  • INDC of Central African Republic

    Type: 
    National Plan
    Type of National plan: 

    The Central African Republic aspires to reduce its emissions by 5% and 25%, respectively, in the 2030 and 2050 horizons in comparison to its reference BaU emissions and to increase its sequestration potential. With international support, it will emit around 33,076.1 kt eq-CO2 less in 2050 than the annual reference emissions.The Central African Republic also aspires to reduce emissions of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP), which science has shown have a significant short-term climate-warming potential and harmful effects on health, agriculture and ecosystems.

  • Approaches to Benefit Sharing: A Preliminary Comparative Analysis of 13 REDD + Countries

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday 1 January 2013
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Despite a large body of literature on potential benefit-sharing mechanisms for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation in Developing Countries (REDD+), the field of REDD+ has lacked global comparative analyses of national REDD+ policies and of the political-economic influences that can either enable or impede the mechanisms. Relatively few studies have investigated the political-economic principles underlying existing benefit-sharing policies and approaches.

  • Boosting the Power Sector in Sub-Saharan Africa: China’s Involvement (Partner Country Series)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday 30 June 2016

    Lack of energy access and frequent electricity shortages are major impediments to economic growth in sub-Saharan Africa. The region needs increased investment in the power sector, according to the authors of this report. Chinese-built power projects and financial support from China are contributing to power sector development, extending energy access and facilitating economic growth. The report analyses China's engagement in the sub-Saharan Africa power sector, including the key drivers underlying Chinese investments.

  • Landscape for Change? International Climate Policy and Energy Transitions: Evidence from Sub-Saharan Africa

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday 31 May 2016

    This article explores the role of the climate regime in facilitating decarbonization of the world’s energy systems. The authors examine how essential assumptions concerning the roles of the nation state, carbon markets and finance and technology in international climate policy are challenged by the realities of the actual process of transitions in energy systems. Drawing on the region of sub-Saharan Africa, the authors examine the potential for international climate policy to foster new trajectories towards decarbonization.

    Wednesday 1 June 2016

    This policy brief analyses the key drivers behind the adoption of solar pumping technology and brings to the forefront the cross-sector aspects that the authors argue should be considered in program design and implementation.

  • Solar PV in Africa: Costs and Markets

    Type: 
    Publication

    IRENA estimates that with the right enabling policies, Africa could be home to more than 70 gigawatts of solar PV capacity by 2030. This report discusses challenges in policymaking and proposes a coordinated effort to collect data on the installed costs of solar PV in Africa, across all market segments. Such information will improve the efficiency of policy support and accelerate deployment, according to the authors.

  • State of the rainforest 2014

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday 1 September 2014
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    Destruction of the rainforest and other tropical forests continue on a dramatic scale in spite of unprecedented global attention to the issue of deforestation and the role of forests in mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. The global figures for deforestation are contested: Two main sources of data, the FAO’s Global Forest Resources Assessment (2010) and a remote sensing study by University of Maryland (2013), use different technologies and definitions of forest and display huge variation between figures.
