Fresh Air in Buenos Aires?
There are many concerns that should be addressed while our common climate is high on the global agenda in the first two weeks of November, at the 4th Conference Of the Parties to the Climate Convention (COP4). One overriding concern is that man-made CO2 emissions continue to increase year by year, despite nearly a decade of global climate-change discussions.

Media, Environment, and Citizens
The first event in an intended five-year co-operation program on media, environment, and citizens, took place this June, in Denmark. The program was initiated by INFORSE as a follow-up to UNESCO’s 5th Conference on Adult Education, which was held in Hamburg in 1997.

Sustainable Energy to Combat Desertification
January 18-22, 1999 is the date for the next INFORSE Coordinators' Meeting. It will be organised as an e-mail conference, following the decision of the 1997 meeting of only having coordinators meet in person every second year.

CSD9 Discussions Started
Three years before the UN Commission for Sustainable Development will have sustainable energy on its agenda at its ninth session (CSD9) in 2001, the preparations have already started. At the invitation of Austria, experts discussed the potential agenda for CSD9 at a meeting in Vienna in June. Based on experiences from INFORSE, the Danish Forum for Energy and Development presented a strategy for promoting sustainable energy via local communities. It stated that a local community approach must be an important part of multilateral programs for sustainable energy, including a global capacity-building program for local communities. The ability to establish a partnership with local stakeholders, including local NGOs and decision-makers, is a key to success in promoting and implementing renewable and sustainable energy. INFORSE will continue to follow the preparations for CSD9 and will strive to have INFORSE member organisations present at all major events.

INFORSE Strengthens Links to United Nations
At its 1998 substantive session, the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) has granted INFORSE special consultative status. This enables INFORSE to designate official representatives to the United Nations Headquarters in New York, as well as to the UN offices in Geneva and Vienna. In addition, INFORSE and its member organisations can be accredited for a number of UN meetings and conferences, submit written statements on areas in which INFORSE has special competence, and, in general, interact with a wide range of UN organisations. INFORSE already co-operates with a wide range of UN organisations, such as UNDP and UNESCO, but so far mainly on an ad-hoc basis. The new consultative status will strengthen INFORSE’s ability to influence the global agenda for sustainable energy, as well as to convey the experience and vision of local communities to the global level

Wind Energy in China: Institutional Barriers
China has a huge potential to become a dynamic nation in wind energy development, if institutional barriers are reduced. To realize this expectation, vigorous policy measures at the national and regional levels need to be established and readjusted.

Gaviotas - a Miracle
As a journalist who has covered environmental disasters from Chernobyl to Antarctica’s ozone hole, the most hopeful sign I’ve seen that humans can live sanely and sustainably is a village in one of the most unlikely places: Colombia, a country whose name makes most people think of either cocaine, coffee, or civil war. Yet as Paolo Lugari, the Colombian founder of the village of Gaviotas, told me: “They always put social experiments in the easiest, most fertile places. We wanted the hardest place. If we could do it there, we could do it anywhere.”
