    The Government of Georgia is considering
    options for reducing fossil fuel imports in favor of
    introducing large scale use of domestic energy sources for
    public and private transportation. However, this must be
    considered within the overall context of green
    transportation-which will generate benefits well beyond the
    substitution of fossil fuels with domestic energy sources.
    The concept of green transportation has emerged in response

    This paper proposes an alternative
    approach to addressing the complex problems of climate
    change caused by greenhouse gas emissions. The author, who
    won the 2009 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, argues that
    single policies adopted only at a global scale are unlikely
    to generate sufficient trust among citizens and firms so
    that collective action can take place in a comprehensive and
    transparent manner that will effectively reduce global

    in these ecosystems can easily result in widespread and severe land degradation and thus desertification.
    Combined with global issues such as climate change, economic disparities, migration, and competing claims
    on land, this often leads to a vicious cycle of aridity, land degradation, and productivity loss. In addition to
    the harsh environmental conditions limiting land productivity, the socio-economic situation in drylands can
    pose challenges as well, given that these regions are often characterised by remoteness, marginality, lowproductivity

    This publication reviews the historical and current literature on land degradation in Morocco and
    presents the results of a case study in the western part of the country. It is intended as a reflection on
    the baseline causes for land degradation, so contributing to the development of enabling agricultural
    policies and the associated institutional dynamics that are needed to overcome degradation problems.
    This report identifies crucial policy inconsistencies and dysfunctions that were, so far, ineffective in

    Besides India, there are a few other countries like Mexico, Spain, Pakistan, Bangladesh and China which also make intensive use of groundwater. This highlight reviews groundwater institutions and policies in these countries, with a special focus on the interlinkages between energy and groundwater. It finds that while there are useful lessons from international experience, none of the other countries offer unmetered electricity to farmers as India does. It is this lack of energy accounting and resistance to metering that is at the heart of the invidious energy-irrigation nexus in India.

    This study reviews regulatory
    instruments designed to reduce environmental externalities
    from the transport sector. The study finds that the main
    regulatory instruments used in practice are fuel economy
    standards, vehicle emission standards, and fuel quality
    standards. Although industrialized countries have introduced
    all three standards with strong enforcement mechanisms, most
    developing countries have yet to introduce fuel economy

    This paper examines the distribution of
    climate change impacts across the 16 agro-ecological zones
    in Africa using data from the Food and Agriculture
    Organization combined with economic survey data from a
    Global Environment Facility/World Bank project. Net revenue
    per hectare of cropland is regressed on a set of climate,
    soil, and socio-economic variables using different
    econometric specifications "with" and

    This study examines the impact of
    climate change on cropland in Africa. It is based on a
    survey of more than 9,000 farmers in 11 countries: Burkina
    Faso, Cameroon, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Niger,
    Senegal, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. The study uses
    a Ricardian cross-sectional approach in which net revenue is
    regressed on climate, water flow, soil, and economic
    variables. The results show that net revenues fall as
