IEA releases Sustainable Recovery Plan with strong focus on hydropower modernisation | International Hydropower Association

IEA releases Sustainable Recovery Plan with strong focus on hydropower modernisation | International Hydropower Association | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic and economic crisis being felt across the world, today the IEA released its Sustainable Recovery Plan.

It seeks to show governments what they can do to boost economic growth, create jobs and put global greenhouse gas emissions into structural decline. 

IHA Chief Executive Eddie Rich welcomed the report: “Trillions of dollars will be spent by governments on the economic recovery. As the report demonstrates, sustainable hydropower can not only deliver long term cheap and clean energy, but also tens of thousands of skilled jobs with the right support. It should be near the top of the shopping list.”

The world has a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” to pour investment into clean energy and create millions of new jobs, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA).

Its “sustainable recovery plan” for the coronavirus pandemic lays out a series of measures that the agency says would ensure 2019 was the “definitive peak” for global emissions.

Oil and gas producers' methane emissions could rise in COVID-19 aftermath: IEA | S&P Global Platts

Methane emissions by the global oil and gas industry could rise rather than fall in the aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis, contrasting with an expected reduction in CO2 emissions, as weak prices and policy shifts hamper efforts to contain the potent greenhouse gas, the IEA said June 18.

Chinese economy powering ahead--China Economic Net

Chinese economy powering ahead--China Economic Net | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
Despite external uncertainties, the Chinese economy continues to power ahead, at a slower but more sustainable pace, with increasing market opportunities for the rest of the world.

China's manufacturing purchasing managers' index (PMI) came in at 50.8 in September. The gauge of factory activity was down from 51.3 in August but has remained in the expansionary territory for 26 months in a row.

The slowdown, along with moderating fixed-asset investment and industrial profits, has caused concerns regarding China's economy.

Analysts, however, suggest the use of a long-term approach to feel the pulse of the economy, which is constantly growing due to four key factors -- economic fundamentals, growth outlook, resilience and policy incentives.

Opec, non-Opec countries seek long-term cooperation deal on production | UAE Business Review

Oil producers aim to agree a framework for long-term cooperation to ensure oil market balancing when Opec and non-Opec members meet in Vienna in December.

Stressing the need for oil producers to stick together for the good of the global economy as Iran faces renewed US sanctions, Opec secretary-general Mohammed Sanusi Barkindo said on Tuesday in Fujairah that an agreement between Opec and non-members that cut production and helped bring prices back up from lows of $30 a barrel in January 2016 was now 'a permanent feature.'

'Our determination is to institutionalise this cooperation and to get the permanent framework hopefully by December,' Barkindo said at the energy forum in Fujairah.

At the upcoming meeting in Algeria on September 23, oil producers will discuss the best mechanism to ensure they reach 100 per cent compliance with crude supply targets, he said amid signs that Opec's quest to balance oil markets is about to get murkier as Venezuela's economic crisis and US sanctions of Iran - Opec's third-biggest supplier - loom.

Ben Bernanke: Economy Is Headed 'Off The Cliff'

Ben Bernanke: Economy Is Headed 'Off The Cliff' | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
Former Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke earned widespread praise for his deft handling of the 2008 financial crisis, applying lessons from economic and financial history to avert a general economic meltdown. Right now, he's alarmed by the combination of a $1.5 trillion tax cut and a $300 billion increase in federal spending, warning that this is "a stimulus at the very wrong moment," because, as he also was quoted by Bloomberg, "The economy already is at full employment." He expects the impact of this stimulus to run its course by 2020, after which time he predicts the U.S. economy "to go off the cliff."

IEA calls for $3 trillion global investment in COVID-19 recovery | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
The International Energy Agency has unveiled a global COVID-19 recovery plan for the global energy sector which outlines a three-year series of actions designed to revitalize economies, boost employment and make energy systems cleaner and more resilient.

At a live-streamed press briefing, IEA executive director Dr Fatih Birol said: “Our numbers show that there has been a huge impact across the energy sector, some parts more, some parts less, and a big decline in carbon usage.

“We are putting on the table a road-map of how to get out this crisis in better shape, [meaning] a much more modern, cleaner, more resilient energy system, while energy policies give a boost to economic growth, and help to create new jobs.”

Data-Driven Gender Equality by Gabriela Ramos & Mario Pezzini

Data-Driven Gender Equality by Gabriela Ramos & Mario Pezzini | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
At the current rate of progress, it will take more than 200 years to achieve gender equality and female empowerment at work. In many countries, girls are still forced to marry young, which limits their access to education and future employment opportunities. In Niger, for example, in 2016, 76% of girls aged 15-19 were married, which partly explains why 73% of lower-secondary-school-age girls are out of school. Child labor is also common, and almost a third of the world’s women believe that domestic violence is a justifiable punishment under certain circumstances, such as burning meals.

Neue Prognosen und Kommentare von Weltbank, Helaba, EIU und AHK


Die neuesten Prognosen der Weltbank, Helaba, EIU und AHK zeigen übereinstimmend auf, dass sich das Wachstum in Russland 2019 abschwächen wird.  Ebenso ist für 2020 auch kein signifikantes Wachstum zu erwarten.

Anfang Dezember veröffentlichte die Weltbank ihren halbjährlichen „Russia Economic Report“. So ausführlich analysiert kaum eine andere internationale Wirtschaftsorganisation die Entwicklung der Wirtschaft in Russland. Die Weltbank beschränkt sich auf den 60 Seiten des Berichts nicht auf Prognosen zur Konjunkturentwicklung in den nächsten zwei oder drei Jahren. Sie wagt auch längerfristige Ausblicke. Wie immer verfolgt sie mit besonderem Interesse, wie sich die Armutsquote in Russland entwickelt.

"New forecasts and comments from World Bank, Helaba, EIU and AHK"


The latest World Bank forecasts, Helaba, EIU and AHK, agree that growth in Russia will slow in 2019. Likewise, no significant growth is expected for 2020.

 

At the beginning of December, the World Bank published its biannual " Russia Economic Report ". Hardly any other international business organization analyzes the development of the Russian economy in such detail. The World Bank does not limit itself to forecasting the economic development in the next two or three years on the 60 pages of the report. She also ventures longer-term prospects. As always, she follows with particular interest how the poverty rate is developing in Russia.

Could current inflation targeting frameworks be improved? –

Could current inflation targeting frameworks be improved? – | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it

As discussed in the latest OECD Economic Outlook, the prolonged undershooting of inflation targets, despite massive monetary policy stimulus and stronger economic growth and lower unemployment, raises issues about the appropriateness of current inflation targeting frameworks in advanced economies. While the frameworks differ in detail and implementation, they are principally based on medium-term inflation objectives of 2%.

OECD Economic Outlook

Various modifications of, and alternatives to, inflation targeting frameworks have been advocated to make monetary policy more effective and credible. While none of them is without drawbacks, and it is not clear if they would provide substantial improvements from those used at present, periodic reviews of current frameworks would be useful.
