Policy Brief AssignmentTake on the role of an environmental policy analyst and write a 2 page policy brief based on the deforestation issue portrayed below.”A policy brief is an advocacy and policy-making tool which communicates information to policy-makers and advocates for a certain course of action. Persuasive, evidence-based, and structured writing of this type represents one of the most powerful ways of contributing to policy debates and influencing the policy-making process.”[http://gdppc.idebate.org/content/writing-guidelines-policy-brief]Typical Characteristics of a Policy Brieffocused, succinct & limitedproblem & policy-orientedunderstandable, practical & feasibleanalysis-drivenevidence-basedoffers viable recommendationsappealing layoutYour policy brief should include the following components:executive summarintroduction (context and importance of the issueapproach and results (critique of the policy options)implications and recommendationsconclusionBe creative and feel free to “invent” information to lend credibility to the brief, and to cite your sources. Remember to submit in MS Word. My expectation is a well written policy brief.Be sure to review the sample policy briefs in the appropriate folder under the Resources area, and to review the two documents on writing a policy brief.Base your policy brief on these two particular deforestation issues occurring in different parts of the world:Deforestation is a particular concern in tropical rainforests because these forests are home to much of the worlds biodiversity.For example, in the Amazon around 17% of the forest has been lost in the last 50 years, mostly due to forest conversion for cattle ranching. Deforestation in this region is particularly rampant near more populated areas, roads and rivers, but even remote areas have been encroached upon when valuable mahogany, gold and oil arediscovered.”http://www.worldwildlife.org/threats/deforestation (Links to an external site.)”On 11 December 2014, Forest WatchIndonesia released maps of the remaining forest cover in Indonesias most heavily forested provinces. The maps paint a dismal picture. Patches of green indicating forests are subject to overlapping mining and plantation permits.In Kalimantan, for example, 78 per cent of the land is now owned by concession (or permit) holders, largely mining and palm oil companies. Real improvements to governance and action from important players, including large land-concession owners, are needed if Indonesia is to slow its current world record rate of forest loss, an indicator of the seventh Millennium Development Goal (MDG 7).”http://www.insideindonesia.org/an-ongoing-environmental-challenge-2
Each week, you will reflect and respond to a set of questions regarding that weeks readings. Your response should be 1.5-2 pages or about 500 words and will be submitted on GauchoSpace. For this week, consider the following: Define environmental justice. How does this term climate justice overlap with or differ from environmental justice? What roles should environmental policy and activism play in environmental and climate justice? Are these roles always fulfilled when fighting for environmental and climate justice?
Refer to the unit study guide for the needed information about water systems before attempting to complete this assignment. For this assignment, you will submit Part 4 of the scenario-based case study course project, which is due in Unit VIII. You should evaluate and revise the recommendations as needed during the process for each previous unit as you learn more during the progression of this course. Please continue to draw upon your imagination to think creatively on potential concerns with fire and explosive hazards, fire controls, and fire and emergency management. Look at fire protection technology in a holistic way that is significantly different from what was previously designed by thinking in isolation. You will evaluate and develop recommendations to resolve potential fires in the future. Section I As you make suggestions to improve life, safety, and fire protection, refer back to the background information, if needed, to provide you with the necessary material to identify the basic components common to fire protection for the City of Washington Distribution Warehouse. As we have been building on each phase of the scenario for fire protection design, evaluate the appropriate quality, quantity, and pressure of the water protection system in the scenario. This assignment is not looking for compliance with building codes nor expecting you to be a fire protection system designer. However, the purpose of this assignment is for you to apply the concepts and knowledge you have learned in this unit as you begin writing your final project covering protection systems that will detect, contain, control, and extinguish a fire. In addition, this assignment provides you with the opportunity to use your skills, expertise, and experience to enrich your response. Prepare a well-organized narrative addressing the existing water distribution system supplying the fire protection system for the warehouse described in the unit study guide. Your discussion will consist of your evaluation of the water system and the effect of water pressure on the fire as it relates to the movement of water, the components of a water supply and distribution network, and if the warehouse should be on the public water system or private water system. Section II In the unit lesson, fire brigades were described. Explain the views to a reader unfamiliar with fire brigades, including references to specific statements. What are the characteristics of fire brigades in the industrial or commercial setting? Should fire brigades be a part of todays fire protection? Why, or why not? For this assignment, you will write a two-page narrative (one page per section) supporting your position. Use APA level one headings for each section. The heading should be indicative of the major section to follow. You must have a title page and references page. You may use information from reputable, reliable journal articles, case studies, scholarly papers, and other sources that you feel are pertinent. You should use at least three sources, one of which must be your textbook. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations following proper APA style.
There are many threats to our environment created by businesses. Discuss one current environmental threat caused by an organization. Describe what the threat is and how it is affecting our environment. What steps, if any, are being taken to reduce these threats? Do you think more should be done? Do environmental rules/regulations affect the GDP in a positive or negative way? Explain your response. What if no rules/regulations are put into effect for a serious environmental problem, can the US GDP be affected by the lack of protection? Explain. Should businesses abide by environmental rules in the US when working in developing nations that do not have the same rules? Why/why not? What happens when other countries do not follow the same restrictions as countries that are working hard to protect the environment, does it create a competitive advantage for foreign businesses? Explain your answer. A website with examples of Environmental Threats: https://www.worldwildlife.org/threats
