    Webinar
    Date and time:
    Wednesday, August 12, 2015 - Wednesday, August 12, 2015 Europe/Paris

    This webinar has been designed by the UNEP DTU Partnership, a member of the Climate Technology and Centre Network (CTCN) Consortium and aims to give an introduction on Multi Criteria Assessment. The webinar covers examples for both climate change mitigation and adaptation.

  • Rainwater harvesting

    Type: 
    Technology
    Sectors:
    Objective:

    Rainfall can provide some of the cleanest naturally occurring water that is available. There is considerable scope for the collection of rainwater when it falls, before huge losses occur due to evaporation, transpiration, and runoff and drainage - before it becomes contaminated by natural means or man-made activities. Rainwater harvesting is a particularly suitable technology for areas where there is no surface water, or where groundwater is deep or inaccessible due to hard ground conditions, or where it is too salty or acidic.

  • Climate-smart agriculture in Uruguay

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    In recent years, farmers have been affected by increased climatic variability, reflected in periods of excessive precipitation and flooding and more intensive and frequent drought. Uruguay has long been considered on the forefront of natural resource management and conservation,  particularly soils.

  • Adoption Driver and Constraints of Resource Conservation Technologies in Sub-Saharan Africa

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    With increasing population, the pressure on agriculture to provide food and livelihoods is equally increasing. According to this study, given the ever-growing population in the arid and semi-arid regions of sub-Saharan Africa, and the decreasing possibilities to increase or change the cultivated area, standard recommendations across Africa"s savannahs are to make the best use of rainwater and to maintain the productivity of the land.
