  • Climate Change Vulnerability of Agroforestry

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Sunday, January 1, 2012
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Providing a detailed picture of the values for local people in the tropics is a difficult undertaking. Not only does this represent the difficulty in accounting for values outside formal markets, but it also reflects the multiplicity of the species involved and the many different ways in which trees are used. In these circumstances, one approach that can be used to gain insight is to focus on a narrower range of species, such as tree commodity crops commonly grown by smallholders, where more data on economic value are available.

  • Addressing Agriculture in Climate Change Negotiations: A Scoping Report

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, January 6, 2011
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    The report is intended to provide context and analysis for addressing agriculture in international climate negotiations, with the aim of helping to inform climate negotiators and other stakeholders by identifying options and unpacking issues of interest, and not to express opinions or be prescriptive in any way. The report will focus on agricultural production and food security, early action opportunities, trade, finance, technology transfer and capacity building and performance and benefits measurement.

  • ENVIS Centre on Renewable Energy and Environment

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, June 8, 2016
    Objective: 

    The major objectives of the ENVIS Centre are collection and dissemination of information in order to support and promote research, development and innovation among researcher, policy makers, academics and other stakeholders. The Centre is actively engaged in data gaps identification and bridging, resource generation and data collection, capacity-building and information dissemination activities.

  • Good Practice Study on GHG-Inventories for the Waste Sector in Non-Annex l Countries

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, August 31, 2015
    Objective: 

    The study aims to provide comprehensive guidance to policy makers and practitioners in developing countries [Non-Annex I countries to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)] for the preparation of national greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories for the waste sector. Though GHG emissions from the waste sector are still comparatively low compared to other sectors, they are continuously rising in developing countries due to changing production and consumption patterns. Experience shows that emissions from this sector can be reduced significantly at relatively low costs.

  • Broschüre “Cool bleiben: Das Spannungsfeld zwischen Wachstum, Kühlung und Klimawandel“

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, May 12, 2012
    Objective: 

    1. Steigender Energiebedarf und ein Recht auf Kühlung? Darf es ihn geben, den Anspruch auf eine Klimaanlage und einen Kühlschrank – ähnlich wie das Recht auf eine Heizung? 2. Kühle Kette für eine gesunde Versorgung Nach Schätzungen der Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO) verderben durchschnittlich 30 Prozent, in tropischen Ländern sogar 50 Prozent der Lebensmittel mangels angemessener Lagerung. 3. Grüne Technik und Wertschöpfung Das Zauberwort heißt Ressourceneffizienz. Der Schlüssel in der Kältetechnik dafür sind natürliche Gase. 4.

  • Refroidissement - Croissance - Changement Climatique

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, December 1, 2012
    Objective: 
    1. Une consommation d’énergie en hausse et le droit au refroidissement? Doit-on envisager un droit à disposer d’un réfrigérateur et d’un climatiseur, comme il existe un droit au chauffage?
    2. Des chaînes du froid pour un approvisionnement sain D’après les estimations de l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS), 30 % en moyenne de l’ensemble des denrées alimentaires sont perdues à défaut d’un entreposage frigorifique adapté. Dans les pays tropicaux, cette proportion atteint 50 %.
  • Buenas Practicas de refrigeración

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

    This manual should provide professional guidance on how to service and maintain refrigeration systems operating with new technology, e.g. ozone- and climate-friendly alternative refrigerants to CFCs and HCFCs. It addresses essential know-how on containment of HFC refrigerants which have a high global warming potential (GWP) and provides information on the safe use of environmental-friendly natural refrigerants, such as CO2, ammonia or hydrocarbons.

  • Climate-friendly room air-conditioners on hydrocarbon technology and new standards for natural refrigerants in China

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

    Still today, most room air-conditioning systems worldwide contain HCFC-22 as refrigerant. In China, with 260 million tonnes of CO2-equivalent emissions per year, they are the main source of ozone- and climate damaging HCFC-emissions. The air-conditioning sector is a fast growing sector in China with a huge impact on the global market as the majority of the world market is produced here. The predominant replacement options for HCFC-22 are hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) which are ozone-friendly but contribute to global warming.

  • Converting XPS Foam Production from F-Gases to Climate-Friendly Co2 Technology

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

    In China, the market for extruded polystyrene (XPS) foam used in building insulation increased the last years at double digit growth rates due to the fast rise of the economy and the associated construction boom. This growth in the market for insulation is brought about by new regulations on building insulation as part of the Chinese energy efficiency programme.

  • Cool und nachhaltig: Kühlung in der internationalen Zusammenarbeit

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, May 1, 2012
    Objective: 

    Kühlschrank und Klimaanlage – sie stehen ganz oben auf der Wunschliste von Menschen in heißen Ländern. Bis zum Jahr 2030 rechnet die Internationale Energieagentur (IEA) mit einem viermal höheren Energiebedarf für Klimatisierung in den Entwicklungs- und Schwellenländern im Vergleich zu heute. Auch werden oft chemisch hergestellte Gase als Kühlmittel eingesetzt. Sie schädigen die Ozonschicht und treiben den Klimawandel voran. Grüne Technologien nutzen hingegen natürliche Gase zur Kälteerzeugung, sind energieeffizienter und können mit Sonnen- oder Windkraft betrieben werden.
