A 2018 Stocktake on Sectoral Ambition in the G20
This study provides a clear picture of the state of G20 transport emissions, analyses already existing approaches for decarbonising the transport sector, and stresses the urgency of putting ambitious climate action on the political agenda. In the process, we hope to promote discussions about climate friendly transport, not just in G20 countries but everywhere. After all, the transformation of the transport sector can succeed only when the entire international community works together.

How Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions can be effectively used as building blocks for the implementation of countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions under the Paris AgreementType:PublicationPublication date:
This report gathers key messages from the Anglophone African Regional Workshop on "Converting (I)NDCs into action: the role of NAMAs in NDC implementation", which tool place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on 2-4 May 2016. On the one hand Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) are an important instrument to assist the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs)1 under the Paris Agreement. On the other hand, NDCs can provide long-term targets and hence an important framework for the implementation of NAMAs.

according to the 2006 IPCC Guidelines:
1) solid waste disposal;
2) biological treatment of solid waste;
3) incineration and open burning;
4) wastewater treatment and discharge.
Geladeiras ecológicasType:PublicationPublication date:Sectors:
No mundo industrializado, geladeiras fazem parte do cotidiano. No entanto, boa parte delas ainda gasta muita energia e, se não forem descartadas corretamente, o líquido que serve para refrigerar pode causar graves danos ao clima. Em uma pequena fábrica no pequeno e pobre reino da Suazilândia, são produzidos aparelhos de refrigeração que não prejudicam o meio ambiente.

With the publication of this catalogue, the BMZ-funded GIZ sector program ‘Basic Energy Services (HERA)’ provides a market overview of DC-powered appliances, useful for developing and strengthening business activities in rural areas. This 1st Edition does not claim to provide a conclusive and comprehensive picture but rather to offer an overview of selected appliances available on the market today, complemented with elemental technical details, established distribution channels and, where possible, practical experiences from the field.
Green Chillers - Development of a NAMA for Energy-Efficient Cooling Systems and Cold Supply in Indonesian Industry and Commerce,Type:PublicationPublication date:Sectors:
In Indonesia, the usage of cooling – such as refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) – increases by 15% per year in the industrial, commercial, and private sectors. The use of inefficient appliances with outdated technology is common in these sectors. The project aims to establish a Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) for industrial and commercial refrigeration and air-conditioning systems, thereby making a significant contribution to meeting Indonesia’s GHG emissions reduction targets.
