► Session 1a : Commerce et changement climatique

(Présidée par Jiahua PAN)

Le changement climatique est un problème mondial et, selon certains, un “mal” public mondial. La collaboration internationale est donc fondamentale pour proposer une réponse politique efficace à ce phénomène. Or, le Protocole de Kyoto offre trois mécanismes de partage des responsabilités : le Mécanisme de Développement Propre (MDP); la Mise en Œuvre Conjointe (MOC), et les Crédits d’Emissions. Cette session explore le rôle controversé des pays en développement dans la résolution des problèmes couverts par le Protocole de Kyoto. Plus précisément, elle se propose d’examiner comment les politiques et les méthodes de lutte contre le changement climatique pourraient être adaptées au contexte d’un pays en développement, notamment en promouvant davantage l’application du Mécanisme de Développement Propre et le renforcement de la collaboration en matière d’échanges carbone.

► Session 1b : Villes durables

(Présidée par Suocheng DONG)

La nécessité de relever les défis environnementaux et de répondre aux besoins d’une population croissante a entraîné une évolution du fonctionnement de la ville. Les réglementations sur les rejets admis dans l’écosystème, (air, sol, eau) s’étant durcies, on attend désormais des collectivités locales une gestion responsable de la ville et un encouragement à l’adoption de modes de vie durables. Qu’il s’agisse de l’eau ou de la gestion des déchets, les villes sont invitées à réduire leur impact, à éviter le gaspillage et à limiter les pollutions. Cette transformation suppose l’abandon d’un modèle linéaire dans lequel la ville est un consommateur de ressources et un producteur de déchets, au profit d’un modèle circulaire et plus intégré qui transforme les déchets en ressources et développe des technologies alternatives. L’évolution vers une gestion respectueuse de l’environnement  requiert la coopération de tous, gouvernements, entreprises, communautés, experts,  etc.

► Session 1c : Environnement urbain et santé

(Présidée par Jennifer Holdaway)
 
La qualité de l’environnement urbain est appelée à jouer un rôle croissant pour la santé publique dans la mesure où les villes pourraient  bientôt concentrer les risques environnementaux et sanitaires émergents. Par conséquent, le suivi des impacts sur la santé des sources de pollution urbaines (air, eau, etc.) et leur maîtrise s’imposent. Intégrer la gestion de la santé et de la pollution urbaine dans les villes peut contribuer à prévenir des problèmes environnementaux porteurs de risque. Les villes pourront contribuer au bien-être de l’homme si elles parviennent à protéger la santé des citadins et à relever les défis que sont notamment l’accès à l’assainissement, la gestion des déchets, la pollution de l’air intérieur et extérieur.

► Session 2a : Politique Commerciale verte

(Présidée par HU Tao)
 

Les questions touchant au commerce sont étroitement liées à celles qui relèvent de l’environnement. Un commerce non durable ne fera qu’exacerber la pollution de l’environnement, tandis qu’un environnement fortement pollué aura un impact négatif sur le développement des échanges commerciaux. Des politiques commerciales vertes sont donc essentielles pour assurer le développement harmonieux du commerce et de l’environnement. Une protection de l’environnement et des mesures commerciales appropriées devront être adoptées de manière à optimiser la structure du commerce, à ajuster le volume total des échanges commerciaux et à améliorer l’état de l’environnement. Cette session explore différentes questions allant des mesures commerciales vertes (y compris des mesures tarifaires et non tarifaires), à la fiscalité carbone en passant par les expériences de pays développés sur ces sujets.

► Session 2b : Mobilité

(Présidée par Jiang Yulin)

Cette session a été organisée en collaboration avec l’Institut pour la ville en mouvement
Dans un contexte d’urbanisation rapide et d’inquiétude croissante pour l’environnement, les acteurs locaux doivent intégrer ces contraintes et adapter l’organisation spatiale de la ville tout en offrant des solutions de mobilité innovantes. Depuis les transports publics (bus, tramways, etc.) jusqu’à la bicyclette en passant par le covoiturage, il importe de trouver des solutions alternatives au véhicule automobile privé, surtout dans les pays à urbanisation rapide. Ceci permettrait de soulager les encombrements de la circulation et de réduire la pollution atmosphérique tout en faisant de la ville un lieu plus durable et plus agréable à vivre.

Quelle matrice comptable employer pour que l’environnement puisse être pris en compte sous cet angle, et comment la comparer avec le paradigme PIB Vert ? Des communications portant sur le sens et sur les impératifs d’un développement humain durable, de même que des études empiriques des questions environnementales et de développement durable sous l’angle du développement humain sont également les bienvenues.
