  • Climate Change in Africa

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, October 30, 2009
    Objective: 

    This report represents the World Bank"s operational response to climate variability and change in Africa. Grounded in a climate risk review of the Africa Region"s Sustainable Development portfolio, it adds the climate change dimension to the region"s development strategy and business plan, the Africa Action Plan (2009-2012). According to the authors, the plan and the climate change strategy are a "sound and realistic framework" for climate-resilient development in Sub-Saharan Africa.

  • CCS Roadmap for Industry: High-Purity CO2 Sources Sectoral Assessment

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, February 9, 2010
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Implementation of carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage (CCS) technologies for most industrial activities--for example, boilers, turbines, iron and steel furnaces and cement kilns--requires a capture step to convert a relatively dilute stream of CO2 to a higher concentration so as to allow economic transportation and storage. This report focuses on the role of high-purity CO2 sources in CCS demonstration and deployment. The roadmap will be a valuable resource to stakeholders, including policymakers and regulators, across the globe.

  • Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage Demonstration in Developing Countries: Analysis of Key Policy Issues and Barriers

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, January 4, 2011
    Objective: 

    This report discusses the value of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies for developing countries and identifies financial approaches for CCS demonstration. It also addresses two major barriers of CCS development: high capital costs and energy penalties.

  • Building Climate Resilience in the Agriculture Sector in Asia and the Pacific

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, January 12, 2009
    Objective: 

    The report seeks to provide a framework for approaching this challenge by establishing baselines of knowledge on climate impacts and plausible theories about how to build longer-term adaptive capacity and resilience. The specific objectives are to provide a critical synthesis of the evidence and future scenarios of climate change in the region by analyzing both the impacts of agriculture on climate change and the impacts climate change is projected to have on agriculture.
