  • 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.

    GRIHA (Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment) is a rating tool that helps people assesses the performance of their building against certain nationally acceptable benchmarks. It evaluates the environmental performance of a building holistically over its entire life cycle, thereby providing a definitive standard for what constitutes a ‘green building’. The rating system, based on accepted energy and environmental principles, seeks to strike a balance between the established practices and emerging concepts, both national and international.

  • "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

    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

  • Derisking Renewable Energy Investment

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, March 1, 2013

    This report provides an analysis of (1) policy and financial de-risking instruments and (2) how they best fit into a developing economy to create feasible renewable energy projects. South Africa, Mongolia, Panama and Kenya are used as case studies to illustrate how instruments are being used in different situations. Implications of de-risking instruments are discussed in-depth to close out the analysis. Accompanying the report is a financial tool designed to help policymakers make more informed decisions about the most cost-effective courses of action.

  • 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.
