    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, January 4, 2012
    Objective: 

    This report has been published by Food and Agricultural Organisation, complied with papers presented in workshop organized by FAO/OECD. It addresses the different agro-ecological and socio-economical issues nationally and internationally in agricultural sector. It provides insights of building resilience to climate change impacts from different angles through risk management strategies, national policies and so on. Thus, it is highly recommended for the stake-holders who directly and indirectly involved in adapting most efficient ways for reducing vulnerability risk in agri-sector.

  • mfarmPay: Driving Climate Financing to Rural Smallholder African Farmers

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, January 8, 2019

    Smallholder farmers and lenders with smallholder lending portfolios ( which according to CGAP currently account for about USD 50 billion globally) are highly vulnerable to climate change impacts. mfarmPay, a novel parametric lending solution driving financing to African farmers, offers innovative data-driven solution to reducing climate risk in lending portfolios and incentivising the adoption of climate-smart farming approaches by smallholder food producers.

  • Gender and Climate Change: Gender Experiences from Climate-Related GIZ Projects

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, January 1, 2011
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development has made gender-specific challenges and responses to climate change a priority. The Ministry’s Development Policy Action Plan on Gender (2009–2012) calls for the elaboration of gender-sensitive and gender-differentiated strategies for adaptation to climate change, as well as improvements in the provision of related information.

  • Gender and desertification: expanding roles for women to restore drylands

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Sunday, January 1, 2006
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    In many of the world's drylands, women's traditional knowledge of and roles in natural resource management and food security are crucial. Women across the developing world spend considerable proportions of their time using and preserving land for food and fuel production, and for generating income for their families and communities. They are therefore severely affected when erosion and diminished soil fertility result in decreased crop and livestock, productivity and reduced income derived from these products.

  • Hazard mapping

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective: 
    Technology: 

    In recent years, countries around the world, including Japan, have witnessed the frequent occurrence of disasters such as torrential rains and flooding events arising as a result of global warming and earthquakes. This has raised the importance of taking prevention measures against various forms of disasters. In the event of such large-scale disasters, preventing and minimizing damage is of the utmost importance. This can be done through enhancing the voluntary disaster prevention capability of each region, and through self-help and mutual assistance.

  • Reducing adverse air flow

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, August 4, 2017
    Objective: 

    With more than half the Earth’s population now living in urban areas, some changes in the indoor and outdoor climates of cities are bound to occur. Climate scientists’ greatest concern is traditionally the urban heat island (UHI) effect – city areas where temperatures can be several degrees higher because there is lots of concrete and little blue or green infrastructure like lakes, rivers and parks. But another effect – air flow – can also cause serious health problems.

  • Innovative approach to mine water decontamination

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Ramboll Environ developed an innovative, sustainable and economically beneficial approach to addressing the impact of metal contamination on river sediments in the River Nent in Cumbria.

  • Urban resilience study for Asian Development Bank

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, August 4, 2017
    Objective: 

    The Asia Pacific region is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, and at the same time the region is increasingly exposed to the risks of climate change. Hence, substantial investments are needed in order to reduce carbon emissions and enhance resilience in the region's largest urban areas.

  • Raising the bar on Asian women's SRHR in the age of climate change

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, August 27, 2018
    Sectors: 
    Approach: 

    The inclusion of women’s SRHR within climate change discourse, policies, strategies, programming, and financing is long overdue. Coherence between the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement is of vital importance. Coherence has been much talked about and documented in negotiations outcome documents and national documents. The talk must now lead to concrete action, particularly to make a difference to women and girls living in the most marginalised and vulnerable communities who bear the double burden of gender inequality and climate change.

  • MSABP Multi-Stage Activated Biological Process Wastewater Treatment System

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective: 

    MSABP is water purification technology based on a revolutionary biological treatment process in which a special biological carrier provides immobilization of microorganisms in a multi-stage aeration tank. Principles of treatment are as follows. 1. The effect of multi-stage changes the biota in each tank in an orderly manner thereby forming a food chain. 2. The biological carrier provides an environment in which microorganisms remain active and are able to treat highly concentrated effluent and hard to decompose effluent. MSABP can be used for the following applications. 1.
