  • Policies to support environmental risk management in investment decisions
    • Authors: Edward B. Barbier, Joanne C. Burgess
      Pages: 117 - 129
      Abstract: Investors are increasingly requiring assessments of environmental risks arising from climate change, natural resource scarcity and pollution. Improved environmental risk management also lowers the total cost of capital of firms, thus making them more attractive to investors. We illustrate this relationship by demonstrating how greater environmental risk may increase a firm's after-tax cost of capital. However, better environmental risk management by firms requires a range of complementary policies. The rules governing the financial system should support investment decision-making that takes into account environmental sources of risk and opportunity. Central banks can advance this objective by establishing environmental risk management and reporting requirements and adjusting capital provisioning to account for underpriced environmental threats. There is also a need to develop international guidelines and common policy and legal frameworks to support and streamline such initiatives. Developing such a policy strategy is likely to produce a self-reinforcing gain to firms, investors and society.

  • Soft prediction model for spatial data analysis
    • Authors: J. Velmurugan, M. Venkatesan
      Pages: 130 - 143
      Abstract: A natural disaster causes huge loss in terms of people life and infrastructures. Landslide is one of the prime disasters in the hill regions such as Uttarakhand, Sikkim and Ooty in India. The extent of damages of landslide could be reduced or minimised by proposing novel landslide risk analysis model. Landslide is generated by various factors such as rainfall, soil, slope, land use and land covers, geology, etc. Data science and soft computing plays major role in landslide risk analysis. In this paper, classification data science technique is integrated with rough set model and soft Bayesian prediction model (SBPM) is proposed to analyse the possibilities of various landslide risk level at Coonor Taluk of Niligiri district. The proposed model is validated with real time data and performance is compared with other classification models.

  • Impact of technical and efficiency changes on productivity
    • Authors: Christina Bampatsou, George Halkos, Dimitra Kaika, Efthimios Zervas
      Pages: 144 - 162
      Abstract: Better management of natural capital, an efficient allocation of resources and technological progress can contribute to productivity change. The present study uses data envelopment analysis to determine the total factor productivity index, in the case of the EU15 countries, using panel data on energy consumption for a period spanning from 1995 to 2011. The aim is not only to determine the index of total factor productivity change but also to record its driving forces for the decision making units under consideration, showing whether the productivity gains come mainly from an improvement in efficiency or derive merely as a result of technological progress. In terms of eco-efficiency, the paper contributes in showing whether the overall development is more driven by input-saving or environmental-saving processes. The detailed decomposition offers policy makers additional insights into more valuable reference material representing the driving forces of productivity gains or losses.

  • Environment and economic growth in the Russian Arctic
    • Authors: Christina Bampatsou, George Halkos, Dimitra Kaika, Efthimios Zervas
      Pages: 163 - 174
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the hypothesis of the inverted U-shaped interdependence between environmental damage from air pollutant emissions and economic growth measured by gross regional product (GRP) per capita in the Arctic regions of Russia. Using the panel data for the period of 2000-2014, we apply FM-OLS panel long-run estimates proposed by Pedroni to investigate the existence of environmental Kuznets curve. Various panel data unit root and co-integration tests are also applied. We examine the stationary properties of individual series in panel datasets using different panel unit root tests. According to the concept of the environmental Kuznets curve all regions of the Russian Arctic are on the increasing branch of the curve. The economic growth is found to have no beneficial effect on the environment in the Arctic. We actualise the need of concentrated policies and incentives to reduce air pollutant emissions in the Russian Arctic.

  • Towards sustainability performance management system of tourism
           enterprises: a tourism sustainable balanced scorecard framework
    • Authors: Ioanna Giannoukou, Christina C. Beneki
      Pages: 175 - 196
      Abstract: This paper intends to provide the components and the process for a firm to establish, maintain and improve a culture of sustainable development in firms in the field of tourism and a framework for an effective management system, the performance of which can be monitored and verified. It is applicable to all firms in the entire tourism industry such as hotels, restaurants, tourism agents, and tour operators. The results are identified through the development of sustainable tourism performance criteria and indicators, which have been divided around four main perspectives: institutional; economic; socio cultural; and environmental. The management tool and methodology of the traditional balanced scorecard have been developed further towards the tourism sustainability balance scorecard integrating institutional, economic, socio-cultural and environmental perspectives. The tourism sustainability balanced scorecard defines the causal relation between factors of firms in order to establish priorities and targets in a rational decision-making process.

      Abstract: Sustainable tourism has become a critical concern for local and global communities due to several detrimental issues on tourist destinations. However, traditional tourism research generally adopts a reductionalist approach that has its limitations as it fails to see the interdependencies of many components within the tourism system. This study attempts to demonstrate an alternative approach to dealing with complexities of cave sustainability in the form of system dynamics. Two major policies for cave tourism sustainability were employed to simulate the long-term sustainability of the tourist cave system. A case study was carried out on an emerging cave destination in central Philippines in order to explore the dynamic impacts of the policies. As a result, the combination of dynamic pricing and vegetation improvement is the best policy mix that can be implemented by management to ensure that the requirements of sustainable tourism are not violated in running the cave system.

  • Challenges and opportunities associated with the role of forestry in
           promoting water-energy and food security nexus in Ethiopia
    • Authors: Dawit Diriba Guta, Djiby Racine Thiam
      Pages: 214 - 229
      Abstract: This paper discusses the extent to which decentralised and participatory forest resources management contributes to promoting synergies and reducing trade-offs in the water-energy and food security nexus in Ethiopia. After having briefly highlighted the historical and institutional context of forest management policy in the country, we provide an articulated and holistic nexus framework that takes into account the complementarity and interconnectedness that emerge from simultaneous natural resources uses. Moreover, the proposed framework takes into account the competing interests that exist between forest and other natural resources such as water, energy and land use for agriculture. Forest policy is therefore elaborated in a broader context where there are synergies and trade-offs associated with natural resource management. This paper finally outlines the institutional settings and governance structures that support a nexus management approach, which provides policy innovations that are required to achieve optimal economic and non-economic values of forest and alternative natural resources uses.

  • Recognising 'conservationism of the poor' towards holistic
           sustainability: study of an Indian national park
    • Authors: Diptimayee Nayak, Bharati Puri, Vrajaindra Upadhyay
      Pages: 230 - 261
      Abstract: This paper analyses perceptions of poor households living in and around an Indian national park, the Bhitarkanika National Park (BNP), towards conservation, in the lens of the concepts 'conservationism of the poor' and 'environmentalism of the poor' as a theoretical tool. Values and motives held to conserve this pristine beauty are determined based on <i>raison d'être</i> cited by respondents. The paper analyses the matrix of values perceived about conservation at this park. Despite their low income, respondents assign non-use value as a reason to conserve this mangrove wetland. It is noteworthy that their willingness to pay (WTP) for the conservation of the BNP, in terms of labour hours is 295.6 times more than their WTP in terms of cash per annum. This paper insists on studying different types of values associated with conservation of the park and conjectures that non-use values form an important part in conservation, which must be recognised in a policy decision-making process for sustainability.

  • Water scarcity management: part 2: satellite-based composite
           drought analysis
    • Authors: Nicolas R. Dalezios, Nicholas Dercas, Seyed Saeid Eslamian
      Pages: 262 - 295
      Abstract: The composite use of two drought indices, namely the Reconnaissance Drought Index (RDI) for meteorological drought and the Vegetation Health Index (VHI) for agricultural drought, is considered for drought quantification and monitoring leading to water scarcity. The results of 20-year monthly RDI for Thessaly, Greece, indicate that there are eight drought periods lasting 12 months each and the start of severe and extreme drought usually coincides with the beginning of the hydrological year, whereas for moderate droughts the start occurs in spring, both lasting until the end of the hydrological year. There is also an increase in the areal extent of drought with the maximum occurring in the summer. Similarly, the results of VHI indicate that drought occurs every year during the warm season with increasing severity and areal extent. The findings justify the composite use of drought indices of different drought types for drought assessment and monitoring.
