Reducing global environmental damage should be handled by governments rather than individuals. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Global environmental
is the most pressing problem in the world nowadays.
, when it comes to tackle the problem, people are divided in their opinions. In many circles, it is argued that governments’ role is crucial in reducing the environmental
, while others put
the emphasis
on individuals’ attempt. While I accept the notion that individuals can reduce environmental
, I believe the governments can play a paramount role in improving environmental
. Environmental
can be slowed and stopped with practical actions that yield a healthier, cleaner atmosphere. Actually, it is up to each of us, as
an individual
, to take steps to slow down and eventually stop the damages through everyday awareness of our
use, and pay attention to the ways we can save electricity and minimize fossil fuel usage.
For example
, using electricity
lighting our
, driving a car, heating our room and throwing away trash all lead to greenhouse gas emission that causes environmental
severely. We can reduce emissions through simple actions like switching to
-efficient lighting, improving the efficiency of home appliances, reducing
required for heating, improving vehicle fuel-efficiency, and so on. But, the governments could certainly make more effort to reduce environmental
. They could pass laws to limit the emission from factories and industries and gradually they can force to the companies to use renewable
from solar, water, or wind power.
In addition
, the government can set forth a national blueprint for a clean
economy. Actually, they can outline a national climate action plan that puts emphasize on several key ways to reduce environmental damages. Apart from that, since environmental
is a global issue, they can work for an effective international climate treaty negotiation so that international efforts can be ensured in reducing environmental damages worldwide. To reiterate, as individuals we can contribute by taking steps to reduce our personal carbon emissions. But fully address the threat of global environmental
, we must need
from the government to support and implement a comprehensive set of climate solutions.

  • The abovementioned potential problems regarding to the challenge of final award could be prevented by including some safeguards into the Article 9 of the Prague Rules, while it is evident from the wording of the same article that the Working Group did not have any intention or concern for eliminating those risks. One of the most efficient ways for avoiding these risks is to obtain the appropriate waivers from the disputing parties. For instance, this safeguard is already to be found in the International Bar Association Guidelines on Conflicts of Interest, General standard 4(d) which indicates that “an arbitrator may assist the parties in reaching a settlement of the dispute, through conciliation, mediation or otherwise, at any stage of the proceedings. However, before doing so, the arbitrator should receive an express agreement by the parties that acting in such a manner shall not disqualify the arbitrator from continuing to serve as arbitrator. Such express agreement shall be considered to be an effective waiver of any potential conflict of interest that may arise from the arbitrator’s participation in such a process, or from information that the arbitrator may learn in the process. If the assistance by the arbitrator does not lead to the final settlement of the case, the parties remain bound by their waiver”. CEDR Settlement Rules also define this safeguard in its Article 3(3) as “the Parties agree that the Arbitral Tribunal’s facilitation of settlement in accordance with these Rules will not be asserted by any Party as grounds for disqualifying the Arbitral Tribunal (or any member of it) or for challenging any award rendered by the Arbitral Tribunal”. Therefore, silence of the Article 9 regarding the waiver instrument also increases the possibility of challenge procedure against the final award made under the Prague Rules.
