference, an award ceremony was held in honor of three individuals for their contribution in environmental protection.

JSGS Public Lecture: Implementing the Duty to Consult: Explaining Similarities and Differences in Provincial Approaches to Aboriginal Consultation Presented by: Dr. Martin Papillon, Associate Professor, School of Political Studies, University of Ottawa Provincial governments in Canada have responded to recent Supreme Court decisions on the constitutional duty to consult Aboriginal peoples with a series of policies outlining their interpretation of this new norm and procedures to implement it. While these policies vary significantly, broadly reflecting the specific economic, political and legal context of Aboriginal-state relations in each province, recent developments suggest a convergence both in the definition and in the implementation of the duty to consult across Canada. This presentation discussed possible explanations for this convergence and its implications for Aboriginal-provincial relations and for policy-making in the Canadian federation more broadly.
