Fostering a Sustainable and Secure Energy Supply for Kenya

Maria Apergi, Judith Hermann, Laima Eicke, Andreas Goldthau, Jude Kurniawan, Esther Schuch & Silvia Weko
Kenya is a climate and renewable energy frontrunner in the sub-Saharan region. The country is committed to decarbonisation and currently aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 32 % by 2030, relative to the business-as-usual scenario. Kenya has rapidly increased electrification access over the last decade thanks to a strong on- and off-grid renewable energy sector. Electricity from renewable sources covered 88 % of total domestic demand in 2020. The bulk of this is generated using geothermal...

Commons-Public Partnerships. New avenues of cooperation for social-ecological transformations

Paul Jerchel & Judith Pape
Local cooperation between civil society and the public sector is becoming increasingly important – in local transformation projects, in science, and occasionally in politics and administration. Commons-Public Partnerships (CPPs) provide a way to frame, promote and extend this collaboration. In civil society, CPPs are typically defined by the practice of commoning, where local communities exercise self-regulation based on the principles of community welfare and the common good. This discussion paper examines the theory and practice...

From coal to renewables in Mpumalanga: Employment effects, opportunities for local value creation, skills requirements, and gender-inclusiveness. Assessing the co-benefits of decarbonising South Africa’s power sector. COBENEFITS Executive Report

, &
This study builds on a unique and hitherto confidential, unpublished set of employee data for Eskom and coal mines, provided by Eskom (under a non-disclosure agreement) and the Mining Quality Authority (MQA). The sourced data sets connect gender, qualification levels, and years of service, thereby enabling analysis of the skills and gender balance in the coal industry, and assessment of the potential for transferring expertise to the renewable energy sector. In addition, interviews were conducted...

Su objetivo es crear un marco para una economía oceánica sostenible. Para lograr este ambicioso objetivo, los...

Accelerating the Jordanian Energy Transition

Silvia Weko, Judith Hermann, Maria Apergi, Laima Eicke, Andreas Goldthau, Jude Kurniawan & Esther Schuch
Jordan’s energy transition has been rapid and ambitious: in 2021 renewables accounted for 26 % of electricity production in Jordan, up from less than 1 % in 2014. This massive leap forward was prompted by energy security concerns in the wake of the Arab Spring that forced the government to scramble for alternatives to Egyptian gas. Today, Jordan is a regional clean energy industry frontrunner, with over 300 PV companies and around 13 000 employees in the...

Technical requirements in public auctions to make solar plants shine

Adela Marian, Florian Anselm Münch, Elena Ammel, Niels Ferdinand, Saurabh Kumar, Asier Ukar, Maialen López, Knut Blind & Rainer Quitzow
The deployment of solar photovoltaic (PV) technology is accelerating across the globe, as prices continue to fall and countries begin their transition from fossil to renewable energy. Public auctions have become the dominant policy tool for solar PV deployment: 106 countries held renewable energy auctions (dominated by solar) by the end of 2018 (IRENA a, 2019). One third of the 55 countries that held renewable auctions in 2017 – 2018 did so for the first time (ibid.)....

Green Employment for Women. Towards gender-inclusive renewable energy careers

Arunima Hakhu & Sebastian Helgenberger
For too long, professional careers in the energy sector have been male-dominated. Until recently, women accounted for a mere 1 per cent of top management positions and 6 per cent of technical staff in the fossil energy sector globally (Baruah, 2017). In comparison, the renewable energy sector has seen an increase in women employment over the past decade. However, men still outnumber women in the sector’s key functions in technical, managerial and policymaking positions (Vangchuay...

Kristina M. Gjerde & Glen Wright
Tras más de una década de deliberaciones informales, los Estados de las Naciones Unidas (ONU) están negociando actualmente un „instrumento internacional jurídicamente vinculante para la conservación y el uso sostenible de la biodiversidad marina en las áreas situadas fuera de la jurisdicción nacional“ („Acuerdo BBNJ“). El objetivo de las negociaciones es reforzar el marco jurídico internacional para la protección y la gestión de los océanos globales, colmando las lagunas del marco actual y aprovechando las...

Increasing the Social Performance of Renewable Energy Projects for Communities in Mexico. Applying the capabilities approach to place communities at the center of the energy transition

Almudena Nunez
While the expansion of the renewable energy sector in developing countries like Mexico is paramount and needs to scale up to contribute to the targets of the Paris Climate agreement by decarbonizing energy systems, this process must not leave local communities behind and prevent them from achieving well-being. While social and economic co-benefits of renewable energy, such as employment opportunities and cost savings, have been identified for Mexico, the ways in which these opportunities will...

Klimaschutz durch Meeresnatur: Potentiale und Handlungsoptionen

Röschel Lina, Unger Sebastian, Thiele Torsten, Neumann Barbara & Boteler Ben
Marine Ökosysteme wie Mangrovenwälder, Seegraswiesen, Salzwiesen und Makroalgen sowie marine Sedimente verfügen über die Eigenschaft, Kohlenstoff in ihrer Biomasse und Sedimenten zu speichern. Durch die Rehabilitation, Wiederherstellung und den Schutz dieser Ökosysteme kann somit das Potential des Ozeans zur Aufnahme von atmosphärischem CO2 erhöht werden. Dieses Potential wurde in Vorbereitung der 15. UN-Klimakonferenz in Kopenhagen 2009 unter dem Konzept „Blue Carbon" eingeführt und wird seitdem weiter erforscht und in politischen Prozessen weiterentwickelt. Die langfristige Sequestrierung...

Gestion intégrée des océans pour la conservation et l'utilisation durable des ZAJN dans l'Atlantique du Sud-Est et le Pacifique du Sud-Est

Carolina Hazin, Paula Bueno, Kristina Gjerde, Ben Boteler, Carole Durussel & Susan Waugh
La gestion intégrée des océans (GIO) est une approche adaptative de la gestion des activités humaines dans l'océan, qui est ancrée dans l'approche écosystémique. Elle nécessite la prise en compte de toutes les dimensions de l'espace océanique – sphères physique, océanographique, climatique, biologique, sociale, économique – et inclut la dynamique spatiale et temporelle du système. Elle vise à créer un cadre pour une économie océanique durable. Pour atteindre cet objectif ambitieux, les processus de gestion...

Kristina Gjerde, Ben Boteler, Carole Durussel, Julien Rochette, Sebastian Unger & Glen Wright
Cette note d'information montre qu'il est à la fois nécessaire et possible d'accroître l'interaction entre les niveaux régional et mondial de la gouvernance des océans par le biais d'un nouvel accord mondial pour la conservation et l'utilisation durable de la biodiversité marine dans les zones situées au-delà de la juridiction nationale (BZAJN). Cette note vise en particulier à mettre en évidence le rôle et la contribution de la gouvernance régionale et sectorielle dans l'élaboration et...

Autozentrierte Gesellschaft

Anke Kläver & Sandra Beaufaÿs
Das 9-Euro-Ticket verändert gerade die Sicht auf Mobilität in Deutschland, das als „Autoland“ gilt: Die Autoindustrie hält uns angeblich wirtschaftlich am Leben, es gibt 49 Millionen private PKWs, es wird schneller damit gefahren als in anderen Teilen Europas und die Infrastruktur ist komplett darauf ausgerichtet. Ist dieser Sachverhalt auch ein Fall für die Ungleichheits- und Geschlechterforschung? Sandra Beaufays sprach mit Anke Kläver, Mobilitätsforscherin und Doktorandin am Potsdamer Institut für transformative Nachhaltigkeitsforschung, über unsere autozentrierte Gesellschaft.

Vers une gestion écosystémique de l‘océan: Renforcer la coopération régionale par un nouvel accord pour la conservation et l‘utilisation durable de la biodiversité marine dans les zones au-delà de la juridiction nationale

Kristina M. Gjerde & Glen Wright
Après plus d‘une décennie de délibérations informelles, les États aux Nations unies (ONU) négocient actuellement un „instrument international juridiquement contraignant sur la conservation et l’utilisation durable de la biodiversité marine des zones situées au-delà des limites de la juridiction nationale“ („Accord BZAJN“). Les négociations visent à renforcer le cadre juridique international pour la protection et la gestion de l‘océan pour combler les lacunes du cadre actuel et en s‘appuyant sur les obligations existantes dans le...
