    Women and men, owning to their gendered responsibilities, possess unique knowledge sets about forest resources. This knowledge can be applied to achieving successful sustainable forest management. Accrediting this unique knowledge provides both legitimate recognition of their engagement in decision-making processes and equitable share of benefits.

    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.

    This study is part of the International Energy Agency's (IEA) ongoing analysis of global renewable energy markets and policies, building on the key principles for effective policy design identified in "Deploying Renewables: Principles for Effective Policies" (2008). This paper examines the situation in 6 of the 10 countries that comprise the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN): Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. In 2007, ASEAN-6 represented more than 95% of energy demand in southeast Asia.

    This paper examines strategies for carbon sequestration, and how this is provided for under the Kyoto Protocol, with particularly attention to Malaysia's carbon sequestration strategies. Carbon sequestration is a significant technique that plays a major role in bringing down global warming. Since it is comparatively cost effective and multi beneficial, "Annex 1" countries of the Kyoto Protocol have shown their interests in initiating carbon sequestration projects with Non-Annex 1 countries.

    Reform of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is a key issue in advancing the objectives of the Kyoto Protocol. The CDM was created with the mutual objectives of providing cost-effective abatement opportunities for industrialized countries and to advance sustainable development in developing countries. Current literature, however, suggests that the CDM is failing to deliver on its promise of a "development dividend". This article compares and contrasts different host-country approval processes and investigates how this is reflected in CDM project quality.

    Malaysia intends to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity of GDP by 45% by 2030 relative to the emissions intensity of GDP in 2005. This consist of 35% on an unconditional basis and a further 10% is condition upon receipt of climate finance, technology transfer and capacity building from developed countries.The INDC also includes a section on adaptation.

    The common problem of building air-conditioning systems such as those in non-residential buildings is the inability to match the system’s cooling capacity to the imposed cooling load. Most often the compressors are set to operate at the maximum speed providing maximum cooling capacity at all time resulting in unnecessary waste of energy. Even the traditional on/off thermostat control is not desirable from the perspective of compressor’s operation and affects the life span of the system. ATCS on the other hand allows the compressors to operate continuously at reduced capacity.

    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.
