ON THE WEB

The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) has released a new data and information access service focused on socioeconomic data related to the environment. See: http://socioeconomic.unep.net.

UNEP has launched a new European-wide environmental portal on the Internet at http://europe.unep.net or through http://www.unep.net as of today. One of the first group of environmental information portals available as part of the globally distributed UNEP.Net information network, the portal aims to provide on-line authoritative information on the environment throughout the pan-European geographic region. For more information, contact: Jaap van Woerden, GEO & Earthwatch Data Coordinator; UNEP/DEWA/GRID-Geneva. Tel +41.22.9178169 / 8294. Email woerden@grid.unep.ch.

“Children in the New Millennium: Environmental Impact on Health” is now available from UNEP at: http://www.unep.org/ceh, and includes useful features such as links to additional UN and external resources. For more information, or to order a paper copy of the book, please contact: Jim Sniffen, UNEP Information Officer, New York at sniffenj@un.org.

Parties to the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands have made the Ramsar Sites Database available over the Internet through SEDAC’s Ramsar Wetlands Data Gateway. SEDAC will continue working with the Ramsar Bureau and Wetlands International to ensure regular updates to the Gateway, so that users will be able to access current Ramsar site data integrated with other socioeconomic, environmental, and remote sensing data. The Ramsar Wetlands Data Gateway is available at: http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/ramsardg.

“What’s New” at the US Global Change Research Information Office (GCRIO) was updated in December 2002 at http://www.gcrio.org/whatnew.html>

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is moving into a new, expanded phase of its program to develop carbon sequestration projects, including studying the potential of injecting carbon dioxide emissions from power plants into underground aquifers. Carbon dioxide, from the burning of fossil fuels, contributes to global warming. (19KB PDF file). For information see Research on Permanent Storage of Carbon Dioxide Expanded”” at

“Down to Earth: Geographic Information for Sustainable Development in Africa,” U.S. National Research Council (NRC). This report reviews the utility of spatial data for sustainable development, drawing on experience in Africa and examining the potential for future use of remote sensing and Geographic Information Systems to support decision making in Africa. The full text of the report is available online at: http://www.nap.edu/catalog/10455.html.

The 2001 version of the LandScan dataset is now available from Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). LandScan provides global estimates of “ambient” population on a 30″ X 30″ latitude/longitude grid. Census counts at sub-national levels are apportioned to each grid cell based on likelihood coefficients derived from proximity to roads, slope, land cover, nighttime lights, and other factors. LandScan 2001 supercedes LandScan 2000, which, at the request of ORNL, SEDAC no longer disseminates. See: http://www.ornl.gov/gist/landscan/index.html.

SEDAC’s new interface for the Environmental Treaties and Resource Indicators (ENTRI) database and a new prototype SEDAC Data Viewer have been opened up for beta testing. These interfaces provide more flexible access to selected SEDAC datasets related to international environmental treaties and other topics. See: http://beta.sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/entri-dis/. SEDAC encourages uses to try out these new interfaces and to provide feedback.

SEDAC’s “Guide to Metadata.” provides information on the preparation of metadata that conforms with the U.S. Federal Geographic Data Committee’s Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (FGDC-STD-001-1998). Please visit the site at: http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/metadata.

SEDAC has a new set of disaggregated population and income projections derived from the scenarios developed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) for the Special Report on Emission Scenarios (SRES). These national-level estimates of population and Gross Domestic Product (GDP) density for 1990-2100 and gridded population and GDP estimates for 1990 and 2025 were developed under the guidance of the IPCC Task Group on Scenarios for Climate Impact Assessment (TGCIA). The data are accessible through the IPCC Socioeconomic Data Distribution Centre hosted by SEDAC. The site also contains a draft guidance paper and other supporting documentation. See: http://sres.ciesin.columbia.edu/tgcia/.

SEDAC has also released a new Thematic Guide on Social Science Applications of Remote Sensing. This guide provides an introduction to remote sensing for non-technical audiences and reviews key issues in the application of remote sensing techniques in social science research. The online guide provides examples of the application of remote sensing in six different social science fields and includes an extensive research bibliography and a listing of major satellite systems and sensors. See: http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu:9080/tg/guide_main.jsp.

Earth Institute at Columbia University has significantly updated its website. The site now includes information on the organization of the centers comprising the Earth Institute into six main “clusters.” See: http://www.earth.columbia.edu/. Also, “Inside the Earth Institute” http://www.earthinstitute.columbia.edu/e-newsletter/ provides monthly updates on activities and research.

The Environmental Change and Security Project (ECSP), part of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, has launched an initiative to promote new thinking about global water problems. Funded by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, ECSP’s Navigating Peace: Forging New Water Partnerships will bring together diverse sets of individuals to generate policy alternatives in three areas: (1) The balance between water as an economic and a social good, so that it can be provided equitably, efficiently, and universally; (2) Conflict, conflict potential, and cooperative models over shared water resources; and (3) How lessons from water-conflict resolution could build dialogue and cooperation between the US and China–their governments as well as nongovernmental organizations. Navigating Peace will generate new water knowledge networks and a dynamic set of policy-relevant discussions and publications that move beyond rehashing stale debates to reframe and advance dialogue and action on critical water issues. For more information on Navigating Peace, please visit ECSP’s Web site at www.wilsoncenter.org/ecsp.

“International Conference on the Future Of The Book.” Cairns, Australia, 22-24 April 2003. As an information architecture, the book is now 550 years old – if one dates its history from Gutenberg’s invention. Or much older if one dates it from the Chinese invention of moveable type, or the codex, or even the beginning of writing on transportable media. But what is the book’s future, as a creature of and conduit for human invention? Do the new media (the Internet, multimedia texts and new delivery formats) represent a threat or an opportunity? Papers submitted for the conference proceedings will be fully peer-refereed and published in print and electronic formats. If you are unable to attend the conference, virtual registrations are also available allowing access to the electronic versions of the conference proceedings, as well as virtual presentations which mean that your paper can be included in the refereeing process and published with the conference proceedings.

Full details of the conference, including an online call for papers form, are to be found at the conference website at http://www.Book-Conference.com.

Call for papers for a special issue on Business and Environmental Protection by Human Ecology Review. Guest editors are Jorge Rivera and Magali Delmas. Deadline for submissions is August 31, 2003. Human Ecology Review is a refereed journal published twice a year by the Society for Human Ecology. The Journal publishes peer-reviewed research and theory on the interaction between humans and the environment and other links between culture and nature. Overview: The social science literature is paying increased attention to the relationship between businesses and the natural environment. Traditionally, it has been argued that firms should strive to preempt environmental regulations or bear the cost of complying with mandatory environmental standards. During the last decade, however, a different view of the businesses and environment relationship has emerged. This new paradigm argues that competitiveness and proactive environmental management strategies are mutually reinforcing. Nevertheless, the theoretical understanding and empirical evidence supporting this perspective on business and the environment is still limited. Research topics and questions: This special issue seeks to promote research that improves the understanding of the interaction between businesses and the natural environment across the world. We welcome theoretical and empirical studies from all social sciences. Papers involving innovative methodologies and international settings are encouraged. Areas of interest include but are not limited to: voluntary environmental management systems including ISO 14001; voluntary agreements between firms and regulatory agencies; eco-labeling; business partnerships with NGOs; corporate environmental management in developing countries; corporate green behavior and environmental policy instruments; corporate green behavior and international environmental agreements; trade and the environment; corporate green behavior and managerial decision-making; environmental performance and corporate performance; industrial ecology; supply chain management and the environment. All articles will be peer-reviewed in a double blind process. Please specify in your cover letter that your article is being submitted to this special issue. Four copies of the manuscript must be submitted for review to Linda Kalof; Editor, Human Ecology Review; Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Mail Stop 3G5; George Mason University; Fairfax, VA 22030; U.S.A. Additionally, authors must submit a Word for Windows electronic copy of their manuscript in a labeled 3 ½ inch diskette and by email to HEReview@gmu.edu. Further instructions for submission, presentation, and format of references, tables, and graphs, can be found at the Human Ecology Review website: www.humanecologyreview.org.
