Shaping Subnational Policies in the Transport, Energy, and Spatial Planning Sectors
How can subnational governments best integrate climate change considerations across policy areas? Which factors contribute to successful integration?

With a specific focus on transport, spatial planning policies, and energy and water in selected cases located at the border of the Alpine region between Italy and Austria, this volume shows that coordination (vertical and horizontal), public participation and information, leadership, and dedicated funding play fundamental and interlinked roles in climate change policy integration.

Abstract

This article is about climate liability and the stimulation of negative emissions through nature restoration. Such a measure can contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, but can also lead to a restoration of biodiversity and of ecosystem services. In order to finance measures aimed at achieving natural negative emissions, the European Commission is considering introducing a system of carbon credits as part of the ‘Fit for 55’ program. This contribution investigates the advantages and disadvantages thereof and wonders about the nature and extent of the liability risks if, for example, nature is destroyed that is financed with carbon credits and which results in the release of stored co2. In that respect, attention is given to the Environmental Liability Directive. If the stimulation of natural negative emissions is also aimed at restoring biodiversity, in the event of a loss of nature, merely recouping the market price of a ‘carbon credit’ is insufficient to compensate the public for the damage done.

Climate change is forcing us to consider the right of people to leave their disappearing homelands, and the shape this right should take. Climate Change, Disasters and People on the Move proposes international protection as a solution with three pillars: granting protection against return to the country of origin (non-refoulement); preventing future displacement; and facilitating safe, orderly, and regular migration in the context of disasters and climate change. Dr. Aylin Yildiz Noorda uses the theories of common concern of humankind and community interests to operationalise her proposal, providing a blueprint for future claims.
