Highlights

Call for articles - Environment & Poverty Times

GRID-Arendal in collaboration with UNEP's Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific and the UN-ESCAP are currently preparing the 7th issue of Environment & Poverty Times (EPT). We would like to invite contributors to submit brief narrative articles.

The focus of the 7th issue of EPT is industrial use of fresh water in East and South East Asia.

The issue is published under the project “Resource Efficiency and Water Management for Green Economies in Asia” and co-financed by the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA).

The EPT is an easy-to-read and illustrated ‘newspaper’, published at irregular intervals, focusing on the links between poverty and environment from different perspectives. It aims to be of interest not only to professionals working in the area of sustainable development, but also to interested people of the general public. Most of the articles focus on concrete and practical experiences ‘from the field’. 

We are collecting inputs and articles from a wide range of organisations (UNEP and other UN-agencies, NGOs, academia, research institutes etc). The print run of the Environment and Poverty Times will be 10,000 copies. A web version of the publication will also be made available. For more information on the Environment & Poverty Times and to find past copies, please go to http://www.grida.no/publications/et/

The article should tell a story that people can be inspired and learn from. It could address topics like freshwater crisis and possible solutions, water pollution, industrial use of freshwater, or water security.

Scope:
The focus of the 7th issue of EPT is industrial use of fresh water in East and South East Asia. The objective is to communicate about controversies, challenges and possible solutions. Linkages are made to green economy, poverty alleviation, waste water, resource and energy efficiency and green growth.

Length:
Articles must follow the specified length, and authors will be asked to kindly adjust the length if an article is longer than called for. The editor may suggest or make changes to the text, and the author can be asked to edit and adjust the article accordingly.
