    ADB's water policy of 2001 promotes integrated water resources management but recognizes the need to recognize local water resource issues and needs. One size does not fit all: guided by country partnership strategies, plans must be based on country water action agendas.

                • Designing Transitions in Energy Systems: The Human Dimensions

                  Energy systems are changing rapidly around the world, with increasingly deep consequences for society, the economy, and geopolitics. These transitions demand a new approach to energy policy that extends beyond narrow considerations of technology and cost to encompass the broader societal dimensions of energy change. This talk introduces a new framework for energy policy analysis and implementation built around the concept of socio-energy system design. People literally inhabit energy systems, both existing and future, living, working, and playing amidst energy technologies and markets. Especially in the context of large-scale transitions, therefore, design choices for future energy systems will have significant consequences not only for how energy technologies work and generate business value but also for health and wellbeing, livelihoods, relationships, institutions, and political and economic power. Evidence is growing rapidly that the social dynamics of energy transitions are already feeding back (e.g., in the form of social movements, political opposition, or market choices) into energy industry choices. The challenge confronting new energy technologies is thus not simply scale but also social and economic geography—not just can we build a TW of solar PV or a GT of carbon storage, but which TW or GT will we build, how will the system and its socio-economic arrangements be designed, and with what distribution of costs, benefits, and risks for diverse communities.

                    Renewable energy financing in emerging economies faces particularly daunting challenges, but there are policy solutions that could potentially reduce the cost of renewable energy support by as much as 30%. In a recent CPI series, we look at two potential solutions: Reducing the cost of debt dramatically reduces the total amount of support renewable energy requires, and makes those subsidies cheaper to provide. Our analysis demonstrates that policy makers could reduce the cost of supporting renewable energy in rapidly developing economies by 30% if it were delivered through subsidized debt rather than through higher tariffs or subsidies on top of wholesale energy prices. By indexing renewable energy tariffs to foreign currency a group of middle-to-low-income countries with ambitious renewable energy targets including Turkey, India, Indonesia, South Africa, and Mexico could attract additional foreign debt to the sector. This measure reduces the currency risks that would otherwise erode the cost advantages of cheaper, longer-term foreign debt and could save these countries 30% on their renewable energy support. In this webinar CPI Senior Director David Nelson and India Fellow Gireesh Shrimali summarize main points from the series and take questions from webinar participants.

                      The Revd Jennifer Furphy, Vicar of St Marks Anglican Church in Balnarring, on the Mornington Peninsula, has organised the churches of Balnarring to toll their bells each Tuesday to protest against the continued incarceration of children in refugee detention centres. Ms Furphy hopes to continue the practice until all children are released from imprisonment in these centres and is challenging other churches to follow suit.
