  • Improving Energy Security and Reducing Carbon Intensity in Asia and the Pacific

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

    This study discusses the real and present challenges in improving energy security and reducing carbon intensity in Asia and the Pacific. The region needs expanding supplies of energy to improve the lives of the poor through continued rapid economic growth, while simultaneously ensuring that this development is locally and globally environmentally sustainable. Given the current patterns of consumption, developing countries in the region are projected to account for 39% of global demand for primary energy by 2030.

  • Guidelines for Climate Proofing Investment in the Energy Sector

  • 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.

  • Global Anthropogenic Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gas Emissions: 1990-2030

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, January 12, 2012
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This report provides historical and projected estimates of emissions of non-carbon-dioxide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from anthropogenic sources. It provides a consistent and comprehensive estimate for 92 individual countries and 8 regions. The analysis provides information that can be used to understand national contributions of GHG emissions, historical progress on reductions and mitigation opportunities. Although this document is being published by the U.S.

  • Free Access Climate Change Data of Worldbank
