  • Supporting Early Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage Development in Non-Power Industrial Sectors, Shaanxi Province, China

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, January 6, 2012
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) refers to the matching of industrial high-purity CO2 sources, such as those of fertiliser plants or coal-to-liquid fuels facilities, with a sink industry that would make beneficial use of the captured and transported CO2, such as enhanced oil recovery (EOR). The capture of CO2 from industrial high-purity sources requires much less additional process development than conventional carbon capture from the power generation industries.

  • Market Potential of Innovative E-Waste Recycling Technologies in Developing Countries

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, January 1, 2009
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This paper presents the analysis of the market potential of innovative technologies for the e-waste recycling sector in selected developing countries. Criteria to compare and select innovative technologies are grouped along the elements of sustainability. The analysis rated a few technologies to have an innovation potential for developing countries. Based on a selection of developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America, the study suggests that all countries would have a potential for the adaptation of the mentioned pre-processing technologies.

  • A Comparative Analysis of the "Development Dividend" of Clean Development Mechanism Projects in Six Host Countries

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, January 1, 2010
    Objective: 

    Reform of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is a key issue in advancing the objectives of the Kyoto Protocol. The CDM was created with the mutual objectives of providing cost-effective abatement opportunities for industrialized countries and to advance sustainable development in developing countries. Current literature, however, suggests that the CDM is failing to deliver on its promise of a "development dividend". This article compares and contrasts different host-country approval processes and investigates how this is reflected in CDM project quality.

  • "Climate-Smart" Agriculture: Policies, Practices and Financing for Food Security, Adaptation and Mitigation

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, January 1, 2010
    Objective: 

    The authors of this paper outline the changes that agriculture will have to see until 2050 in the face of both climate change and rapidly growing demand. While agricultural efficiency has grown significantly in a very short period of time, the authors stress that there is much more to the problem than simple increases in acreage for production.

  • National Integrated Mitigation Planning in Agriculture

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Sunday, March 31, 2013
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This review of national greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation planning in the agriculture sector serves two objectives: (1) to provide national policymakers and others in the agriculture sector with an overview of national mitigation planning processes and aid them in identifying the relevance of these processes for promoting agricultural development; (2) to provide policymakers and advisors involved in low-emission development planning processes with an overview of mitigation planning in the agriculture sector and in particular to highlight the relevance of agriculture to national mitigation pla

  • Natural Refrigerants: Sustainable Ozone- and Climate-Friendly Alternatives to HCFCs

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, January 7, 2008
    Objective: 

    The handbook contains 31 articles by individual authors covering the following issues: policies and legislation on F-gases and related issues (Part 1), safety concerns and means to overcome (Part 2), a technical assessment of natural refrigerants in different applications (air conditioning, commercial and industrial refrigeration and heat pumps) (Part 3) and case studies by manufacturers and end-users providing insights into market developments and examples of successful conversions to natural refrigerants (Part 4).

  • Global Non-Ferrous Scrap Flows 2000-2011

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

    The goal of this report is to provide an understanding of global non-ferrous metal scrap flows in the context of non-ferrous industry developments over the 2000 to 2011 period. The focus of this study is on copper and aluminium as the two largest non-ferrous metals in terms of both material tonnages and market value. The report consists of four chapters. The first chapter, presented here, provides a brief backdrop to the analysis on non-ferrous scrap flows. It outlines growth in metal demand and the underlying reasons for this growth.

  • Understanding Integration Aspects: Renewable Power and Energy Fractions

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Sunday, January 1, 2017
    Objective: 

    This paper introduces the Renewable Power Fraction and Renewable Energy Fraction as self-defining metrics to quantify and visualise the performance of renewable generators versus the total load, and show how corresponding Fossil or Demand Side Management Power and Energy Fractions can similarly be defined.

  • 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.
