Lee Ying-yuan Continued growth in emissions of greenhouse gases around the world has caused abnormal and extreme weather events such as heatwaves, droughts, and catastrophic torrential rains.
These events are no longer just abstract future scenarios; they are happening today in all corners of the globe. Average temperatures in Taiwan in the past two years have been the highest in years.

Indeed, these recent developments are having a considerable impact and pose a significant threat. Other parts of the world have witnessed similar trends. During the summer season, many countries across the Northern Hemisphere in Europe, Asia, North America, and North Africa have experienced record-breaking heatwaves and deadly wildfires that seriously jeopardize human health, agriculture, natural ecosystems, and infrastructure.
To further implement the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and achieve the goals outlined therein, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, in addition to faithfully conducting important projects, consultations, and negotiations, has also invited parties from various fields to join the Talanoa Dialogue, so as to take full advantage of the collective wisdom of humankind in formulating workable solutions to climate change.
As a member of the global village, and in line with the Paris Agreement, Taiwan has actively encouraged all stakeholders to do their part and strengthen efforts toward reducing carbon emissions.
Taiwan has passed the Greenhouse Gas Reduction and Management Act, under which five-year carbon reduction targets have been formulated. At the same time, Taiwan is gradually reducing its reliance on coal, closing older coal facilities and equipping the remaining ones with high-efficiency ultra-supercritical units that cause less pollution.
The government is also investing in other equipment and technology that can help reduce pollution, offering subsidies to encourage people to replace older vehicles as well as promoting electric vehicles.
Furthermore, Taiwan is working on an energy transformation white paper and encouraging public participation and input during this process.
It is also implementing key action plans under the Energy Development Guidelines, so as to make a decisive shift towards sustainable energy development. The pursuit of economic growth often comes at the expense of environmental degradation and depletion of natural resources.
In fact, inEarth Overshoot Day fell on August 1, which was earlier than ever before. In order to find a proper balance between economic development and environmental protection, Taiwan is promoting the circular economy as part of the Five Plus Two Innovative Industries program.
There is a widespread international consensus that the circular economy plays a vital role in achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement. Taiwan has already made significant progress over the past two decades in recycling and reusing resources.
And during the FIFA World Cup, about half of the 32 teams in the tournament wore jerseys produced with recycled bottles from Taiwan. The goal is to achieve a situation in which there is zero waste and everything that can be recycled is recycled. Taiwan is more than willing to share its technology and experience with the international community.
By advancing environmental sustainability, we can ensure that our planet remains as uniquely beautiful and habitable as it has been more for millions of years. All countries and parties should take part in this common endeavour.
Having benefited tremendously from industrialization, Taiwan is now fully committed to playing a key role in saving the planet and its precious ecosystems.
Taiwan is ready and willing to share its knowledge and experience in environmental management, disaster prevention and warning systems, energy efficiency enhancement technology, and application of innovative technology.
Taiwan has long been unfairly disregarded by and isolated from the United Nations system. This has not discouraged us. Let Taiwan join the world, and let the world embrace Taiwan.

In this analysis, we focus on two particularities. First, empowerment of change agents has both short-term and long-term connotations.
The Department of Master of Computer Applications at NHCE was established in the year and offers Master of Computer Applications and PhD programs.
The Department has a total strength of over students, with highly qualified, motivated and experienced faculty members. Notes: This is the tenth anniversary version of Divering Paths II.
Granted, it's also the version I wanted to write from the very beginning. The original suffered from the severe case of chronic exhaustion I had at the time it was written.
Jan 21, · “Climate Change Science claims that any change in the climate is caused by human emissions of minor trace (“greenhouse”) gases in the atmosphere, notably carbon dioxide.” I don’t think that the above is a definition of Climate Change Science, at least as I’m familiar with it.
He is the co-author of 47 peer-reviewed journal articles and one book chapter, and is the co-inventor on three patents. Dr. Oh has served on the faculties of The University of Texas at San Antonio from and has been at Columbia University since Jun 12, · Yet because they hadn’t been around the woods enough to have acquired the breadth of knowledge that comes from extensive familiarity with the academic literature and actual on the ground, hands-on experience, these students, like Marris, were often unable to put forth a systemic analysis.
