[🇫🇷] Présentation du Petit Déjeuner Professionnel L’inventaire national des émissions de gaz à effet de serre du 22 novembre 2019

22 November 2019

Echange autour de Jérôme Boutang, Directeur Général du CITEPA* sur l’inventaire national des émissions de gaz à effet de serre

De plus en plus, les objectifs des politiques d’atténuation du changement climatique sont définis en termes de « neutralité carbone », une situation qui égalise les émissions brutes de gaz à effet de serre avec la capacité d’absorption du CO2 atmosphérique par les puits de carbone.
Ceci pose de multiples questions sur la métrique à utiliser pour rendre l’objectif opérationnel.

Qu’est-ce que le CITEPA ?*

Le CITEPA (Centre Interprofessionnel Technique d’Etudes de la Pollution Atmosphérique) est une association à but non lucratif. Il élabore, vérifie et diffuse de manière impartiale des informations relatives aux émissions de gaz à effet de serre (GES) et de polluants atmosphériques. La réalisation de l’inventaire national annuel des émissions de gaz à effet de serre et de polluants atmosphériques en France constitue l’activité de référence du CITEPA depuis plus de 20 ans. En tant que point focal sur les émissions françaises, le CITEPA se fonde sur des sources statistiques fiables, ainsi que sur des travaux d’experts dans tous les secteurs d’activité, pour estimer, compiler, synthétiser et diffuser des données, des analyses et des informations auprès des professionnels et des opérateurs publics et privés.

Title

The climate after the end of the month

 

Abstract
 
For a long time, the highly flammable illusion of a wonderful ecological transition that would create jobs and wealth for all, while restoring nature to its former glory, has long been sold to public opinion. This cave of Ali Baba does not exist. On the contrary, whatever we do, the fight for the climate is detrimental to purchasing power. It forces us to turn away in the medium term from this fossil energy that has made our fortunes for two centuries and to ask the developing countries to do the same. This war for climate can not be won without the mobilization of everyone. This requires applying the polluter-pays principle by imposing a universal carbon price reflecting the value of the damage it generates, even if it compensates for the poorest. But are the French ready to sacrifice a little of their welfare today to improve the well-being of others, even if this other is essentially not French, and it is probably not even not born yet? For most, here and elsewhere, the end of the month passes before the end of the world. This disturbing observation raises the question of our responsibilities towards humanity.

Title

 Impacts of Extreme Climate Events on Technical Efficiency in Vietnamese Rice Farming

Authors: Yoro Diallo (CERDI), Sébastien Marchand (CERDI) and Etienne Espagne (AFD and CERDI)

 

Abstract
 
The aim of this study is to examine farm household-level impacts of weather extreme events on Vietnamese rice technical efficiency. Vietnam is considered among the most vulnerable countries to climate change, and the Vietnamese economy is highly dependent on rice production that is strongly affected by climate change. A stochastic frontier analysis is applied with census panel data and weather data from 2010 to 2014 to estimate these impacts while controlling for both adaptation strategy and household characteristics. We find that weather shocks measured by the occurrence of floods, typhoons and droughts negatively affect technical efficiency. Also, additional days with a temperature above 31°C dampen technical efficiency and the negative effect is increasing with temperature. Also, this study combines estimated marginal effects of extreme temperature on technical efficiency with future climate scenarios (RCP 4.5 and 8.5) to project the potential impact of hot temperatures till the end of century on rice technical efficiency.

Title

Designing an EU Ship Recylcing Licence: A Roadmap

Authors: Jean-Philippe Nicolai et Caroline Devaux

 

Abstract
 
Faced with the widespread use of dismantling sites in Asia, whose processes present alarming health and
environmental issues, the European Commission has raised the question of implementing a financial mechanism to encourage
shipowners to use higher standards for ship recycling.
This mechanism would take the form of a recycling licence applicable to any vessel wanting to call at a port within EU territory, whether flying the flag of an EU Member State or of a third country.
The present paper aims to critically assess the main features of the EU’s proposed mechanism from a legal and economic
perspective and to examine the criticisms the mechanism has received to date. Our study shows that reform is desirable but
that the nature and success of the proposed licence remain uncertain, depending on whether the mechanism is able to provide
sufficient incentives. In this light, the paper makes several suggestions designed to improve the project’s economic and legal
viability. It also shows that such a project could speed up the entry into force of the Hong Kong Convention for the Safe and
Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships adopted in May 2009, whose ratification process has been severely delayed.

Title 

Climate Policy in the American Legal System

Brief abstract
 
In the United States, climate change policy may be shaped not only by the Congress and by executive agencies such as US EPA, but also by judicial decisions. This presentation will discuss the prospects for important cases unfolding in the American courts, notably the ‘Juliana’ case brought on behalf of children to press the US government to take more action on climate change, and the likely challenges to the new US EPA rules on greenhouse gas emissions from electric power (the new Trump Administration ACE rule to replace the Obama Administration CPP) and from vehicles (the Trump Administration SAFE rule to revise the Obama Administration CAFE rule).

Title

La fascination de l’ogre – ou comment desserrer l’étau de la finance

Abstract
Finance today operates in a vacuum, serving above all its own interests. But banks are supposed to meet the needs of companies. To finance projects and manage risks: how could we forget the essential? Why do States so obediently serve the interests of the financial sector? Such questions escape democratic debate because the jargon that prevails in these environments makes them unintelligible to citizens. Laurence Scialom’s essay aims to demystify finance and allow independent reflection on these questions. It strengthens the self-defense capabilities of our economies in the face of often predatory finance: let’s stop feeding the ogre! By applying the reforms outlined in this book, we would be able to consider finance clearly and put it in its proper place.
