"Institutional, Regulatory, and Municipality-Specific Factors Affecting Sewer Prices: The Case of North Carolina Municipalities" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association 67th Annual National Conference, The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-06-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p364431_index.html>

Abstract: The public sector is mainly responsible for the provision of sewer services in the United States; however, the costs for these services considerably differ from place to place. This paper examines the factors and characteristics affecting differences in sewer prices across municipalities. Especially, it focuses on not only cost factors but also non-cost factors, such as institutional arrangements and government regulations. To do so, it employs the demand and price equations for sewer services, under a simultaneous equations framework. It uses North Carolina municipality data for two years (2000 and 2002). The use of municipality data within one year has certain advantages over previous studies in this topic. One important advantage is that it allows controlling state-level factors, including state environmental regulatory policies and programs. Preliminary findings are interesting. In addition to cost factors, several non-cost factors, such as municipal mandatory connection ordinances, ordinances regulating sewer use, ordinances related to sewer pretreatment, pricing rate structures, and whether inside- and outside-city sewer rates are same, are contributing factors to differences in sewer prices across municipalities.

Abstract: Deforestation has been on the global agenda for a while. However, the issue has been framed within the context of climate governance because of the relation between carbon emissions and tropical deforestation,.

Climate governance is viewed as a process. The focus is on how governing takes place. Such perspective acknowledges the multiple and relational nature of power and considers that state and society are intertwined. It recognizes a wide range of actors and the emergence of novel governance arrangements (Okereke et al. 2009).

Brazilian emissions come to a great extent from deforestation in the Amazon region. The Action plan to avoid and control deforestation in the Amazon is a core instrument of the National Policy on Climate Change and has involved Amazonian municipalities since 2007. The actions have been focused in a number of municipalities, which together are responsible for more than 50% of deforestation.

This study assumes that to involve these municipalities in the national policy to combat deforestation means to engage them in the politics of climate governance. We aim to discuss the role of Amazonian municipalities in the process of climate governance and their relation with other actors focusing on how global processes impact the local level.
