    The UNFCCC Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN), the World Intellectual Property Organization’s Initiative (WIPO), the Northeast Water Innovation Network (NEWIN), and InvenTrust are inviting to join an innovation competition to address two key challenges, essential in pathways to a global, safe, and sustainable future:



    • Energy Efficient Water Desalination

    • Eliminating Leakage in Water Distribution

  • Tamar Technological Development r seals eliminate leakages in the main factories in Israel and were successfully installed in .USA Italy Brazil and Netherlands. The new MTZ shaft sealing technology has been introduced by Tamar Technologies This product is especially effective in sealing pumpage with particulates as well as for clear liquids It has application for pumps mixers agitators ribbon blenders and fans in addition to sealing shafts for dry powder handling. The Tamar Seal is analogous to a double mechanical seal that uses a flexible sealant as a barrier fluid.

    The proposed hierarchy of production forest management provides a modus operandi for forest concessions to move incrementally towards sustainable forest management via reduced-impact logging (RIL) and forest certification. RIL carbon registration components consist of developing a credible baseline, additionality and leakage arguments around the business-as-usual scenario by quantifying historical forest inventory and production records, forest infrastructure records and damage to the residual forest.

    Differences in climate policy approaches may have impacts on the relative competitiveness of domestic sectors between countries, and on the environmental effectiveness through carbon leakage. This paper examines the macroeconomic and sectoral competitiveness and carbon leakage impacts associated with a range of stylised mitigation policy scenarios. It also looks at various policies to address competitiveness and carbon leakage issues.

    The government of Denmark convened a seminar on trade and climate change. This report is a record of the discussions and analysis that took place there. Trade is an important channel for the diffusion of goods to mitigate climate changes. Trade liberalisation can also lower the costs of environmental goods (EGs). The Doha mandate calls for a reduction or elimination of tariffs and non-tariff barriers on EGs. However, the report wonders whether EG liberalisation can address climate mitigation efforts in a broader sustainable development context.

  • As solar cells continue to become more cost and energy efficient photovoltaic modules generate increasingly greater amounts of power at increasingly higher voltages. Potential induced degradation (PID) is the deterioration of a PV cell’s capability to generate power due to harmful leakage currents that neutralize its sunlight absorption regions. PID is worsened by high voltages high temperatures and humidity and power losses can take several months to a few years to become noticeable. PID can be prevented by disrupting the surface conductivity path of the leakage current.
