Publications on HDGEC

The International Social Science Council (ISSC) published a monograph entitled Dynamics of Societal Learning about Global Environmental Change written by Robert M. Worcester and Samuel H. Barnes for the Working Group on Survey Research Data of the ISSC Standing Committee on the Human Dimensions of Global Environmen- tal Change. This report presents a preliminary inventory of public opinion surveys that may warrant further analysis in view of the concerns raised by HDGEC. Copies may be requested from the ISSC Secretariat, UNESCO House, 1 rue Miollis, 75015 Paris, France; phone (33-1) 45 68 25 58; fax (31-1) 43 06 87 98.

Young (Dartmouth College) and sponsored by the National Research Council, has released its report in the form of a book entitled Global Environmental Change: Understanding the Human Dimensions (Washington, DC.: National Academy Press, 1992, 308 pp.). Co- edited by Young, Paul C. Stern, and Daniel Druckman, the report offers a comprehensive overview of the human causes of global change, potential human responses to the global change, and the role that social science should be playing in global change research.

News from ESS Members

ESS founder and member Kenneth A. Dahlberg (Western Michigan University) has been awarded his university’s 1991 Distinguished Faculty Scholar Award. Congratulations, Ken! Ken has an NSF grant to study municipal food systems, including Knoxville, St. Paul, Syracuse, Philadelphia, Charleston (SC), and Kansas City. Besides seeking a better understanding of how such systems operate at the household, neighborhood, and municipal levels, he is exploring the policies and practices that local governments can pursue to improve their food systems.

News from IMEMO

The Institute of World Economy and International Relations of the USSR Academy of Sciences is involved in several projects to foster international cooperation on environmental problem. The following information is provided by Dr. Elena Nikitina of IMEMO, a member of the Executive Committee of ESS.

Dr. Raphael Vartanov of IMEMO took the lead in organizing EcoDevelopment, a nongovernmental international environmental association that promotes and coordinates multidisciplinary environmental activities of Soviet and foreign scholars in the natural and political sciences aimed at securing environmentally sustainable development. The emphasis of the association is on carrying out environmental research projects; conducting indepen- dent environmental impact assessments, comparative studies of environmental management, consultative services, encouraging environmental management education, and dissemination of results of scientific research. An international conference on the “Ecological Situation in the USSR and the Global Environment” is envisioned. Branches are being created at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts and the Fridtjof Nansen Institute in Oslo. Membership is open to any Soviet and foreign scholars as well as research centers. Dr. Vartanov’s permanent address is Profsoyuznaya St. 23, Moscow, 117418, USSR; tel 128-46-44; fax 128-37-01 or 310-70-27. He is on leave at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution during 1992.

IMEMO and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution are completing a joint project on “Environmental Security and the World Oceans: Analytical Approaches and Shared Solutions, which has been sup- ported by the MacArthur Foundation and Peace Research Institute of the USSR Academy of Sciences. Thirty scholars from a variety of fields have combined their thinking on the subject of environ- mental security as it may involve cooperative US/USSR actions on environmental problems such as depletion of North Pacific fisheries, the environment of the Arctic and Southern Oceans, land-based marine pollution, nuclear contamination of oceans, hazardous materials transport, global warming and sea level rise, and international law and protection of the marine environment. A publication is planned in both English and Russian.

The Section on Environment and Ocean Development of IMEMO recently entered into a joint statement with the Fridtjof Nansen Institute on inter-institutional research cooperation on subjects pertaining to environment and oceans, such as environmental management, polar studies, conservation of marine biological resources, and deep seabed mining. A conference on “Resource and Environmental Management in the North” is being planned.

Finally, IMEMO, the Global Change Program at the University of Michigan, and the Chinese Society for Environmental Science have entered into an agreement that envisages a series of inter- disciplinary seminars on Global Change to outline the potential for future international cooperation on this issue.

Editor’s Footnotes

Please keep sending me items for the newsletter, such as con- ferences, reports on projects, publications, and other profes- sional activities.

In November I travelled to Finland to teach a two-week course on the subject of The World Politics of Global Change and Sustainable Development for the International School of Social Sciences at Tampere University in Tampere. While in that part of the world, I visited Moscow for a presentation and research con- sultations at the Institute of World Economy and International Relations of the USSR Academy of Sciences.

This past summer I presented a paper entitled “Global Change and Environmental Security: National Policy Options and the Prisoner’s Dilemma” at the World Congress of the International Political Science Association in Buenos Aires. I am willing to supply copies to those who request them.
