Conservation of marine biological resources

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 28 gennaio 2018

corte di giustizia europeaBruxelles. The Commission has decided to issue a reasoned opinion to Portugal on account of non-respect of the exclusive internal and external EU’s competence for the conservation of marine biological resources.
The EU has an exclusive competence in the area of the conservation of marine biological resources under the common fisheries policy (Article 3 of Treaty on the Functioning of the EU, TFEU). The powers assigned to the EU on the internal level also give the EU exclusive competence to enter into international undertakings with other States and/or international organisations for the purposes of conserving marine biological resources. The demarches undertaken by Portugal towards the North East Atlantic Fisheries Commission (NEAFC) and the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) are in breach of the exclusive competence of the EU. They have been undertaken in the context of an already on-going process at NEAFC, initiated with the full support of the EU, which aims to prevent significant impacts of bottom fishing activities on vulnerable marine ecosystems. The Commission is of the opinion that such an approach breaches EU law. If Portugal does not reply satisfactorily within two months, the Commission may refer the matter to the Court of Justice of the EU.

Energy Resources conferma la sua presenza in Albania siglando un contratto d’appalto con la società E.R.A. Milot shpk

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 6 aprile 2015

TiranaL’appalto per la realizzazione di un impianto eolico da 36 MegaWatt è stato stipulato a seguito dello sviluppo portato avanti dalla società di diritto albanese E.R.A. Milot shpk che già dal 2012 ha avviato il monitoraggio dei dati vento attraverso l’installazione di torri anemometriche raccogliendo risultati eccellenti rispetto alle previsioni di generazione di energia elettrica da fonte eolica. Tale attività ha visto la collaborazione con l’Università Politecnica delle Marche attraverso la stipula di una convenzione con il dipartimento di ingegneria industriale e scienze matematiche (www.west-lab.it) per l’analisi dei dati del vento e la certificazione degli stessi. La consolidata presenza sul territorio albanese, la grande ventosità, l’estrema conoscenza del mercato e la grande professionalità che ha contraddistinto lo sviluppo e la progettazione, rendono il progetto eolico E.R.A. Milot il primo progetto eolico realizzabile su territorio albanese. Il progetto per la creazione del parco eolico da 36 MegaWatt è in attesa di ricevere a giorni l’autorizzazione definitiva da parte del Consiglio dei Ministri del governo albanese e fino ad ora ha ottenuto le autorizzazioni preliminari e i permessi ambientali oltre che il parere positivo, da parte dell’ente preposto, per l’allaccio dell’impianto alla rete elettrica. Inoltre sono stati già contrattualizzati tutti i terreni dove saranno installate le turbine eoliche e la sottostazione per la connessione alla rete albanese.
Il parco eolico, il cui valore di EPC per Energy Resources è di 37,8 milioni di euro, produrrà oltre 100 milioni di kWh all’anno di energia pulita che verrà immessa nella rete elettrica nazionale albanese. L’obiettivo è quello di avviare i lavori di realizzazione dell’impianto per la seconda metà del 2016 compatibilmente con gli accordi che si raggiungeranno in sede di stipula del PPA.
Energy Resources e Energie Rinnovabili Albania shpk sono in fase di contrattualizzazione di nuovi progetti per lo sfruttamento delle energie rinnovabili, con forte attenzione anche verso il solare, dato il grande interesse da parte dei paesi dei Balcani nell’attuare un modello di sviluppo ed uno swap energetico che risponda alle direttive europee 2030 per il clima e guardando con particolare attenzione alle aziende attive sui propri territori che abbiano rapporti consolidati con EPC italiani, università e poli di ricerca tecnica e scientifica.

A path for financing smart economic development

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 14 maggio 2009

The Commission on Climate Change and Development reported on its progress at the United Nations in New York and will also present its findings at the Swedish Embassy in Washington D.C. The Commission is addressing climate change adaptation and its links with disaster risk reduction. Since its launch by the Swedish government in late 2007, the group has met with governments and citizens struggling with the effects of climate change in Cambodia, Mali, and Bolivia. It will issue policy recommendations on how to strengthen resilience of vulnerable communities and countries, establish appropriate institutional and financial architecture for adaptation, and mobilize new financial resources.Developing countries are particularly exposed to the impacts of droughts, floods and wind storms as well as longer term changes in ecosystems. International negotiations have focused on reducing greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere – with little success. Although all efforts must continue to reach agreement on implementing GHG limits, this work cannot blind governments to the need to begin to adapt to changing climate systems right now.One of the many recommendations within the Commission’s Progress Report is that funding for adaptation must go far beyond current official development assistance and that all donors honor their commitments of 0.7 percent of gross domestic product. The recent Bangladesh Adaptation Strategy for responding to natural disasters sets an interesting example.The Commission determined that knowledge of local impacts is still largely in the form of hypotheses and scenarios. While greenhouse gas reductions are measurable, it is more difficult to determine the success of adaptation and requires much more cooperation between institutions in different fields. These institutions can no longer be reactionary, as was the case after the food and financial crises of 2008. Also, existing institutions must be made as effective as possible rather than adding to the already proliferating array of institutions.The members of the Commission represent international and regional organizations as well as research, civil society and the private sector. Members participate in their personal capacities and include: Carlsson (Sweden); Angela Cropper (Trinidad and Tobago), deputy executive director for the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP); Mohamed El-Ashry (Egypt), senior fellow, UN Foundation; Sun Honglie (China), professor and head of the China Climate Change Expert Committee at the Chinese Academy of Sciences; Nanna Hvidt (Denmark), director of the Danish Institute for International Studies; Ian Johnson (UK), chairman of IDEAcarbon; Lash (USA); Wangari Maathai (Kenya), professor and founder of the Green Belt Movement; Ivo Menzinger (Switzerland), Managing Director at Swiss Re; Sunita Narain (India), director of the Centre for Science and Environment; Youba Sokona (Mali), executive secretary of the Sahara and Sahel Observatory (OSS); Bernard Petit (France), deputy director-general, Directorate-General for Development, European Commission; Margareta Wahlström (Sweden); UN assistant secretary-general for Disaster Risk Reduction and the secretary general’s special representative.

New report

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 13 marzo 2009

A new report published this week underlines the power of international higher education partnerships, particularly in times of economic downturn and increasing competition in higher education. The report – published by the American Council on Education (ACE) – is based on the outcomes of last years 11th Transatlantic Dialogue meeting organised by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC), ACE, and EUA which brought together university leaders from North America and Europe.The report concludes that partnerships between institutions are an important tool for higher education leaders to be “creative and adaptive in an environment where expectations are increasing and resources decreasing”. In this environment, the report notes, “going it alone may not be useful as a dominant strategy”.Underlining that institutions are increasingly recognising the need to partner in a variety of ways, the report explores five key issues: the motivation to initiate and maintain partnerships; the economics of cooperation; conflicts inherent in cooperation; the role of government; and issues related to the special case of partnerships with the private sector.The report provides specific hands-on advice on how to develop, negotiate and implement joint ventures with other HE institutions, governments and private companies, outlining the leadership qualities and institutional characteristics that are vital to the establishment and maintenance of successful partnerships.
