Ballast water is an essential component for the stability of the vessels during voyage. Ballast water is taken in from the source port when the ship does not carry cargo and subsequently de-ballasted at the destination port when the cargo is taken in. A wide variety of marine organisms are transported from one place to another through the ship’s ballast water. The only ballast water management option so far is ballast water exchange at mid ocean. This process is neither efficient nor safe.

PFAN Call for Proposals: Project Development and Financing Initiative for Climate & Clean Energy in AsiaType:NewsPublication date:
The Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN) provides guidance in areas such as economic feasibility, project structure, investment and financing, preparation of the business plan and introductions to investors. PFAN is one of few actors in this space addressing barriers to climate finance at the small and medium enterprises (SME) level in developing countries and emerging economies on demand and supply sides, i.e., shortage of bankable projects on the demand side and ability to assess risk and conservative lending culture on the supply side.
Cool roofs can help reduce the heat island effect and also help improving the energy performance of the buildings. A cool roof can reflect the sun’s heat and emits absorbed radiation back into the atmosphere at a higher rate than standard materials. The cool roofs technology has been used for more than 20 years (EPA, 2012). The cool roof basically helps in reflecting sunlight and heat, thus reducing the temperature of the roofs. 20-‐25% of the urban surface is reported to be occupied by roof surface.
Greening the built environment is one of the most feasible and cost effective mitigation options for building sectors in rural and low density urban areas. Simple techniques, such as providing a garden and a pond, can be found in traditional houses in many countries. Taking a traditional house setting in Vietnam for example, plants in the garden provide vegetables and fruit, absorb carbon dioxide, offer shade and cool the ambient temperature.
