CANEMU Carbon Neutral Municipalities
Five Finnish municipalities have promised to act as laboratories by working to curb their carbon dioxide emissions ahead of schedule. This (...)
Five Finnish municipalities have promised to act as laboratories by working to curb their carbon dioxide emissions ahead of schedule. This ground-breaking project involves the municipalities of Mynämäki, Uusikaupunki, Kuhmoinen, Padasjoki and Parikkala.

The project aims at greenhouse gas emission reductions both in the near future (2-5 years) and in the longer term (6-20 years). Commitment of the municipal authorities, local businesses and residents to emission reductions is essential to success.

Researchers, experts, businesses, politicians and local residents will together devise and tailor solutions that can reduce emissions, especially related to housing, transportation and foodstuffs. All the municipalities will strive to increase their use of renewable energy and improve their material and energy efficiency.

  Digital Divide Networks (Reti Digital Divide)
Normal014falsefalsefalseMicrosoftInternetExplorer4st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) }/* Style Definitions (...)
“Reti Digital Divide” is developed in the framework of broadband networks for Public Administrations in Emilia-Romagna. It aims at assuring a minimum level of communication in all regional areas, including the so-called areas at “market failure”. Activities concern in particular mountainous zones of Appennini as well as some areas of low plane, where the problem of digital divide is stressed by lacking of infrastructures. The goal is to offer to underprivileged territories equal technologial opportunities for socio-economic development.

TEIEN Establishment of Turkish Environmental Information Exchange Network (Türkiye’de Çevre Bilgi değişim Ağı’nın Kurulması Projesi)
The project purpose is the establishment and further development of Turkish Environmental Information Exchange Network to improve the integration of (...)
The project purpose is the establishment and further development of Turkish Environmental Information Exchange Network to improve the integration of environmental concerns into sectoral policies, plans and programmes. The TEIEN will be a functional and effective Inter-Institutional Partnership established to support National Policy, Programming, and Planning Processes through improved access to environmental information, improved data quality, comparable data standards and clear institutional roles and responsibilities. National Policy Formulation, Planning, Environmental Management, Natural Resource Management, Regulatory Frameworks and Environmental Monitoring Capacities will be strengthened through the regular exchange of environmental information; thereby implementation of Environmental Acquis will be accelerated in Turkey.

The TEIEN is a national environmental information network that serves national needs while at the same time enables various institutions to streamline their international obligations. The TEIEN will support a proactive approach to environmental management and natural resource conservation and to deliver clear benefits to the sectors of government.

The TEIEN is expected to achieve three principal results, namely:

-        The national exchange network is established by the end of the project which enhances inter-institutional collaboration in the environment sector and supports national policy and planning processes.

-        The relevant national institutions together with MoEF enhance their capability of accessing, querying, reporting, visualizing the environmental data in a timely and consistent manner.

-        The capacity of the members of the Turkish EIONET structure and NFP is enhanced.

Green IT is the study and practice of designing, manufacturing, using and disposing IT related hardware products in an efficient sustainable way with minimal or even no impact on the environment.

Green Software Engineering is the attempt to apply these "green" principles known from hardware products also on software products, software development processes and their underlying software process models.

The first main goal of the project is to to design a conceptual reference model supporting IT professionals and software users in the sustainable development and usage of software. The second main goal is to develop a software toolbox called "Sustainable Software Support Center" (S3C) that assists IT professionals in realizing systainable, resource-friendly software products.

  Implementing Earth observations, advanced satellite based atmospheric sounders and distributed temperature sensing for effective land surface representation in water resource modelling (Implementering af jordobservation, avanceret satellitbaseret radiosonde data og distribueret temperatur måling i hydrologisk modellering)
In order to predict future freshwater availability and the vulnerability of ecosystems and society to floods and droughts, hydrological model tools (...)
In order to predict future freshwater availability and the vulnerability of ecosystems and society to floods and droughts, hydrological model tools are needed that are capable of accurately representing climate, land use and land cover at different spatial scales. The purpose of this project is to develop model tools capable of quantifying the relative effects of site-specific land use change and climate variability at different scales.

The ICT project RIPS aggregates within the ressort overlapping Environmental Information System Baden-Württemberg (UIS BW) the activities for the provision of basic geological data by a central geo data pool and for the development of geographical databases and functions.

Source: RIPS project report (at LUBW) (available only in German)

RIPS started 2006 (programme KEWA I and II) and consists of two parts in KEWA II:
  1. RIPS-GDI-AAA (Realisation of the RIPS 2006 concept under consideration of the geo data infrastructure of Baden-Württemberg and the AAA concept of the land surveying offices).
  2. RIPS-MDK (Regional Information and Planning System Baden-Württemberg for the ICT group Country/Communities - RIPS metadata profile and further development)
During KEWA III  RIPS was continued as RIPS-GDI-DVV:

RIPS-GDI-DVV: Regional Information and Planning System Baden-Württemberg for the ICT group Country/Communities and with cooperation of the geo data infrastructures of  Baden-Württemberg, Germany und Europe
