Greening Aid? Understanding the Environmental Impact of Development Assistance

"Greening Aid? Understanding the Environmental Impact of Development Assistance"

An International Studies Public Forum at UC Irvine on Thursday, February 4, 2010 with with Michael J. Tierney, College of William and Mary. Michael J. Tierney is the Hylton Associate Professor of Government and the Director of the International Relations Program at the College of William and Mary. He received his B.A. in government from William and Mary in 1987 and Ph.D. from U.C. San Diego in 2003.

1.4 Changing environmental attitudes
Global warming: are we responsible? Is our environmental impact damaging the planet? This unit examines the use of ozone depleting technology, the impact of fossil fuel use and explores how the development of technology can influence the direction of a society. From the Industrial Revolution to the present day find out how we have changed the planet.

1 Safety, health and environmental management – a risky business!
Life is full of risk. In this unit ‘risk’ describes the probability and consequences of harm or, at worst, disaster. Risk management involves many stakeholders and integrated management systems help to ensure that safety, quality, environmental and business risks are all managed correctly. This unit also looks at emergency preparedness, that is, the management of emergencies and disasters.

1.3 Environmental factors
The I-35W bridge collapse in Minneapolis in August 2007, resulting in at least 13 deaths, illustrates the importance of structural integrity. This unit looks at the investigation that followed the collapse of the Silver Bridge over the Ohio River in 1967 which demonstrates how the study of safe design and the assessment of components and structures under load is of increasing importance in engineering design.

2.3 Environmental regulation of breeding
The extreme challenges of life in the polar regions require the animals who make their habitat there to make many adaptations. This unit explores the polar climate and how animals like reindeer, polar bears, penguins, sea life and even humans manage to survive there. It looks at the adaptations to physiological proceses, the environmental effects on diet, activity and fecundity, and contrasts the strategies of aquatic and land-based animals in surviving in this extreme habitat. This unit builds

4 Environmental factors and organisations: review
The interactions of business with the non-commercial enviromnent are under increasing scrutiny. This unit looks at the relationships between business and social and ecological environments, often referred to under the umbrella term of Corporate Social Responsibility. The unit examines efforts to reconcile what often look to be competing demands by moving towards a more ethical environment.

4.2 Environmental and labour standards
Free trade or fair trade? This unit will help you to analyse the relationship that exists between developed and developing countries under the World Trade Organization regime of Development Round negotiations. The current world trade regime has a very mixed record in promoting growth and reducing poverty.

2.6 Environmental explanations of dyslexia?
Dyslexia is a condition affecting literacy skills. This unit analyses how our image of normality affects the way we as a society define such conditions. You will learn how important it is to integrate the different psychological accounts of dyslexia in order to provide a full explanation of potential causes and strategies for remediation.

Small sand volume barrier islands: Environmental processes and development risks
This Carolina Environmental Diversity Explorations "virtual field trip" explores the nature and structure of barrier islands with small sand volume — only a few small dunes and no sandy ridges between the beach and the salt marsh. Built structures on these islands are highly susceptible to damage from hurricanes. This trip provides high-resolution photographs of two such islands, Masonboro (which has not been developed) and Topsail (which has been developed). Its companion field trip, Large Sa

Environmental Decision Making
Using the Extend 'connect-the-components' visual programming, students can model and simulate ecosystems including social and economic forces as well as study parameter variations to develop an understanding of ecosystem function and productivity. By making 'what if...' changes in the model, the effects of various proposed decisions about the environment can then be shown. EDM includes three ecological systems: Ponds, Grasslands, and Logging. Students can predict results of changes in the mode
