International Cooperation for Green Growth

The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) is dedicated to pioneering and diffusing a new model of economic growth, known as "green growth," that simultaneously targets key aspects of economic performance, such as poverty reduction, job creation and social inclusion, and those of environmental substantiality, such as mitigation of climate change and biodiversity loss and security of access to clean energy and water.

Green Energy System

Ulsan Technopark developed for driving the electric bicycle, battery quick charger and wind power system. Its technology is applied the product in response to the whole world paying attention to green energy industry.

We developed for driving the electric bicycle electric bicycle battery quick charge technology that is developed and applied the product. Existing battery charging time is eight to ten hours, but if you use rapid charger about 3 hours to full capacity and can travel 50km, 1 hour charge will be approximately 30km ride.

Adopting Green Practices in Response to Oil Spills in 3 Regions

Catastrophic oil spills from offshore drilling, tankers or other ships produce some of the most dramatic and tragic environmental disasters that can impact local ecosystems and livelihoods. Because public policies in many countries do not demand accountability from responsible stakeholders to provide swift and concerted cleanup after oil spills, damage beyond the coping capacity of impacted local ecosystems can result in long-term socioeconomic and environmental damage to coastal areas.

Energy, Resource Competition and Resilient Ecosystems

In the coming decades the world will face tough challenges: rising demand for energy, water, and food, tightening energy supplies, growing impact of climate change, and continued loss of biodiversity. Awareness is growing that these issues are interlinked and that single-issue solutions are not sustainable.
A lot of work has been done on understanding the linkages between two systems, but little is known on the nexus between the three of them.

Jeju Smart Grid Test-bed

A smart grid, converting its electricity network, will greatly contribute to energy conservation as well as the creation of jobs and new revenue in the future.
A smart grid delivers electricity from suppliers to consumers using digital technology, enabling the devices to communicate with the utility firms, which could save energy, reduce costs and increase reliability.

A Systems Approach Towards Energy, Food and Environmental Security: the Biochar Story

The quality of life for present and future generations depends on the development and adoption of new research paradigms that integrate the physical, biological and social sciences. Such integrative research is required to provide the new insights and fundamental knowledge needed to address the wide range of issues associated with ecosystems and their relationship to human health and well-being.

Limiting biodiversity impacts from biofuels through land use mapping and certification schemes

Biofuel production is a major and increasing threat to many ecosystems of high conservation importance. To reduce such impacts sustainability accreditation schemes have been developed, which can be used to show compliance with mandatory sustainability criteria, such as those included in the EU´s Renewable Energy Directive.

A Proposal for Management for Secondary Environmental Damages by Natural Disasters

On March 11, 2011, the magnitude 9.0 Tohoku earthquake occurred off the coast of Japan. It was the most powerful earthquake to ever impact Japan and one of the five most powerful earthquakes recorded since records began in 1900.

In addition to loss of life and destruction of infrastructure, the earthquake and subsequent tsunami also caused significant damage at the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant (Fukushima).

Wiser discussion about ethical and responsible engagement with the private sector to promote change (CEESP official session)

This workshop will focus on the implementation of IUCN's Business Engagement Strategy in the context of IUCN's One Programme Charter and the Commission on the Environmental, Economic, and Social Policy's (CEESP) Mandate priority "Enhanced capacity of civil society, governments and the private sector to ensure corporate social and environmental accountability and reduce the negative impact of industries on climate, bio-cultural diversity and food security."
