Climate Change: India policies and perspectives
India is the world's fifth largest emitter of CO2, after China, the USA, the EU and Russia. But in relative terms, India is a low carbon economy, with per capita emissions about a quarter of the global average. In spite of projected growth in emissions, these are likely to remain below the developed country average. India is also one of the countries most exposed to the projected impacts of climate change, particularly on food production, water availability and coastal cities. Already 2.6% of GD

This is a seminar about the ways that urban design contributes to the distribution of political power and resources in cities. "Design," in this view, is not some value-neutral aesthetic applied to efforts at urban development but is, instead, an integral part of the motives driving that development. The class investigates the nature of the relations between built form and political purposes through close examination of a wide variety of situations where public and private sector desig
George Westerman is a Research Scientist in MIT Sloan’s Center for Information Systems Research (CISR). In this video, he discusses the following key concepts in IT risk management: how IT managers can improve alignment and understanding, both in IT and the business, by discussing IT risk considerations in terms of key enterprise risks; how organizations build effective IT risk management capability through the disciplines of foundation, the risk governance process, and risk aware culture; and

Over the next few years, we have a real chance to set a path towards a low-carbon future. It is the only realistic future for growth and for overcoming world poverty. The global economic downturn is an opportunity to invest in green technology while costs are lower. Nick Stern is IG Patel Professor of Economics and Government at LSE and chairman of LSE's new Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment.
This presentation provides an overview of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis' (IIASA) accomplishments and its new strategy, focussing on policy relevant research on three global problem areas: food and water; energy and climate change; and poverty and equity. Detlof von Winterfeldt is director of IIASA and centennial professor of operational research at LSE.
Global warming will fundamentally alter the political economy of cities. A large number of cities will be in the front line of the most massive onslaughts of these changes. What do engineers and architects already know about how we can adjust our built environments? And how can ecological economists help to take us beyond the Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change? Saskia Sassen is Centennial Professor at LSE and Professor, Committee on Global Thought at Columbia University. Her latest
The list of challenges facing the world is proliferating rapidly from climate change to nuclear proliferation and nobody seems to have much of a grip on what is going on. In this public dialogue hosted by Global Policy, a new innovative and interdisciplinary journal, Chris Patten and Professor David Held will discuss what we know in each of these areas and how progress can be made.

Honesty is being trustworthy and truthful. This series is about character building. This video's main characters are two dogs Smuggles and Tunder. Smuggles realizes that his dog bone pile was getting smaller and smaller and wonders what's happening to his bones. Elementary students will enjoy watching this cute video as they learn about the importance of being honest. This would be an excellent resource for a teachable moment and would work well in conjunction with a unit on character education
