Climate Change Studio | COP 16 / CMP 6
Interview with Cameron Ironside of International Hydropower Association

Hydro’s role in mitigation is well known, as a renewable energy source itself, and as an enabler for other renewable energies, and renewable energy systems. However, hydro’s role in adaptation is only now becoming clear. A key adaptation question is how to manage water, either too much or too little of it. Hydro has a vital role to play in both scenarios.

Interview with Dr. Alison Cooke, CEng FIMechE, Research Manager, University Of Cambridge and Dr. Brian Vad Mathiesen

How should we meet, on the one hand, global energy demands and yet still limit the global temperature rise to within 2°c?
Future Climate is an international engineering project which so far represents approaching half million engineers from 10 countries. We provide data to enable national energy plans to be developed.

Climate Change Studio | COP 16 / CMP 6
Interview with Chu Lei of Centre for Climate Change and Environmental Studies

The whole world focuses mostly on energy, industry & transportation, yet if we look at water, land, forest, ocean, food & ecosystem, livestock industry damages 33% to 70% of these human survival dependent environmental cycling elements and is the mother cause of all causes. Changing diet can recover forest, land and ocean’s CO2 sequestration ability in an immediate term which resolves the present problems and thus be the foundation for long term development of green energy and technology. Real successes to share with governments & civic society for implementation.



Side Events & Exhibits | COP 16 / CMP 6
Interview with Donna Goodman of Earth Child Institute and Rose Coralie Norris, Child Delegate, UNICEF

The interview reports outcomes from the 2 December side event of the same name, underscoring the importance of Article 6 implementation through school programmes and out of school innovations. Highlighting intergenerational action, child participation and the importance of partnerships as a key strategy to national capacity development, looking to raise their priority for negotiators.



Climate Change Studio | COP 16 / CMP 6
Interview with Philipp Hauser, Senior Manager Carbon Credits

Energy generation in emerging countries will triple by 2030. Incentives for clean growth are needed to prevent the installation of GHG intensive assets. National policies in combination with the CDM are a first step towards more efficient market mechanisms.



Climate Change Studio | COP 16 / CMP 6
Interview with Max Brandt, Manager WSPA Centeral America, Mexico and the Caribbean

What is animal welfare and why it matters to animals, people and the
How animals and those that look after them are negatively impacted by
climate change.
How good animal welfare practices can help reduce greenhouse gas



Climate Change Studio | COP 16 / CMP 6
Interview with Rafe Pomerance, President, Clean Air - Cool Planet, and former senior U.S./Kyoto climate negotiator

The urgency of slowing warming in the Arctic and Himalayas has focused attention on the need for rapid reductions in methane. Methane Panel member Rafe Pomerance discusses plans for a prototype methane financing facility; and its potential to hold global temperature rise below 2 degrees.



Climate Change Studio | COP 16 / CMP 6
Interview with Masatake Uezono, Director Citizens’ Alliance for Saving the Atmosphere and the Earth

We show the result of our ‘CASA 2020 Model’ simulation, the potentials of GHG emission reduction in Japan by domestic actions.
