    Type of National plan:
    Country:
    Malaysia

    Malaysia intends to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity of GDP by 45% by 2030 relative to the emissions intensity of GDP in 2005. This consist of 35% on an unconditional basis and a further 10% is condition upon receipt of climate finance, technology transfer and capacity building from developed countries.The INDC also includes a section on adaptation.

  • Advanced Thermal Control Switchboard for water cooled package air-conditioning systems

    Type: 
    Product

    The common problem of building air-conditioning systems such as those in non-residential buildings is the inability to match the system’s cooling capacity to the imposed cooling load. Most often the compressors are set to operate at the maximum speed providing maximum cooling capacity at all time resulting in unnecessary waste of energy. Even the traditional on/off thermostat control is not desirable from the perspective of compressor’s operation and affects the life span of the system. ATCS on the other hand allows the compressors to operate continuously at reduced capacity.

    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    Lack of access to electricity is seen as a major constraint to economic growth and increased welfare in developing countries. In this report, the authors conducted a review of the evidence that investments in electricity-generating capacity have benefits for poor people, and what factors influence that relationship. The review analyzes a large and diverse range of literature dealing with the poverty impacts of increased generation capacity.

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    This report presents the findings of desktop research that examined the extent to which Southeast Asian countries are prepared for anticipated climate change impacts. It is divided into separate country profiles and includes analysis of the following countries: Lao PDR, Viet Nam, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Union of Myanmar and Malaysia. Each profile describes an individual country’s attributes, anticipated climate change impacts, vulnerability, necessary adaptation measures and cross-sectoral institutional settings.

  • Custodian farmers of agricultural biodiversity: selected profiles from South and South East Asia

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Agriculture is the largest global user of biodiversity. Over-reliance on a handful of crops puts global food security at great risk especially in the context of climate change. Selected and used by generations of farmers, agricultural biodiversity contributes to reducing malnutrition, alleviating poverty and combating climate change challenges. This diversity has been in decline for decades and is now in danger of disappearing and efforts needed to conserve them using both ex situ and in situ approaches.
