Climate change policy : facts, issues and analyses by C. J Jepma( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspired by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's Second Assessment Report, Jepma and Munasinghe set out to create a concise, practical, and compelling approach to climate change issues. In Climate Change Policy: Facts, Issues, and Analyses, they deftly explain the implications of global warming and the risks involved in attempting to mitigate climate change. They look at how and where to initiate action, and what sort of organization is needed to implement the changes. This book represents a much-needed synopsis of climate change and its real impact on society. It will be an essential text for climate change researchers, policy analysis, university students studying the environment, and anyone else with an interest in climate change issues
Primer on climate change and sustainable development : facts, policy analysis and applications by Mohan Munasinghe( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Primer on Climate Change and Sustainable Development gives an up-to-date, comprehensive and accessible overview of the links between climate change and sustainable development. Building on the main findings of the last series of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessment reports, in which both authors were involved, the book summarizes the latest research linking climate change and sustainable development." "This book will be compulsory reading for those policy-makers, scientists, students and engaged citizens around the world who have an interest in any aspect of climate change and sustainable development."--Jacket
Electricity pricing : theory and case studies by Mohan Munasinghe( Book )

13 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rapidly increasing cost of electric power in recent years has brought about a growing awareness of the importance of pricing policies in maximizing the net economic benefits of consumption and avoiding waste. Although the theoretical principles governing optimal pricing strategies have long been understood, their practical application to the energy sector in general, and to electric power in particular, has not been seriously pursued until recently. Increasing unit costs, however, have provided the stimulus for a change in approach, and there is now a good deal of evidence that marginal cost pricing is becoming accepted as an important criterion that should be considered in determining electric power tariffs. The book contains a summary of the economic principles underlying marginal cost pricing for electric power, and emphasizes the importance of the adjustments that need to be made to the strict long-run marginal costs (LRMC) to reflect the various economic, social, and engineering objectives and constraints that are actually faced by policymakers in the energy sector. The book also consists of case studies that follow a two-stage procedure in which the LRMC of electric power is used to weigh the costs and benefits of other policy objectives that might be addressed through the medium of power pricing. LRMC is therefore treated largely as a benchmark by which other economic and social objectives may be consciously judged
The economics of power system reliability and planning : theory and case study by Mohan Munasinghe( Book )

12 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The greening of economic policy reform by Jeremy J Warford( Book )

20 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, in two volumes, addresses environmental impacts stemming from economy-wide policy reforms, and seeks to clarify the nature of the economic, physical, institutional, and cultural aspects of their relationship. Volume 1 summarizes the case studies and synthesizes their key principles. Volume 2 explores the case studies in full length. They reflect a wide range of country situations and environmental problems. Pollution issues are addressed, such as air quality and energy use in Poland and Sri Lanka, while a variety of natural resource-related issues are covered in the other studies: deforestation and land degradation in Costa Rica; migration and deforestation in the Philippines; agricultural land degradation due to overgrazing in Tunisia, fertility losses due to extension of cultivation areas in Ghana; water resource depletion in Morocco; and wildlife management in Zimbabwe. The case studies also use a variety of analytical methods to illustrate the different approaches to identifying the environmental implications of economy-wide reforms. These methods range from tracing the links between economic incentives and resource use through direct observation, to relying on more complex economic modeling of policies and their environmental effects. In all the studies, however, the analytical approach uniformly requires identifying key environmental concerns and relating them to the agenda of priority sectoral and macroeconomic reforms
Energy policy analysis and modeling by Mohan Munasinghe( Book )

20 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Energy plays a vital role in economic and social development. The analysis of energy issues and policy options is therefore a vital area of study. This book presents a hierarchical modelling scheme intended to support energy planning and policy analysis in developing countries. The authors introduce the concept of 'Integrated National energy Planning' (INEP), and examine the spreadsheet models, optimization models, and linear planning models which energy planners use. Environmental considerations are also introduced into the analysis. Techniques are then applied to two important energy subsectors, electricity and fuelwood, before problems of integration and policy implementation are discussed. Throughout the book, the authors examine actual practice in developing countries. Illustrative case material is drawn from Egypt, West Africa, Sudan, Pakistan, Colombia, India, Sri Lanka and Morocco. This book will be of interest to students and practitioners of energy planning, and to those concerned with the wider development implications of energy policy
