    Wednesday, December 7, 2016 - Wednesday, December 7, 2016 Europe/Copenhagen

    Under the UNFCCC, the 2015 Paris Agreement puts a strong emphasis on “independent nationally determined contributions” as the principal mechanism for countries to contribute to climate change mitigation and recognized the importance of accurate measurement of reduced emissions by sector for perio

  • Biorefinery

    Type: 
    Technology
    Sectors:
    Objective:

    With the surge in bio-based activities around the globe, a new concept called bio-refining starts to emerge. IEA Bioenergy Task 42 on Biorefineries defines biorefining as “the sustainable processing of biomass into a spectrum of marketable products and energy”. A bio-refinery combines/integrates a series of biomass conversion technologies to produce a range of products and (base-)materials, such as food, feed, chemicals, materials, oil, gas, heat and/or electricity. The concept is similar to a conventional oil-refinery where multiple petroleum products and fuels are produced.

  • Shifting diets: Toward a sustainable food future

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    A global convergence toward Western-style diets that are high in calories, protein, and animal-based foods poses challenges for food security and sustainability. To quantify the benefits of shifting these consumers to more sustainable diets, several possible diet shifts are modeled. A framework is proposed to tackle the crucial question of how to shift people’s diets through the retail and food services sector.

    Unconditional target: an 11.14% reduction of GHG emissions relative to the baseline scenario.Conditional target level: a 31.14% reduction of GHG emissions relative to the baseline scenario. The INDC also includes a section on adaptation.

  • INDC of Lao People's Democratic Republic

    Type: 
    National Plan
    Type of National plan:
    Country:
    Laos

    Lao PDR (People’s Democratic Republic) has identified a number of actions which it intends to undertake in order reduce its future GHG emissions, subject to the provision of international support. These are outlined in Table 1 together with preliminary estimates of the projected emissions reductions which will occur as a result. These estimates have been drawn from a variety of sources and need to be reviewed and updated to address consistency and accuracy in analytical methods once more reliable data and information are available. The INDC also includes a section on Adaptation.
