Abstract

Investments in forest landscapes and agroforestry will be critical in efforts to address climate change and rural poverty challenges in many countries. While it is the people living in and around forests that are best placed to make the efforts needed to transform them into more sustainable systems from both environmental and livelihoods perspectives, women and men in local communities typically receive very little technical or financial support to do so. This is particularly the case for women. In the context of forest landscape initiatives, two overarching arguments exist for why it is critical to address the challenges to integrating gender equality actions and investments and to take specific steps to address these challenges and enable successful implementation. First and foremost is a rights-based argument. These investments and efforts should not maintain gender inequalities, but rather work toward advancing gender equality, as all people have the right to fair and equal treatment. Secondly, a strong case can be made that many opportunities are missed and investments simply are not as effective and efficient as they potentially could be by being gender-responsive rather than ignoring gender considerations or being gender-blind. Thus, issues arising due to gender inequalities should not just be seen as problems, but as potential opportunities to take actions that enhance both gender equality and forest landscape management, resulting in transformational change on both fronts. Yet project designers, policy makers, and others making decisions affecting forest landscapes are not receivingmuch guidance on exactly what gender-responsive project activities and policy actions should be considered, which will vary according to different contexts. This paper explores these opportunities to enhance gender equality and forest landscape management with the goal of starting to provide such guidance. It reviews key gender gaps identified in forest landscape projects and programs in the literature. It examines what gender-focused activities and actions are being taken to address these gaps in many countries through a review of some of the projects and forest-sector investments supported by the World Bank Group and partners that are now incorporating such actions. The findings show that there is a wide range of gender-responsive forest landscape investments that can be considered by those wishing to contribute to and catalyze results on multiple sustainable development goals. By synthesizing and categorizing these actions, this paper aims to offer both inspiration as well as practical, concrete ideas on how to link knowledge with action in the context of this complex challenge. Much remains to be done, however.

Abstract

Target 9.c of the Sustainable Development Goals calls for the achievement of universal and affordable internet access by 2020. This note analyzes Sub-Saharan Africa’s progress towards this goal. It finds that (i) rates of internet access reported in household surveys differ markedly and are often lower than the prevailing estimates of internet use reported by the International Telecommunications Union, (ii) internet access in regions outside the capital city tends to be lagging and, (iii) lack of access to electricity is a key barrier constraining access to internet among poor Africans.

Savosolar enters China market and partners with Jiangsu Holly Environmental Technology Industrial

Savosolar Oyj ("Savosolar" or the "Company") has signed a partnership agreement with a Chinese company Jiangsu Holly Environmental Technology Industrial Co., Ltd ("Jiangsu Holly").  It is a subsidiary of Jiangsu Holly Corporation, which is listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange. Jiangsu Holly Corporation is engaged in cross-sector international manufacturing and trade, with revenues amounting to CNY 4,032 million (EUR 531 million) in 2017.

Jiangsu Holly will sell and deliver solar thermal systems in China using Savosolar's products. Savosolar will provide the leading technology within solar thermal and bring know-how of large solar thermal system design, delivery and operation.

Entering this agreement, Savosolar will establish its presence in China. The current CFO, Raul Ikonen will enter the position of Savosolar's Country manager in China. He will be based in Shanghai and will from there work to implement Savosolar's China strategy. Savosolar will also establish an entity in China and initiating the partnership with Jiangsu Holly will be Raul's main objective.  Savosolar has already started the recruitment process to find a new CFO to replace Mr. Ikonen, as he will enter the new position in May.

With these steps Savosolar aims to capture its share of the vast, fast growing Chinese renewable energy market and to develop its industry leading technology as a preferred choice and brand for customers in China.

"This is a great milestone in our strategic plans, and we are extremely happy and proud that Jiangsu Holly has chosen us as their partner. We have been systematically working towards this goal already for some time.  We met Jiangsu Holly for the first time almost a year ago and shared positive feeling about a potential co-operation between us. With previous experience working with international companies, Jiangsu Holly possesses motivation and resources to build up required operations fast. They have already established a team for Savosolar's business. More importantly, Jiangsu Holly has extremely good connections throughout China and especially in their home province Jiangsu, which will prove an asset when tapping into potential projects and acquiring customers. 

"The Chinese government is pushing hard to reduce emissions, and by joining forces with Jiangsu Holly, we are contributing to these efforts in China. It is also great to have Raul in China to build Savosolar's presence in the region. He has over a decade of experience in leading positions in China and has already thorough understanding of Savosolar and our products. His input will certainly provide important insight and excellent support for us and Jiangsu Holly to successfully initiate the partnership to sell and deliver the leading technology in large scale solar thermal sector in China" - Jari Varjotie, CEO of Savosolar.

Abstract

On June 1, 2017, President Trump announced the United States' withdrawal from the Paris agreement on climate change. Despite this decision, American firms continued investing in low-carbon technologies and some states committed to tougher environmental standards. To understand this apparent paradox, this paper studies how a weakening of environmental standards affects the behavior of profit-maximizing firms. It finds that a relaxation of emission standards (i) may increase firms' incentives to adopt clean technologies, but not to pollute less; (ii) may negatively affect industry profitability if it is perceived as temporary; and, when this is the case, (iii) the unilateral adoption of stricter standards by large states may increase the expected profitability of every firm.
