Much has been written about the greenhouse effect and the implications on a local, national and global scale. What can the individual do with respect to alleviating the greenhouse effect and will this have a significant effect on the problem as a whole? This paper explores options for individuals and seeks to assess what quantitative and other impacts these behavioural changes will have on the greenhouse effect. The paper also examines the feasibility and costs of making such changes in the context of individual lifestyles and situations. A range of implementation strategies is discussed
Key word index: carbon dioxide emissions, energy conservation, policy implications, education, domestic energy usage, lifestyle impact, transport, recycling, buildings, behavioural changes.

It’s hard to believe that it is 6 months since the earthquake in Haiti. A new issue is emerging – that of mental health. Peace of mind is a critical component in the peace building process. Stability and physical security are of course paramount, however as a global village we need to be aware of the costs of poor mental health especially during the interim stabilization periods and in post conflict peacebuilding.

It is with great sadness that I have heard of the death of our valued colleague and friend Marc Plum in the UN Mission in the Haiti earthquake. The intelligent and charming Marc worked tirelssly for peace and stability in Haiti, often putting aside his own needs for the bigger picture of a better world. We will miss you Marc. Our condolences to his family and colleagues.
