War and environment in Ukraine
This snapshot assessment of environmental damage to the Donbas region in Eastern Ukraine, plagued throughout much of 2014 with fighting that still continues, was prepared through cooperation between Zoï Environment Network and the Kyiv-based East Ukraine Environment Institute. To assess the situation and compile the map, the experts used the best available information from governmental and other sources and media reports, as well as their own data, judgements and direct interviews with the affected enterprises and areas. As new data are being collected, this remains work in progress.
cLIMAte change - COP 20
A Zoï delegation was ‘sur place’, taking part in disaster risk reduction, policy analysis, and helping our partners to convey the messages. The Zoï animated clip ‘Integrated climate risk management for a resilient world’ had its premiere in Lima.
Mines and Money
How about sustainability? Zoï was present at the London conference in early December looking for inspiration from miners and investors, and also promoting our ‘better mining’ activities.
Zoï and the European Environment Agency are implementing a pilot program on developing Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS) for Lake Sevan. The main idea is that all environmental information and data (such as indicators) concerning the lake should be collected, published in one place and available for everyone.
A new collection of Zoï cartoons is out! These show different aspects of Afghan-Tajik collaboration on environmental issues in a reader-friendly way and are available in four languages (English, Russian, Tajik and Dari).
