Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN) held a three-day capacity development workshop in Nairobi, Kenya, on technologies for soil carbon enhancement in Africa. The workshop brought together 26 representatives from 14 countries, including the National Designated Entities (NDEs) and representatives from the Ministries of Agriculture from Botswana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, South Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe.
This invention provides a chemical synthesis route that creates iron oxide-based nanoparticles as a byproduct of a carbon dioxide storage process. Technology Applications: •Produce high purity hydrogen gas from steam and sequestration-ready carbon dioxide from syngas. •Recover iron from magnesium-bearing minerals. •Synthesize iron oxide particles during carbon mineral sequestration. •Capture carbon dioxide using mineral sequestration with magnesium-bearing minerals. Patent information: Patent Pending (US 20120225007)
Creating a sustainable food future: A menu of solutions to sustainably feed more than 9 billion people by 2050Type:PublicationPublication date:Objective:
With population growth and development creating ever-more demand for food (noted here as comprising two-thirds and one-third a function of the increase respectively), humanity faces a growing food gap between what will be needed in 2050, and what can sustainably be produced. In this context, this report presents the interim findings of the World Resources Report 2013-14: Creating a Sustainable Food Future; a multi-agency effort to analyse the food gap challenge and identify solutions.

This publication is the abridged version of the report ‘Strategies for mitigating climate change in agriculture: recommendations for philanthropy’. The report was designed to identify greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation options in the agricultural sector. It provides a snapshot of the global mitigation potential in the year 2030, compared to a hypothetical baseline in which no additional mitigation from agriculture is attempted, beyond current adoption and intensification trends.
Memorandum to the inquiry into the international challenge of climate change: UK leadership in the G8 and EUType:PublicationPublication date:
With this memorandum a coalition of The Corner House, SinksWatch and Carbon Trade Watch comment on a number of issues which have arisen form the UK Environmental Audit Committee's present inquiry into the feasibility of emissions trading systems as a framework for negotiating a post-Kyoto agreement.The Memorandum investigates whether an international emissions trading system (ETS) is feasible, what other alternatives to an international ETS exist and what approach and specific objectives in relation to climate change the UK Government should adopt.The principal conclusions of this Memorand

Rutgers scientists have introduced a pine gene for ammonium assimilation (glutamine synthetase [GS]) into poplar resulting in superior field performance including increased height and volume growth compared with non-transgenic controls. The GS transgenics can contribute significantly to strategies for increasing energy biomass production in woody perennials. Resulting trees have superior field performance including enhanced height and volume growth when compared to non-transgenic controls.
