    • Nationally Determined Contribution to strive to achieve ecosystem neutral GHG emissions in 2050 (equivalent to 2.07 tons/per capita per annum) with the support of adequate (necessary and sufficient) international financial, technological and capacity building assistance, and to ensure adequate technological assistance and create a favorable environment for technology development and transfer.

    Context

  • Women of CEE/CIS Region in the Context of Sustainable Development: Road from Johannesburg-2002 towards Kiev-2003

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    The role of women in environmental decision-making has yet to be properly evaluated. This publication reports on the regional seminar and project ?Gender Mainstreaming Policy into the Framework of 'Environment for Europe' Process". It highlights the problem of women's access to and control over resources ignored by the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD), and the lack of attention given to gender issues in the UN Economic Commission for Europe.

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

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    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.

  • 2015 Nutrition country profile: Armenia

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    The 193 individual country profiles capture the status and progress of all UN Member States, and the 80+ indicators include a wealth of information on child, adolescent and adult anthropometry and nutritional status, in addition to intervention coverage, food supply, economics, and demography. This tool is particularly useful for nutrition champions at the country-level, as it presents a wide range of evidence needed to assess country progress in improving nutrition and nutrition-related outcomes.

  • Assessing progress against nutrition status targets

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    This chapter tracks countries’ progress in improving the nutrition status of their populations. It begins by assessing countries’ progress at meeting the targets for reducing undernutrition by 2025, set by the World Health Assembly (WHA) in 2012 as in the Global Nutrition Report 2014, we apply the global targets to each country to assess whether it is on or off course to meet the 2025 global targets. In this year’s report we use more fine-grained assessments of Progress that provide more information than whether a country is simply on or off Course.

  • Soilless agriculture

    Objective:

    Aeroponics

    Aeroponics is the process of growing plants in an air or mist environment without the use of soil or an aggregate medium (known as geoponics). Unlike hydroponice, which uses a liquid nutrient solution as a growin medium and essential minerals to sustain plant growth; or aquaponics which uses water and fish waste, aeroponics is conducted without a growing medium.
