A través de las fuentes, se analizaron estrategias esenciales para el desarrollo sostenible en Colombia, tales como: estrategias pedagógicas enfocadas a cambiar el comportamiento de los diversos sectores de la comunidad a través de campañas educativas, estrategias de innovación tecnológica que permitan el desarrollo de bienes de consumo que generen el menor impacto ambiental, y estrategias sociales. Se concluyó que el ecodiseño, la implementación de tecnología innovadora y el acceso a préstamos para actividades circulares son esenciales para el desarrollo del modelo, además, las experiencias exitosas de los países desarrollados en términos de E.C. pueden ser replicadas ya que ofrecen la oportunidad de mejorar a través de estrategias pedagógicas tecnológicas y sociales.</p> Christian Manuel Moreno Rocha Luis Santiago Santamaria Jotty Copyright (c) 2022 Global Sustainability Research 2022-10-15 2022-10-15 1 2 1 11 10.56556/gssr.v1i2.313 Electricity Production Sources and CO2 Emission in OECD countries: Static and Dynamic Panel Analysis https://www.jescae.com/index.php/gssr/article/view/327 <p>Industrialization, urbanization, population growth, and changes in lifestyle have all contributed to a rise in the OECD countries' risk of global warming. The amount of carbon dioxide (CO<sub>2</sub>) generated from heat and power sources put out is directly related to how much electricity they make. Finding out which sources are bad for the environment, and which are not is the primary motivation behind this study. The impact of different approaches to energy production on carbon dioxide emissions is analyzed using OECD data. The data is analyzed using Quantile Regression (QR), Generalized Method of Moments (GMM), and Pooled Ordinary Least Squares (OLS). The study found that CO<sub>2</sub> emissions were significantly impacted in a positive direction when electricity was generated using coal, oil, or gas. The emissions from coal-fired power plants are the most detrimental. The generation of hydroelectricity and other forms of renewable energy can reduce CO<sub>2</sub> emissions in all regression models. The most compelling evidence of a correlation between CO<sub>2</sub> emissions and energy sources was uncovered in this study. In order to produce credible findings, the paper used both QR and GMM methods. Important implications for environmental policy are drawn from this article's findings. Both are required to lessen our reliance on fossil fuels and promote the development of renewable energy sources like solar, wind, and hydroelectricity.</p> Liton Chandra Voumik Md.

As a key pillar of sustainability, the role of every societal sector is critical in the consummation of environmental equilibrium. This study was carried out to develop a common framework for the programming of green activities in the realm of public safety sectors and to establish standardized indicators for the coordination and complementation of environmental sustainability efforts and initiatives. The study employed a quantitative research design that supports the use of an instrument to explore the constructs and dimensions of environmental sustainability in public safety through Principal Component Analysis (PCA) via Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA). The data harbored a 0.964 index on the Kaiser-Mayer-Oldin (KMO) Measure of Sampling Adequacy which implies that the explored constructs are highly correlated. Similarly, Barlett's Test of Sphericity demonstrated strong significance with a value of .000, implying that all indicators are factorable. Furthermore, the Scree plot revealed that there are two (2) dimensions that yielded an Eigenvalue that is equal to or greater than 1 (λ=≥1) namely Green Behavior and Sustainable Operations. The explored constructs and dimensions are necessary for the development of a model for Green Policing which can serve as a basis for monitoring and evaluation of environmental law enforcement and environmental sustainability efforts of the public safety sectors.</p> Alvin Romualdo Copyright (c) 2022 Global Sustainability Research 2022-11-27 2022-11-27 1 2 22 29 10.56556/gssr.v1i2.348 Assessment of Rural Transportation in Abi Local Government Area, Cross River State, Nigeria https://www.jescae.com/index.php/gssr/article/view/367 <p>Generally, the survival of regions and locations is predicated among others, on the corridors of accessibility. In contemporary times, transportation is regarded as the life wire of development and a lot is dependent on it. In spite of its importance, there is neglect in the development and maintenance of rural transportation system especially in countries of the developing world such as Nigeria. Based on this assertion, this paper seeks to assess the level of service of rural transportation in Abi Local Government Area of Cross River State. The study specifically sought to identify the various modes and means of transportation in the study area, examine the contributions of rural transportation to the socio-economic development of the area, identify the problems militating against effective rural transportation services and make recommendations for improvement. The study relied on questionnaire, interviews and observations for data collection. A total of 400 copies of questionnaire were distributed and 377 copies were retrieved and used for analysis. The study used tables, charts and simple percentages for data presentation and analysis. The hypothesis that was formulated was tested using simple linear regression. The study observed that motorcycle is the most preferred mode of transportation by respondents in the study area. The result of the hypothesis showed that the level of service of rural transportation does not have significant effect on the socio-economic development of the area. This imply that socio-economic development in the study area is not completely tied to the level of service of rural transportation. Furthermore, the problems militating against effective rural transportation services include poor funding and difficult terrain. The study suggested that funding for road rehabilitation be increased by the government and other sources of funding such as Public Private Partnerships be advocated in the road development/rehabilitation process.</p> <p>Keywords: Transportation, rural transportation, mode of transportation, means of transportation, level of service.</p> Sunday I.
